Douglas County School District (DCSD) is one of 10 school
districts in the nation chosen by the U.S. Department of Education
to present at a federally sponsored conference in Denver on Feb. 15
and 16. DCSD was chosen because of its leadership and innovative
efforts involving focused labor-management collaboration resulting
in student achievement.
“We have seen how good labor-management relations can create the
conditions that drive student success, so we want to bring together
leaders in labor and management who are committed to collaboration
around bold reforms,” said Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.
The presenting school districts will share best practices with
the 500 attendees representing school districts and labor leaders
from across the country.
“We are honored to co-host and present at this conference,” DCSD
Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Celania-Fagen said. “We look forward
to sharing the work we have done with our partner, the Douglas
County Federation. Douglas County School District's collaborative
approach is seen in the development of our Continuous Improvement
of Teacher Effectiveness (CITE) initiative. It was also critical in
creating the only waiver/candidate program in Colorado that allows
us to certify our own teachers in hard-to-fill positions. We are
excited that our tradition of innovation and collaboration will be
showcased for a national audience.”
