Create Something Great

If you were fortunate enough to attend the recent Create Something Great meet-up held at the Innovation Pavilion on September 16, then you were part of an elite group of educators privileged to hear Adrian Bazemore from the Procter and Gamble eCommerce Division speak about connecting industry with education.

Mr. Bazemore started out by thanking educators for their willingness to take risks to create something great by creating future leaders.  He stressed the importance of using technology in education, and that educators need to push their students to go that extra mile with technology because technology will set them apart.

Mr. Bazemore advised educators to avoid using technology as a babysitter.  He urged educators to recognize technology as a platform to challenge students to aim higher.  “We have to be the ones to push back the challenge.  Push your students, they can do it!”

Educators attended breakout Learning Sessions that included Google Classrooms, Shifting Learning Environments, Capturing the Learning Using Video, Tech Devices, and Shifting Instructional Practices.

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.
