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.

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.
