Stewardship Coalition

Eagle County School District is committed to activating sustained partnerships between adults and students as co-creators of compelling and vibrant learning communities. Stewardship Coalitions are an essential component of intergenerational communities sharing power and decision making. 

This is a place to celebrate our diversity and complexity, craft new visions of educational excellence, be creative, be courageous, be critical and make vital connections with ideas and with each other.

The intergenerational coalition is a representative group of diverse individuals committed to making positive changes in their school and community. With student perspectives at the center, the coalition collaborates to address complex educational challenges. 

Students engaged in the process will have opportunities to find their voice as an individual and as a leader. Their commitment to their school and district will provide opportunities to collaborate with community leaders, lead sessions for adults, and work with peers and younger students.
