Long Range Planning Committee seeking new members

CASTLE ROCK - The Long Range Planning Committee is 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 and evaluate school facility needs, including site selection, attendance boundaries and capacity solutions. 

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

Last month, the Board of Education passed a resolution tasking the Superintendent to convene a task force inclusive of members of the general public and staff members. This task force will develop a survey for parents of students eligible for special education services and a survey for staff members who serve students eligible for special education services.

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”
