We are making some changes to our video conferencing tool, Zoom, in order to provide an even higher level of security for our students and staff. Effective tomorrow, Friday, September 18, all students will need to authenticate to their DNCOE Zoom account using the Single Sign-On (SSO) option with their District-provided @mydnschools.org email address. When your students attempt to join their Zoom classes they may now be prompted to log in - make sure they type in "DNCOE" for the domain, then they'll be directed to authenticate using their existing student email address and password.
As always our IT Department is here to help. Should you experience any issues please call our Family Support Hotline at 707-464-7005. We are still experiencing very high call volumes, so if we don't answer immediately please leave a clear message on how to reach you, and we'll get back to you just as soon as possible. That support number again, 707-464-7005.
Thank you so much for your support and understanding as we continue to ensure the best and most secure experience is being provided for your students.

Mr. Jeff Slayton
Dear Castle Rock families,
With the second term well under way, we want to thank everyone for your continued support of our students, teachers, and school as we collectively strive to provide optimal opportunities for learning each and every day.
Administration and faculty value the important contributions families make towards a student’s success in school; there is no question that success in school starts at home. Families are the most significant influence in a child’s education. Families model both verbal and non-verbal language in front of their children. One of the great hallmarks of a great school is the partnership between the school and families who work together for the best interest of all Castle Rock students.
We’ve identified mathematics assessment, intervention and instruction as three areas that provide opportunities to grow. The California Assessment of Student performance and progress (CAASPP) website provides support in these areas. Our students will participate in training, practice, and eventually will take the interim assessment as a lead up to the end of year state testing that happens each May.
To help support this process, teachers are providing “office hours” to help initiate assessment and help students navigate the curriculum they are struggling to understand. To learn more about office hours, contact your support teacher for more information.
Have a great March/April and please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns 464-0390.
“Tough players win.”
Jeff Slayton, Principal
Castle Rock Charter School
