Do you know the plan?

Standard Response Protocol

During an emergency, having a simple game plan in which everyone knows his or her role, is key.

The premise of Standard Response Protocol (SRP) is simple-there are four specific actions that can be performed during an incident, as shown below.

Lockout
Lockout is followed by the Directive: "Secure the Perimeter" and is the protocol used to safeguard students and staff within the building. 

Lockdown

Lockdown is followed by "Locks, Lights, Out of Sight" and is the protocol used to secure individual rooms and keep students quiet and in place.
Evacuate
Evacuate is always followed by a location, and is used to move students and staff from one location to a different location in or out of the building.
ShelterShelter is always followed by a type and a method and is the protocol for group and self-protection.

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.
