The following are the power point presentations that are taught by uniformed deputies and officers in all of the traditional middle schools, and several charter schools located in Douglas County as a part of the Y.E.S.S. Middle School Program. In 2012 the Sheriff’s Office has partnered with all three local Police Departments in the County, Castle Rock Police Department, Parker Police Department and Lone Tree Police Department. This is a joint venture between all of our agencies to ensure that all middle school students and a lot of elementary students receive this amazing program.
Our program is currently being researched to prove that we use both evidence and research based strategies in developing and presenting our program to students in Douglas County. This is being done in partnership with the Douglas County School District and RMC Research Corporation in Denver. In the first year we were able to show that we are meeting most of our outcomes. RMC Research discerned that, based on data and random surveys, students displayed increases in developmental assets, our program implementation was consistent across the schools that we teach in, building level analysis of other social norms indicators favored schools where Y.E.S.S. is being taught, our lesson delivery was direct and of high quality, our programming is supplemented with activities outside the classroom, students consistently identified what they learned through the program and student reports about the program were overwhelmingly positive. We can’t take all of the credit for all of these great results, we know there are fantastic students and faculty in Douglas County. It does let us know however that we are helping, reducing risky behavior, increasing student life skills and developing trusted and credible relationships with the students, faculty and staff within the Douglas County School District.
It is an honor and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve the youth of our community and their families.
