The District Accountability Committee (DAC) Winter Forum will take place Tuesday, February 9 from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at Rocky Heights Middle School, 11033 Monarch Blvd, Littleton, CO 80124.  Students from the Ponderosa High School Wind Ensemble will perform to kick off the meeting. 

Forum topics include improving our SAC and DAC effectiveness; building stronger relationships with parents; an overview of school budgeting for newer SAC members; and, for those with more experience, an overview of the first year of the Master Capital Plan put together by the Long Range Planning Committee. The second part of the forum includes networking time by feeder, with focus on topics related to parental engagement and the District budget priority recommendations.

Presenters and guests include Kathy Brown, DCSD Parent and Community Liaison; members of the Douglas County Special Education Advisory Committee; Dr. Darcy Hutchins from the State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education (SACPIE); Scott Smith, DCSD Director of Budget and Todd Warnke, Chair, Long Range Planning Committee. Board of Education members, District personnel, and volunteers from Long Range Planning Committee and Fiscal Oversight Committee will also be present.

Please note we’ve extended the time until 9:00 so we can cover more content and have more time to interact and discuss. All are welcome, so we hope you’ll attend.
