eDCSD is  K-12 online education program that is offered by Douglas County School District.

At eDCSD, we understand that not all students thrive in the same environment and not all students learn the same way. Seeing this disconnect between traditional teaching and maximizing a student’s potential, we created another education option for your child. Online learning allows a student’s creativity, problem-solving, and communication skills to combine with technology for the ultimate educational experience.

eDCSD utilizes online curriculum provided by Connexus, PLATO, Fueled, and eDynamic. These curricula are used by thousands of students across the country, which are high-tech, high-touch comprehensive learning packages that offers flexible, dynamic, and adventurous learning opportunities for students.

Building a strong community is a vital element at eDCSD. Receiving an education online doesn’t mean your child won’t participate in the social activities vital to their development. Relationships within our community are what make this program a success. Relationships are created between students, families, and eDCSD teachers and staff in a variety of ways including:

  • Live Virtual Classes

  • Online Help Sessions

  • Blended Learning Opportunities

  • Field Trips

  • eDCSD Events​

The eDCSD community is dedicated to providing a safe environment that encourages student connection and fosters collaboration.  We believe that digital literacy and citizenship skills have become essential for students in the 21st century.  We are committed to teaching our students how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly.

Personalized learning is another important part of eDCD’s online education. Students are placed in courses that will best fit their abilities and interests. Teachers differentiate instruction according to student needs as they progress at their own pace.

eDCSD is part of the Douglas County School District.  Students that reside in Douglas County and attend a DCSD school are eligible to apply to eDCSD.  We accept students on both a full time and part time basis.  Parents and students can work with our staff to design an educational program that best meets their needs. Schedules can incorporate classes both at a traditional brick and mortar school and online.

If your family believes attending a Colorado online high school, middle school, or elementary school is the best option for your child, contact eDCSD today!

eDCSD respects the choice you make for your child. Whether you choose online education, a combination of classroom and online education, or traditional education, we are committed to helping your child thrive.
