"Empowering each other to Pioneer a better tomorrow."

We live this mission by providing rigorous, differentiated instruction based upon real-life learning opportunities for all students. We create a safe learning environment where inclusion is the norm and acceptance is practiced daily through rich learning experiences. These include:

  • Small class sizes which are currently averaging between 19 in the primary and 23 in intermediate grades.

  • W.i.N-”What I Need”-Each day our students have 30 minutes of differentiated learning enrichments and interventions as our teachers, learning specialists and instructional assistants base groups upon data for maximum growth and achievement.

  • Extracurricular activities such as Student Council, Rock Band, Choir, Book Club, Running clubs and much more.

  • Specials which include Physical Education, STEAL (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Literacy), Library and Music.

  • School Based Agriculture in Education with chickens, hydroponics, gardening, and outdoor classrooms and outdoor field trips.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records at this link ( Douglas County School District Transcripts and Records Requests ).
