YESS Officers and Team UP partner

Team Up is working with YESS officers to  collaborate 21st century learning with YESS programs, which will be taught in 13 DC schools. The DC Sheriff’s office explains “ We have alcohol, drug abuse and suicide prevention programs through Y.E.S.S., including our Parent Academy Resources.   Our anonymous Text-A-Tip program is a way students can tell us things privately that they don’t want to say out loud. We’ll listen and are there every day because your kids are our priority.”

6th, 7th and 8th grade topics  include lessons on:  Relationships, Internet Safety and Drugs. Team Up will be partnering by supplying officers needed classroom tools to make the lessons innovative, hands on and by getting kids up and moving. 

We look forward to this partnership to help kids learn better and succeed in these valuable lessons.

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.
