Rumble at the Rock is a Smashing Success

Eleven schools from Douglas County School District, Cherry Creek High School and Regis High School competed at Douglas County High School last Saturday.  Over 150 students with intellectual disabilities and their partners participated in the Rumble at the Rock basketball tournament.  Douglas County Poms hosted a unified poms clinic during the week and the cheerleading group cheered at the tournament.  Mary Caricato, one of DCSD’s Unified Liaisons with Special Olympics noted that Unified sports are growing quickly within the school district.  One look at the glowing faces in the photos demonstrates that everyone had a fantastic day!

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
