Live Streaming of DCSD Board of Education Meetings to Start December 12

CASTLE ROCK, CO – The Douglas County School District will begin live streaming its Board of Education meetings starting tonight, Thursday, December 12.  The board meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

"The Board is looking forward to getting out to the community more often, and we also want to welcome the community into the board room," said Board president Kevin Larsen.  "It seemed appropriate to update our technology to enable the community to directly view the board meetings, wherever that interested viewer happens to be."  

The launch of the Board meetings' live streams follows the success and popularity of the District’s graduation broadcasts from last spring.  The District streamed every DCSD graduation over the course of two weeks in May and plans to do it again in 2014.  The Daniel C. Oakes High School winter graduation will be live streamed today at 9 a.m., as well.

The board meetings’ live stream can be found on the District’s official Livestream channel at www.livestream.com/dcsdk12.  The live stream will be available a few minutes before the start of the meeting.

Closed captioning will be available for the Board meeting stream at http://www.captionedtext.com/client/event.aspx?CustomerID=1313&EventID=2... The service will be available at the beginning of the meeting.

Douglas County School District is Colorado's third largest school district, serving over 65,000 students.  Visit the District website atwww.dcsdk12.org.

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.
