New Approach to Conferences

We are excited to communicate to you our new approach to parent teacher conferences for the 2015/16 school year. Conferences will be scheduled as needed at a time convenient to all potential participants–teacher, parents, student, specialist–in order to meet individual needs. Our intent is to engage in more authentic dialogue about the personalized learning pathway of each student in an environment that is more conducive to flexibility for all–not driven by a back-to-back meeting approach conducting all conferences on one or two nights.  


Parents will have the opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher one time from mid-September to mid-October, and one time from mid-January to the end of February. We will continue to respect the time allocation of 15 minutes per conference to focus on key areas for each child. We will also continue to provide you with other important information in a timely manner as we progress monitor specific aspects of student growth, not waiting until conference time to share valuable data points.

Teachers will be notifying their families with specifics on how they will be scheduling these conferences.

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.”
