HIGHLANDS RANCH – Students in Jim McClurg's film editing class at Rock Canyon High School recently used their talents to bring attention to public libraries and motivate kids to read.

Teams from the class produced four videos for submission to the Colorado Teen Video Challenge, sponsored by the Colorado State Library. The public service announcements were designed to promote the Collaborative Summer Library Program's 2015 summer reading theme, "Unmask!"

"Stolen Knowledge," produced by Max Orgill, Sam Hulsizer, and Dan Lindeen was named the winner of the challenge, and now appears on the Colorado State Library website. The video is available for promotional use by public libraries throughout the country.

The remaining three submissions from Rock Canyon were all named finalists. Each of the videos from RCHS will be included in an announcement sent to public libraries throughout the state. Producers of the winning video will receive $150, and all of the teams will receive a certificate signed by Governor Hickenlooper.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


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.
