Dear Douglas County School District Families,

Thank you to the candidates and their volunteers who dedicated many hours over the past few months running for the Douglas County School District Board of Education. The fact that each one of these individuals wanted to serve the children, families, and staff of this community is inspiring and appreciated.

We want to welcome the new Board members who were elected last night: Becky Myers, Mike Peterson, Christy Williams, and Kaylee Winegar. Douglas County Government will certify the election results in the coming weeks. Per state statute, Board members will be sworn into office following certification, and the swearing-in is currently scheduled to take place at the November 30 Board meeting.

We also want to provide our gratitude to our soon-to-be outgoing Board members: Christina Ciancio-Schor, Anthony Graziano, Krista Holtzmann, and Kevin Leung. They have dedicated hundreds of volunteer hours to our amazing school district over the past four years and we are sincerely grateful for their service.

And last, but certainly not least, thank you to our Board members who will continue on with us: Elizabeth Hanson, Susan Meek, and David Ray. We look forward to continuing to work with you to serve the 64,000 students of DCSD.

Over the coming weeks, we will be working with our new Board members to help orient them and welcome them to their new roles. I am confident that our new Board of Education, staff, families, and community will be able to come together to continue the great mission of this school district.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership. We look forward to working with our School Board and welcoming our new directors. DCSD is a fantastic school district and we will continue to strive for excellence together!

Sincerely,

Corey Wise
Superintendent
Douglas County School District
