Parent and Student Satisfaction World Class Target development continues

CASTLE ROCK - The Douglas County School District (DCSD) is looking for parent volunteers to participate in the development of Parent and Student World Class Targets.

World Class Targets are one component of our pay for performance system in the Douglas County School District. World Class Targets were developed from a convergence of research designed to impact student achievement through highly effective teaching practices. The school district has been working with PCG (Public Consulting Group) to create valid and reliable parent/student satisfaction surveys.

This fall, teachers will be engaging in a larger-scale pilot study. The survey will be taken by students and their parents and will inquire about the teaching and learning experiences in the classroom.

Should you have any questions about the fall pilot please contact Personalized Learning at 303-387-0077 or jacable[at]DCSDk12[dot]org to learn more.

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.
