It’s back to school time again, already! Can you believe how fast the summer seems to go? Most kids are back in school and starting to learn all those new subjects for this school year. Kids in Douglas County Schools may have started early, but not as early as they used to.
Once upon a time, not that long ago, Douglas County was the fastest growing area in the country. With that rapid growth, there was a plan and a need to accommodate the elementary schools with the expanding population. So many new residents moving to Douglas County, and a large portion of them into Highlands Ranch, that careful planning needed to take place in order to manage the students along with the budget for new school buildings. Thus was the start of the Douglas County School track system.
Many parts of Douglas County continue to see growth, however that huge rush of population took place some years back and now we have leveled out to a more stable cycle. This is what the planners back then anticipated. Smart people. So now, the use of a track system in most of the elementary schools has given way to the more traditional school year.
There are some Douglas County schools that are on more of a modified calendar and many on a conventional calendar. If you’re curious which, the Douglas County school district puts out a school calendar choice list so you can know what your school, or the school you will be heading to, will plan for the year. Just click the link in the school’s choice column to see the calendar for the year. If you are planning a move within Douglas County or to Douglas County, hopefully this list can help with student planning.
