About the DCSD Community Survey

On July 19, 2016, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education approved a proposal by Denver-based research firm, Corona Insights, to implement a district-wide community survey.

The process began in March 2016, when the Board tasked a committee to interview possible vendors to provide a community survey. The committee made up of DCSD employees and former Board President, Meghann Silverthorn, chose Corona Insights from seven survey companies.

Following regional town hall meetings and survey testing, the DCSD Community Survey was distributed in November and December 2016 to parents and guardians of current DCSD students, DCSD employees, high school students, graduating seniors, and a random sampling of 1,600 community members.
