Library Staff Orientation

Teacher librarians and library staff across the district gathered at the District Library Media Center during the first week of August for informative learning sessions.

The sessions were strategically designed to provide a flexible schedule so that library staff would be able to integrate the training into their own busy schedules.  The DLMP Director, Linda Conway, stated, “We were hoping that this extended training schedule would provide enough options for our librarians and library staff to get the training they needed at their convenience.”  

Sessions included collection alignment, digital integration, and CITE assessment for our licensed teacher librarians. Attendees had the opportunity to learn about the latest features offered through the district’s library management software and created their very own Bucket List while utilizing the DCSD databases.  Other session highlights included how to create and facilitate a MakerSpace area, which houses our very own 3-D MakerBot printer.

Technology was a focal point for the sessions.  Participants left with the confidence to share their knowledge of eBooks and device apps with their staff and students.

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.
