CASTLE ROCK - The Community Survey is here! Corona Insights, the vendor selected by the Board of Education to conduct the survey, is sending online surveys to students, parents and employees in the District.

In July, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education hired Corona Insights, a neutral third-party research firm, to implement the District-wide survey.

The company recently finished the first phase of the Community Survey project. Taking feedback and ideas provided by parents, employees and other community members during six Town Hall meetings across Douglas County, Corona designed survey questions, which is being sent to five groups:

Parent Survey
Census of all DCSD Guardians via email

Employee Survey
Census of all DCSD Employees via email

Student Survey
Census of all DCSD High School students via email

Senior Exit Survey
In addition to the student survey, high school seniors will have the opportunity to answer additional questions about their experience

Community Survey
Survey will be mailed to 1,600 random non-parents in the community

Students, parents and employees should look out for an email from Kevin Raines, the CEO of Corona Insights, which will contain information about how to log into the survey.

Corona will keep your answers to the survey confidential. Email addresses will not be linked to survey responses. Responses to each question will be combined with all other responses for statistical analysis so that no one participating in this survey will be identified.

The Community Survey is absolutely voluntary, but the goal is to have everyone participate. The feedback we receive will help pave the way forward for our school district.

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
