THE PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

The Principal Chronicles continue ... As I write this I am sitting at the PACE center waiting for our PK-12 meeting to start. This is the best PK-12 meeting of the year as it is when the high school seniors get their scholarships that the DCSD principals fund. Every school has one recipient and each high school principal gives a speech about the students. It is such a great way to start the morning. In addition, they always start the day with some musical performance by kids. Today it is the Legend HS jazz band. They are currently rocking out and I feel like I am in a jazz club.

Also, tonight is the Apple Awards banquet. Aubrie Duncan and Denise Hollowell are our winners this year and I am really looking forward to honoring them for all of their hard work. Each year students, parents, and staff vote for one certified and one classified person. It should be a great night.

Sorry, this is so short but I am feeling compelled to stop typing and sit back and take in the music. May the 4th be with you all.

Until next time when the Principal Chronicles continue ...

District News

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.
