#CountyforCory Campaign a Huge Success

Students in the DCHS feeder area participated in the #CountyforCory Wish Week Jan 23-27, 2017. Students raised money for a Douglas County School District student named Cory, who is suffering from a terminal illness, to fulfill his wish of visiting Disney World.

CRE students and staff had a goal to raise $2000. At the end of Spirit Week, they raised a total of  $2,221.00!

In total, the DCHS feeder schools raised between $35,000 and $40,000 for Make-A-Wish. 

A Make-A-Wish experience typically costs between $5,000 and $7,000. The extra money earned will help other children make their dreams come true with other Make-A-Wish experiences.

District News

While the holidays are often a joyous time with friends and family, we know that they can also be stressful, not just for adults, but for children too. In addition to the annual pressure of gift giving, family gathering and travel, the holidays can trigger memories of the loss of loved ones and other traumatic events.

DCSD Board of Directors sitting at dais

On Monday, December 4, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted unanimously (with six voting members) to approve a resolution to rescind the Choice Scholarship Program. The Resolution outlines three steps to this revocation: 1) Rescind the Choice Scholarship Program, 2) Repeal all district policies specifically related to the Choice Scholarship Program and the School Choice Grant Program, 3) Direct the Board President and/or Interim Superintendent to end the litigation challenging the Choice Scholarship Program in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The resolution takes effect immediately.

HRHS Cyber Patriots

Equifax, Target, Yahoo... Unfortunately it is not uncommon to hear about— or fall victim to— data security breaches as computers become increasingly integrated into our lives. However, a generation of high school students are preparing to fill cybersecurity roles to help protect all of us against future attacks; and many of these future protectors are right here in Douglas County. Meet the Highlands Ranch High School CyberPatriots.
