Dear David Douglas Families and Community,
I am truly honored to lead David Douglas High School as we re-enter classrooms where students and staff can engage in activities and exchange ideas to constantly challenge and inspire our students. My goal is to provide the necessary educational resources to prepare all students for their post-secondary destinations. I welcome and encourage your positive participation in your student’s education. I look forward to working with you and your students.
DDHS’s incredible staff continues to work hard to create an inclusive learning environment so that ALL students feel welcome. Our goal is to meet the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially. In order to accomplish this, we must connect the school with communities and collaborate regarding parent and teacher expectations. Through collaboration, hard work and strong parental and community partnership, David Douglas can maintain its mission, “A place where connections are made.” We are continuing to research ways to engage in critical dialogue with instructors and other stakeholders.
David Douglas High School will allow students and staff to become creative, innovative and competitive in a global society. Our fantastic team is preparing for students to return. Custodians, maintenance, and groundskeepers have spent months fine tuning and grooming our facilities. By providing equal access to all educational resources for all learners, we can encourage students to extend their essential skills beyond high school. If we collaborate as educational stakeholders, I’m encouraged that David Douglas High School will continue and respond to challenges as they arise.
Youth Truth Survey
Dear David Douglas Parent or Guardian,
I am writing to ask for ~15 minutes of your time to complete an online survey that will help us improve your child’s school. We have asked YouthTruth – a nonprofit organization that supports hundreds of schools and districts across the county – to conduct an anonymous survey on our behalf.
Please take the survey before it closes at midnight on December 17th, by clicking this link: ytsurvey.org/ddsdfamily21
- The survey needs to be completed in one sitting.
- We ask that one member of each household fill out the survey.
- If you have more than one child who attends the same school, you may respond to the survey multiple times – one time per child.
- If you write any comments, please do not include your name or anything else that might identify you. Your responses are anonymous, and they will be combined with the responses of other parents and guardians before being shared back with school and district leadership.
We sincerely thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. Your response is incredibly valuable to us.
