The mission of the District School Improvement Team (DSIT) is to engage the community in the success of Adams 12 Five Star Schools in providing educational experiences to ensure students reach their full potential.
We will do this through:
- partnering with stakeholder groups;
- facilitating communication between parents and educators;
- providing tools and resources to empower parents to more effectively engage in their local schools;
- advocating for parents and community members who have questions or concerns; and
- mentoring parents and community members interested in leadership positions within their schools or DSIT.
There are different pathways for participation in the Adams 12 DSIT:
- Participate through regular attendance at monthly DSIT meetings. For a calendar of meetings, please click here.

"Being a member of DSIT has given me a great opportunity to be active in my child's education at the school and district level. DSIT provides open dialogue and communication with the district/school administration in addition to sharing that information with fellow parents. Developing lifelong learners is an important role of parents and educators. There is no greater gift than the gift of your time. It is good to be a part of the team."
