Introducing the 2019 Apple Award Representatives!
The Foundation for Douglas County Schools is pleased to announce the 2019 Apple Award Representatives . We received nearly 4,000 nominations that speak to the incredible talent and impact of the DCSD family.

Representatives have been selected by their school or department for their excellence and dedication in service to our students. We congratulate each of them for this incredible honor.

Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations and to the many, many staff making a difference every day for our students. You can read and watch some of these amazing testimonials about our staff  here .

Next, a committee of individuals across DCSD assembled by the Foundation will select the 2019 Apple Award finalists. These honorees will be announced at the Apple Awards Reveal Party on Saturday, April 6 at the Vehicle Vault in Parker.
