District News

DCSD Board of Directors sitting at dais

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.

HRHS Cyber Patriots

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.

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
