CCAT (Coal Creek Accountability Team)

The Coal Creek Accountability Team (CCAT) is a board appointed by the principal as required by BVSD Policy and Colorado law. Its purpose is to give parents and other members of the school community a voice in major decisions made by the school administration. The CCAT is Coal Creek’s School Accountability Committee.


The committee looks at school goals, reviews school budgets, supports parent engagement, and drives school improvements. BVSD requires each school to have an active accountability team to serve as a grassroots organization for accountability that advises the school principal. The school’s principal is ultimately responsible for ensuring compliance with all federal, state, and district requirements and meeting the academic performance expectations defined by the BVSD. Based on state statute and BVSD policy, at a minimum, the CCAT is responsible for participation in: 

  • the school budget

  • school improvement

  • parent engagement 

  • accountability team self assessment

  • when requested by the district, principal development plans and evaluations. 

The CCAT board is appointed by the principal. In the event of a vacancy, the CCAT board can select replacements.

CCAT Meeting Schedule

CCAT Meetings will be held quarterly from 3-5 pm in the Coal Creek Library on the following dates:

  • September 29

  • October 20

  • January 26

  • April 27

Meetings are open to the public.
