The Rest of the Story: Buffalo Ridge Rumor

A Buffalo Ridge Elementary teacher recently resigned in the middle of the school year. There have been several inquiries from parents, as well as rumors on social media about the treatment of this employee on his last day.

Posts on social media have falsely claimed that law enforcement and/or armed District security escorted the teacher and two children from Buffalo Ridge.

Below is the school surveillance video of the teacher and his two children leaving the building unescorted.

The District has obscured the faces of students to protect their identities.

After winning five Olympic gold medals, it might be easy to think that Missy Franklin has it made. The Colorado-raised swimmer was quick to set the record straight, however. She told the girls attending the third-annual Shine Summit that she is far from perfect, and that is okay.

Douglas County School District is celebrating 21 students who have been named National Merit Scholarship Finalists, making them part of an elite group representing less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors. These academically talented students advance in the competition, which awards 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $33 million.

At the March 7 special meeting of the Douglas County School District Board of Education, a joint subcommittee recommended placing a ballot initiative on the November 2018 ballot to address funding challenges in the school district. DCSD has not had a successful ballot measure since 2006.
