Safeguarding Children: Building Resiliency

CASTLE ROCK - Next month the Douglas County School District will be teaming up with local law enforcement and other community partners to provide a series of regional forums on the safety of our students. In addition to providing parents with information about the physical safety measures we’ve taken, during Safeguarding Children: Building Resiliency we’ll be discussing the importance of psychological safety and what you can do to support your student’s wellbeing.

PARKER: April 9 – Chaparral High School
HIGHLANDS RANCH: April 16 – ThunderRidge High School
CASTLE ROCK: April 23 – Castle View High School

All three forums will be held from 6-9 p.m.

In conjunction with the forums, there will also be a resource fair on April 23. Parents will be able to meet experts from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas Arapahoe Mental Health, Children’s Hospital, and many more community organizations.

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.
