Principal’s Message

May 27, 2022

Dear David Douglas High School Families,

Last November and December, we launched our fourth annual YouthTruth survey in partnership with YouthTruth, a national nonprofit that helps districts improve their school climate and culture. We heard from you, our students and families, about how we’re doing and how we can improve. I wanted to sincerely thank you again for your participation. We have explored the data and are working to strategically use the feedback to improve our school. 

As a way to improve our school, we shared with you earlier in the month that we are focusing on strengthening relationships between staff and students. To improve this at David Douglas High School, we will build the capacity to implement restorative practices by having all faculty participate in professional learning. I want to communicate another step we are currently planning to do with your feedback to improve our school.

Based on this data, another area we are focusing on is to increase the number of students who report that they feel DDHS has helped them understand the steps they need to take in order to have the career that they want. We are looking to improve our school by: 

  • Including a Career Center spotlight in the weekly student and family communication
  • Students will address and plan to achieve career goals by using DDHS Promotion Application in Advisory

Together, we are ensuring that all students at David Douglas High School are inspired and challenged to learn, grow and thrive to their fullest potential. I truly believe that our ability to be effective is only as great as our ability to give and receive feedback. Thank you for engaging in this feedback process with us as we can’t do it without you! We look forward to communicating with you the progress we are making in these focus areas and action steps next fall.
