Help Guide the Board of Education - Serve on the DAC!
PSD's District Accountability Committee (DAC) has several representative seats open for the 2018-19 school year. The DAC is made up of parent and school representatives who work together to offer recommendations about the district's spending priorities, improvement plan, and charter schools to the PSD Board of Education.
The DAC is looking for:
• An Instructional Paraprofessional working in PSD
• A parent of a high school student
• A person who can represent the diversity within PSD
• A parent of a child supported by Integrated Services
• A parent of an English language learner student in the district
The committee meets once per month, typically on the third Wednesday, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., in the board room at the Johannsen Support Services Center, 2407 LaPorte Ave.
People interested in serving on the DAC should contact PSD Curriculum Director Robert Beauchamp at 970-490-3667 or email@example.com or visit the DAC web page.

Start Time Survey available through September
A survey, emailed to parents, staff, high school students and community members, will be available throughout September. Survey questions will address the four proposed start time scenarios and provide areas for general comments regarding start times.
If you plan to attend a community forum, you may want to consider waiting until after the event to fill out the survey. This will allow you to provide PSD with the most informed answers.
