BASE Survey Results


The Douglas County School District Before and After School Programs survey all parents every other year. Survey results drive our continuous improvement at individual sites as well as system-wide.  Parents rank best practice statements based on national after school standards.  Individual sites also formally and informally survey parents as needed to drive improvement and gather perceptual data.   During the 2012-13 School year we had 1,611 responses.

Below is a brief recap of our 2012-13 responses.

# of Parents Surveyed:  1,611 (29% Response Rate)

  • 91% of parents surveyed agree and strongly agree that “My child likes coming to the BASE Program.”

  • 95% of parents surveyed agree and strongly agree that “Staff seem to like and respect my child.”
  • 95% of parents surveyed agree and strongly agree that “Staff are welcoming and respectful of me and other family members.”

District News

DCSD is requesting parent input on the health and wellness of our students. Last year, DCSD received a large planning grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC). The mission of this grant is to review the current state of DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices. As part of this process, we would like your input.

How are we doing?

We want to hear from you! How often do you prefer to receive email newsletters from DCSD? How can we improve the news and information you receive? This brief survey should only take a minute or two of your time. Thank you for giving us your input!

Tell us what you think, here!

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
