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

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.
