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.

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.
