Third, Eagle Summit CDS participates in joint and site staff meetings to establish expectations for school processes and functions. Although we meet as a joint alternative education staff several times throughout each year, which includes Chaparral HS, Snowline Virtual School, and Eagle Summit CDS, the majority of the work that moves student achievement forward at Eagle Summit takes place during the site specific PLC meetings.
