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.

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
