Northridge Celebrated For Going Green

Going green can mean a focus on health. Last year's 6th grade students are being celebrated on ColoradoParent.com in their Little Green Schoolhouse Newsletter. Northridge Elementary students researched water bottle usage, wrote argument papers to reduce the use of small, non-reusable water bottles in school, and were the catalyst to getting a hydration station installed in the cafeteria.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
