Douglas County graduation ceremonies to be streamed

CASTLE ROCK – Whether grandma and grandpa live in Boulder, Philadelphia or Tokyo, they will now be able tune into their grandson or granddaughter’s graduation. The Douglas County School District (DCSD) has announced plans to stream all 13 graduations this spring.
 
That is quite a feat considering that the graduations are held at seven different locations, some overlap and most of them are scheduled over the course of one very busy week in May.

Last year, the District’s Community Relations Department successfully streamed the four graduation held at Sports Authority Stadium in Parker during a pilot program. This year the District offered streaming to every high school, to ensure families do not miss out if they cannot make it to the actual graduation ceremony. 
 
The majority of the graduations will be broadcast live on the District’s Livestream account: www.livestream.com/dcsdk12. Afterwards the video will be available on DougTV (Comcast Channel 54), the District’s app and DCSD’s YouTube and Facebook accounts.

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.
