PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

The Principal Chronicles continue ... STEAM DAY!!!!!! STEAM Day is coming up next Friday and we are super-excited to have all of you come in and see what our kids have been working on (flyer). The whole purpose behind STEAM Day is to have an opportunity for our entire community to come in to CTE and have our students present their learning. The kids have been working very hard and are psyched to present. Here is what the day will look like:
   
2:00 - 2:45p: students will be touring other classrooms
   
2:45 - 3:30p: parents will be invited to go to classrooms
              3:00p: we have a special Grand Opening!
   
* Any parents who come to CTE before 2:45 can visit our specials teachers as they showcase their challenges

Also, we are trying to do a live feed for a family who cannot attend that day. This family volunteered to be our guinea pig since we have never done anything like this before. Essentially we will be conducting a live broadcast of their student's STEAM Day presentation which they can watch on their computer. If this works we will begin to live broadcast more events such as our EPIC ceremonies. We think it can help our working parents attend daytime events as they happen. Keep your fingers crossed!

That is it for this week, stay tuned for next week's edition of the Principal Chronicles - San Diego edition.

Last month, the Board of Education passed a resolution tasking the Superintendent to convene a task force inclusive of members of the general public and staff members. This task force will develop a survey for parents of students eligible for special education services and a survey for staff members who serve students eligible for special education services.

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”

Eleven Douglas County School District schools have been named recipients of the 2017 John Irwin Schools of Excellence Awards. The John Irwin awards are given to schools that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement over time. These schools received an "Exceeds Expectations" rating on the Academic Achievement indicator of the School Performance Frameworks reflecting exceptional performance in Math, English Language Arts, and Science.
