DCSD encourages kids to walk or bike to school, because it: 

  • Develops healthy habits
  • Helps reduce traffic congestion at schools
  • Improves the environment
  • Is Fun!

Student safety is our first priority, including when students are on their way to and from school. We encourage students to walk or ride in groups and to use safe routes.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions that we recieve most often.

Q. Am I protected from liability while doing my job?

A. As a District employee, you are covered by the District's liability insurance program against civil liability claims as long as you are acting within the scope of your duties. Similar to other Governmental Entities, the School District has immunity from most lawsuits under the terms of the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act.

Q. Does the District pay the medical costs when a student gets hurt at school?

A. The District does not purchase, or have in place, any medical insurance to cover injuries to students, whether incurred at school or while on activity trips.

Q. What if I get hurt on the job? What do I do?

A. If you get hurt, even if it is a minor injury, you need to immediately report the injury to your supervisor and complete an Employee Injury/Illness Report Form, which is available from your supervisor or on our website.
