Be Part of our Strategy!

ATTN: STUDENTS, PARENTS, & TEACHERS!


Join us in building the first-ever DCSD Sustainability Management Plan! We will be hosting interviews at these locations to gather input for the development of a district-wide SMP:


Nov. 15 from 4:30-5:30pm at Highlands Ranch High School

Nov. 16 from 4:00-5:00pm at Pine Grove Elementary

Nov. 17 from 4:30-5:30pm at Castle Rock Middle School


About the Plan: We are members of a cross-departmental team comprised of dozens of departments, including Nutrition Services, Strategic Sourcing, Operations & Maintenance, Transportation, Planning and Construction, Outdoor Education, Professional Development, World Class Education, and more. We are motivated by the urgency of rising utility costs, the impact a growing district has on the environment, and the increasing body of research that supports the benefits of environmental education on students' well-being and academic performance. Our vision is Conserve Today to Preserve Tomorrow.


The purpose of the SMP is to document the state of sustainability across the district and set goals and strategies to guide us, with the ultimate goal of a 5-year plan. We would like to ask for your partnership in information gathering. We will ask 4 questions:


1. What is your school already doing (in terms of sustainability)?

2. What are your challenges?

3. What opportunities can you build from?

4. What are your desired outcomes?


Feel free to invite others, all are welcome. Will you participate in the SMP interviews?
