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.
