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.

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.
