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.

DCSD is requesting parent input on the health and wellness of our students. Last year, DCSD received a large planning grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC). The mission of this grant is to review the current state of DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices. As part of this process, we would like your input.

How are we doing?

We want to hear from you! How often do you prefer to receive email newsletters from DCSD? How can we improve the news and information you receive? This brief survey should only take a minute or two of your time. Thank you for giving us your input!

Tell us what you think, here!

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.
