Classified Librarian Certification

The District Library Media Center is excited to offer a Classified Library Staff Certification Program! Classes are taught by the DLMC staff on the first Tuesday of each month from 4:30-6:30 pm. Classes began in October 2014 and will run through April 2015 on a rotating schedule to offer flexibility to staff.


Courses include: Book Talks, Curriculum Support, Destiny, Digital Storytelling, Library 101, Library Programming, Techy Tricks, and one elective from the district PD course offerings.


This certification program is a great professional development opportunity for classified library staff of the Douglas County School District.  Linda Conway, Director of DLMC, stated that the “Center for Professional Development suggested that we create this certification to provide a pathway for classified library staff, and in the future other classified staff, to improve job performance and provide skills to reach a yearly goal.”


This successful Certification Program has reached full capacity, but any classified staff members interested in partaking should watch for email notifications starting in Fall 2015.

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.
