In my role of Communications Officer, I strive to support all DCSD public schools via our district’s key elements of: 1) educational excellence, 2) stakeholder satisfaction, and 3) a positive culture and climate.

As a Douglas County resident and parent, I am incredibly committed to the success of each and every public school in the Douglas County School District. I’m excited to be part of such a talented team of communications professionals.

I have over 17 years of experience in communications, public relations and marketing; ten years of that experience is in the field of K-12 public education. Prior to joining DCSD I served as the Communications Director for the Colorado League of Charter Schools, a non-profit membership organization.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from the University of Colorado at Denver as well as a certificate in graphic and web design from Platt College.

My career began in Chicago in the publishing and advertising industry. In 1999, I relocated to Colorado and earned my web design certification, taught graphic design on a collegiate level, and started a freelance business for 12 years, while raising a family.

I'm obsessed with connecting people with each other using innovative, effective, and meaningful ways.

I'm a 2006 Ponderosa High School graduate and I'm thrilled to have the privilege to serve the community I call home. I hold a Master of Strategic Communication and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Westminster College in Salt Lake City, UT.

Chris ChelineChris Cheline - Multimedia Producer | 720.454.2699

I have the privilege of telling the inspiring and unique stories that are all around here in the schools of Douglas County. I am a career storyteller since 2001. I previously was a Photojournalist at 9News, Fox31, 7News, and KRDO. I love finding fun ways to tell a story with a camera and a microphone. You'll also find me LiveStreaming our board meetings and graduations.

This district is important to me because it’s also my home. I have a wife and three young boys. They are all students in Douglas County. When I’m not working a camera or immersed in editing you’ll find me playing bass at church or in a rock band, clanking shots on the basketball court, or cheering on my Broncos and Nuggets.
