Long Range Planning Committee seeking new member

 

DOUGLAS COUNTY – The Long Range Planning Committee is accepting applications for one representative from the Chaparral High School Feeder area.

Douglas County School District’s Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) was established in 1983 as an advisory body to the Board of Education (BoE). The LRPC is responsible for continually analyzing community population trends to determine future needs pertaining to:

School capacity
School boundaries
School and facility site selections

Additionally, the LRPC reviews and makes recommendations to the Master Capital Plan, which is updated annually. The Master Capital Plan helps support the Board of Education in determining projects for current and future bond elections. The LRPC holds a valuable role as a liaison between the community and the Board.

Meetings are usually held the first Wednesday of each month, with additional subcommittee meetings as needed. Further public meetings are occasionally held to review situations with affected communities to gain their input. District staff prepares all information either in advance, or at the request of members.

If you reside within the Chaparral High School feeder area, and are interested in serving on this important committee, please submit an application online by December 6, 2013.

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.
