On June 22, 2021 the Board of Education passed a Resolution to extend the MBOC beyond the original sunset date of December 31, 2022, until such time as the Bond projects and programs are completed.

Mill Bond Oversight Ad Hoc Committee

In November 2018, voters approved additional funding for Douglas County School District (DCSD) in the form of a $40 million Mill Levy Override and a $250 million Bond Measure. In return, DCSD promised to create a Mill and Bond Oversight Committee that will help ensure that each dollar is spent as outlined on the ballot.
