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. Please complete this survey (DCSD Creating Healthy Schools Planning Grant - Parent Survey) by November 30. 

Our goal is to enhance the amazing health initiatives currently in our schools, and develop more opportunities to improve students’ overall well-being. Districts throughout Colorado are also doing this work, as the link between student health and success in academics and life is well studied.

What: Parent Survey
When: November 1-30 
How: Online, anonymous, no individual student or parent data will be collected
Why: Your input will shape the strategic plan for a comprehensive student health and wellness program.

If you would like more information, please contact Laurie LaComb, DCSD Healthy Schools Coordinator at: lllacomb[at]dcsdk12[dot]org or Lisa Kantor, Director, Health, Wellness, and Prevention at lekantor[at]dcsdk12[dot]org

Thank you!

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.
