Administration has lost sight of the goal which is doing what is best for students.

Teacher (Current Employee) Parker, CO

ProsDCSD is made up of a great community of students, families, teachers, staff, and surrounding community members. The DCSD has a long history of successful growth, both in size and educating students from preschool/ kindergarten through twelfth grade.

ConsDCSD currently has the highest paid superintendent in the state of Colorado, with the lowest morale for staff and students. DCSD has an unprecedented $83 fund balance, while continuing to make cuts that significantly impact students and their learning in a negative way. DCSD has a power-hungry Board of Education who are unaware of the needs and priorities of the community they serve
