Corey WiseAt a Special Meeting of the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education on Thursday, September 24, the DCSD Board voted 5-0 (two board members were absent) to name Corey Wise as the sole finalist to serve as the school district’s interim superintendent.  

Mr. Wise is serving in his 25th year in the Douglas County School District. He began in the district as a student teacher, and later held the roles of teacher, assistant principal, and founding principal of Legend High School. He currently serves as DCSD’s Executive Director of Schools for the East Highlands Ranch Region and Alternative Education. Mr. Wise is a long-time resident of Parker, where he resides with his wife and two children (one is a DCSD graduate and the other is a DCSD student).

In alignment with state statute, the Board will now move into a 14-day waiting period to continue vetting Mr. Wise, prior to officially naming him as the DCSD interim superintendent. 

“I love Douglas County,” said Mr. Wise. “I appreciate and value all of the people who make up the Douglas County School District. We are going to work hard to continue to make us better, to bring in the voices needed, listen to them, and bring the community together to find ways to make the school district stronger. It’s not about the past, it’s not about right now, it’s really about what we’re going to do moving forward.”
