2016 Walktober Challenge Results

Below are the results for the 2016 Walktober challenge.  I want to thank you all for participating in this challenge and I hope you had some fun.  We had over 1,400 participants which is wonderful!  We had a few ties, so the winners were drawn from a random drawing.  Even if you didn’t win a prize listed below I hope that you learned something through this challenge.  Maybe you surprised yourself on how many steps/minutes you got in your day.  Maybe you surpassed your goal.  Maybe you didn’t make your goal but you are more aware of how important it is to stay active throughout the day.  Whatever you learned I want to thank you for joining this challenge and please look for other fun Wellness opportunities throughout the rest of the year!

Stay Well!

DOUGLAS COUNTY – Graduation rates in the Douglas County School District (DCSD) continue to climb. Data released today by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) shows the on-time, four-year graduation rate is now 90.4 percent.

DCSD students also made an impressive showing at graduation. The class of 2017 earned more than $82 million in scholarships.

DCSD has one of the highest graduation rates in the Denver metro area. According to CDE, DCSD graduation rates have risen steadily from 81.9 percent in 2009 to 90.4 percent in 2017.

The top two-percent of female athletes in Douglas County School District (DCSD) were honored at the annual Girls and Women in Sports Luncheon last week at Chaparral High School. This year represented the 30th national celebration of Girls and Women in Sports Day, created to encourage and promote the participation of girls in athletics. The girls who were honored were selected by their school’s coaches, athletic directors and principals for their outstanding achievements.

Superintendent Search text based logo

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
