High School


Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! It was a great pleasure to see your child and you can be assured that the staff, at CSDB, are eager to get another successful year started!

We will be continuing our Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program. PBIS is a critical part of the success for students, and we want to partner with you to assist your child in acquiring the necessary skill set that will help them be successful. We encourage all students to embrace our commitment to demonstrating Positive Attitude, Respect, Independence, Determination and Excellence (PRIDE). I look forward to seeing your child be recognized for their efforts.

We have Accountability meetings on the 1st Wednesday of every month from 5-6:30pm and it is very important you and your child are fully informed regarding CSDB’s Strategic Plan goals.
If we can be of assistance to you, please call or come by the office. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you. Together, we can be the strong team your child needs.

If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me or your child’s advocate. It is very important you and your child are fully informed regarding expectations related to appropriate behavior, for a safe and productive school year.

If you would like to be involved at CSDB, please consider volunteering, participating in community events or attending one or more of our parent group meetings.

We thank you for your support.

On April 13, ASL Honor Society (ASLHS) at Air Academy High School hosted the ASL Event for our high school students at Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind. They focused on critical thinking, Deaf History, and fractions and they also used Clerc and Gallaudet’s “diary” as basic foundation for Breakout Activity and ASL video signed by one of ASLHS students. They enjoyed the challenge and team effort.
