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.

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.
