Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children teams with DCSD on award-winning mobile app

DOUGLAS COUNTY – Staying in touch and in-the-know is easier and more accessible than ever. Thanks to the support of Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, the DCSD Mobile App is available for both iPhones and Droids again this year.
Designed by Educational Measures and sponsored by Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children/HealthONE, the app is the first of its kind in Colorado and one of the first in the nation. The DCSD app includes news, notifications, an event calendar, parent portal, lunch menus, DCSD directory and DougTV. The success of the app has resulted in constant improvements and additional sponsors including CU Denver and Jones International University.
In April, the Colorado School Public Relations Association (COSPRA) honored the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Mobile App with the Golden Achievement Award, one of the organization’s highest honors.
“We want to provide our community with as many opportunities to connect with us as possible,” said DCSD Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen.
“The app allows us one more way to communicate with our students, staff, parents, and community. It’s a great way for parents to receive the latest district news and for community members to learn more about our schools. We have amazing district and we want the entire community to share in the excitement of our achievements.”

The app is available at Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.

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.
