DCSD driver places 1st in School Bus Rodeo

PUEBLO- Les Lilly took first place in the Colorado State Pupil Transportation Association’s School Bus Rodeo, held on June 20 in Pueblo.

The competition began with a written test and then the drivers headed to a rigorous driving course, which tested perception and reaction. The course had several surprises including diminishing clearance, a serpentine lane and the challenge of parallel parking one of those lovely, big, yellow vehicles. They were also tested with an “emergency” scenario.

In the end, Les Lily came out on top, claiming first place and a spot at the International Roadeo Competition, which was held on July 15th in Milwaukee Wisconsin.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
