DCSD activates 90 minute delay

The Douglas County School District will be operating on a 90-minute delay today, Friday January 31.

While it appears the majority of the morning snowfall has stopped, additional time is needed to better ensure safe conditions.

We encourage everyone within the District to drive cautiously. Parents who do not feel comfortable with their students walking to school, waiting for the bus or driving in these conditions, should consider alternate transportation options. As always, we respect a parent's decision to keep their students home, based on their specific situation. Click on the Delayed Start button or go to for information about delayed schedule.

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.
