UNITY OF PURPOSE: Community Conversations – DCSD Strategic Plan

Dear Mountain Vista High School Parents, Guardians and Community,

Douglas County School District is ready to start creating its road map for the next 3-5 years and we want to hear from families and community members from across our school district about what priorities and endeavors should be included in our plan.

Please help us make sure that the Mountain Vista voice is well represented at one of these upcoming community conversations. No RSVP is required. However, it is so important for our community members to provide input and insight into this plan. I strongly encourage you to attend!

Help us determine the next steps necessary to ensure that each and every student in the Douglas County School District is ready for a successful life after high school, and beyond.

If you have any questions about the DCSD strategic plan, or these community conversations, please reach out to me.

Thank you in advance,

Michael Weaver, Principal
