Eagle Academy, Mountain View Elementary launch new websites

CASTLE ROCK – Two Douglas County schools have launched new websites, taking advantage of the robust web tool created for DCSD.

Eagle Academy’s website went live on Monday night, while Mountain View’s site debuted two weeks ago.

With this planned expansion, the new District web tool now provides school leaders with an easy-to-update web solution, for easier communication with the school community. The system also encourages better District communication by automatically displaying District information, including school closures and DCSD headlines.

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.
