Long Range Planning Committee Looking for Members!

The Long Range Planning Committee is currently accepting applications for representatives from all areas in the District.

Douglas County School District’s Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) was established in 1983 as an advisory body to the Board of Education. The charge of the LRPC is to continually analyze population trend data, to evaluate population impacts on District education mission and support facilities, to collect community feedback, and to recommend appropriate actions to the Board of Education regarding school attendance boundaries, facility usage (including new construction, renovation and/or closure) and anticipated capital outlay requirements.   Additionally, LRPC members assist in assessing site feasibility for proposed uses by evaluating community impact and making recommendations on how sites should be used. Finally, LRPC members help to create, review, and present DCSD’s annual Master Capital Plan which contains recommendations for projects that may be needed in the next five years. The Master Capital Plan helps support the Board of Education in determining projects for current and future bond elections. The LRPC plays a valuable role in serving as a liaison between the community and the Board of Education.

Meetings are usually held the first Wednesday of each month with additional subcommittee meetings as needed. Additional public meetings are occasionally held to review specific projects or policy changes with impacted stakeholders.

If you reside within the Douglas County School District and are interested in serving on this important committee please complete and submit the application below.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1VBuGClUVuEZFUF91FWhPZD4ZpQSQ4opWMpPZmt7UyQM/viewform?usp=send_form

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis or until all positions are filled.

**Please be aware that if LRPC members apply to do work for DCSD (either by a solicitation, responding to an RFQ or RFP, etc.), then they may be asked to resign from the LRPC.

Any questions or concerns regarding the application process can be directed to Planning Manager Shavon Caldwell at 720.433.1032

District News

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.
