Rolling Start - New procedure for students

Instead of having students line up outside of the building each morning, students will enter the building from the main entrance between 8:20-8:30 AM and report directly to their classroom.  Teachers will supervise students in the classroom as they begin their morning routine.  We believe that this new morning routine will allow for a more natural transition to the start of the school day.  Supervision, including cross walk supervision, will not be provided prior to 8:20 AM so it is essential that students do not arrive prior to that time.


August 5: Meet Your Teacher

Parents show their child how to walk to his/her new classroom.

August 8: First Day of School

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.”
