SAC Budget Priority Questionnaire for 2018-2019

School Accountability Committees are reminded to complete the Budget Priority Questionnaire for 2018-19 (launched by the District Accountability Committee at the September 27 Budget Priority Special Session) by November 3, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.

Prior to completing, SACs are encouraged to review the series of budget videos and to meet with your principal to have a collaborative discussion about the financial needs of your school.

The DAC Budget Subcommittee is available at dcsddac[at]gmail[dot]com to answer questions or provide assistance with the survey link, which was emailed directly to SAC Chairs in September.

Survey results will be presented at the November DAC Regular Meeting, when the DAC will work to develop its recommendations for the Board of Education. Survey results will also be emailed to SACs so that each has an opportunity to review in depth.

Thank you to all SACs for participating in this important process.

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.
