DOUGLAS COUNTY- When students are given voice and choice in their learning, encouraged to create and invent and are connected to the world outside of their classrooms, the result is not just more engaged kids-- but students that are better prepared for life after school.

Many Douglas County schools offer television or film programs. At some DCSD schools, these digital media students are calling the shots-- from budgeting, to screenplay writing, to storyboarding, to location scouting, interviewing, and more. Watch how the skills they are gaining--at every level of school-- are benefitting these students for their futures.

 

Middle School Level

Students at Mountain Ridge Middle School are responsible for everything from the screen play to the budget while making the school's second full-length film-- Twilight Ridge The Movie. The class is an excellent example of sustainable learning at the middle school level.

 

High School Level

There is something special about room 4104 at Rock Canyon High School. Even first thing in the morning students are excited to be at school and are highly engaged in their learning. Students are empowered to take risks, resulting in amazing technical feats and unparalleled originality, culminating in a year-end film festival. 

 

Elementary School Level

There are TV & Film students at the Elementary level too! Students at Roxborough Elementary take on leadership roles, leading other students in productions for the entire school community and taking charge of the daily announcements.
