Core Competencies Evaluation (CCE)
Denver Public Schools provides a performance-based culture where our mission is to serve our students, and each other. The Core Competencies Evaluation (CCE) was developed to support and align expectations around performance across roles not currently covered under another formalized growth and performance system such as LIFT. CCE competencies were developed in consideration of diverse roles, to define and align the common behaviors that drive district success.
- Aug: Level Setting and Growth Planning
- Feb: Mid-Year Performance Conversations
- May/June: Year-end Performance Conversations
Who is eligible for the Core Competencies Evaluation?
The Core Competencies Evaluation is the growth and performance system for centrally managed employees who are hourly/non-exempt (vs. salaried/exempt) and are not in a bargaining unit/union. It also includes Food Service Workers, Food Service Kitchen Managers, and employees in the Department of Safety.
