Bus Safety

Dear Parents,

The Douglas County School District Transportation Department is excited to announce a new innovation in student bus safety.  We are committed to the safety of our students, which is why we are pleased to offer this new technology.  ZPass + gives parents the ability to better track their students activities when it comes to riding the bus.  

ZPass+ gives parents the reassurance that their student has made it to and from school safely by sending a message every time their child swipes in or out of the bus. The service is being offered to all participants of the regular ZPass program, at no additional cost.

How does it work?

  1. Rider scans card while entering and exiting the bus*

  2. We record the data, time and location of the bus

  3. ZPass+ sends real-time text or email updates to parent.

It is really that simple.

District News

While the holidays are often a joyous time with friends and family, we know that they can also be stressful, not just for adults, but for children too. In addition to the annual pressure of gift giving, family gathering and travel, the holidays can trigger memories of the loss of loved ones and other traumatic events.

On Monday, December 4, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted unanimously (with six voting members) to approve a resolution to rescind the Choice Scholarship Program. The Resolution outlines three steps to this revocation: 1) Rescind the Choice Scholarship Program, 2) Repeal all district policies specifically related to the Choice Scholarship Program and the School Choice Grant Program, 3) Direct the Board President and/or Interim Superintendent to end the litigation challenging the Choice Scholarship Program in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The resolution takes effect immediately.

Equifax, Target, Yahoo... Unfortunately it is not uncommon to hear about— or fall victim to— data security breaches as computers become increasingly integrated into our lives. However, a generation of high school students are preparing to fill cybersecurity roles to help protect all of us against future attacks; and many of these future protectors are right here in Douglas County. Meet the Highlands Ranch High School CyberPatriots.
