Road to Return: DCSD 2020-2021

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) plans to return to in-person learning this August, unless healthcare experts, the Colorado Department of Education, and/or Governor Polis advise otherwise. The safety and well being of our students and staff remain a top priority, thus we are working with our DCSD Restart & Recovery Task Force to create a restart plan which will guide us in welcoming students back to an “as close to normal as possible” classroom experience in August, while taking necessary precautionary measures to keep students safe. 

A robust, comprehensive DCSD eLearning option will also be offered at each of our schools as an alternative to in-person learning for families who prefer their student(s) continue learning remotely. eLearning will be aligned with researched-based online pedagogy to include “LIVE” video instruction, grading, and attendance.
