Welcome Back to the 2017-2018 School Year

Online Registration Information

We will be doing online registration again this year so please open the checklist below and follow the easy steps. Everything can be done online beginning August 1, 2017. If you need assistance we will be running a limited walk-in registration on August 14, 2017 from 2-5 p.m. at Dakota Ridge. If you are new to Dakota and have not registered please call 303-982-4026 after July 20th to set an appointment with a counselor.

Parents please note we do not have a supply list as high school students have such a variety of courses. We have our students attend the first purple day (August 18th) and teachers will let them know exactly what they will need and will give them several days to get their supplies. Just have your son/daughter bring a notebook and a pencil on the first day to take notes. This prevents buying excess items you son/daughter may not need if we were to put out a general list.

Summer Homework

 1:1 Chromebook Initiative

Recently, the Dakota Ridge Accountability Committee approved our school's participation in a District sponsored 1:1 Chromebook Connect Initiative (CCi). To begin the initiative in the fall, all incoming ninth graders in the 2017-18 school year will receive a new Lenovo Chromebook at the beginning of the year. They will pay a mandatory rent to own fee of $200.00 during registration and pick up their device at a special family event night. During the family event, usage expectations and support options will be shared with families and they will be given the opportunity to purchase a case and Dakota Ridge stickers to personalize their new device.

The 1:1 Chromebook Connect Initiative @ DRHS means that every student will be provided with an educational technology device to support a blended learning environment - a combination of in-person instruction and education technology which enables more personalized and customized learning opportunities.

Here are some additional FAQs about this initiative. More information will become available as we plan for this new venture for 21st century learning at Dakota Ridge.
