school blueprint

CASTLE ROCK - It is not too late to provide feedback regarding how the Douglas County School District can meet its current and future needs. 

At the request of the Board of Education, following a suggestion by the Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC), District staff has been working to inform stakeholders regarding DCSD’s current capital needs, future growth needs and potential funding strategies, as well as soliciting feedback about ideas for meeting the needs.

The presentation, which is also available online, has been made at a dozen regional forums, as well as presentations to different government councils and community groups in January and February.

The District is now encouraging anyone who has not yet participated to watch the video and then provide feedback online by Friday, March 6.
