The News Room
Last month, our hearts were heavy once again with news of another school tragedy -- this time in Parkland, Florida. It’s hard to imagine what our children are thinking about and feeling after hearing about this and other incidents of school violence that have recently taken place in the United States.
In light of these incidents, it seems appropriate to talk about the processes we have in place here in Douglas County School District (DCSD) to keep our students and staff safe every day in our buildings.
Last month, the Board of Education passed a resolution tasking the Superintendent to convene a task force inclusive of members of the general public and staff members. This task force will develop a survey for parents of students eligible for special education services and a survey for staff members who serve students eligible for special education services.
CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.
“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”
