PSD Insight Program

A leadership program about PSD

PSD Insight is a leadership program for people who want to learn about the history, governance, budget and curriculum of Poudre School District and its 50 schools. The goal is to educate and motivate leaders who want to be involved in education and our local schools to help shape the future for PSD students.

Due to the health crisis and not knowing future social distancing requirements, we've canceled the 2020-21 PSD Insight class. We plan to resume the class in the 2021-22 school year. 

Application process 

Applications are not being accepted at this time because of the health crisis. Apply for the 2021-22 class in summer 2021.

An application review committee (comprised of PSD staff and parents) reviews applications and selects up to 25 participants for the class. Applicants not selected for a particular PSD Insight class may reapply for a future one by submitting another application.
