Athletics is an amazing way for our students to learn. From the thrill of victory to the agony of defeat, the lessons taught by sports make our kids more resilient, collaborative and healthy. Athletics offer daily opportunities for kids to learn 21st century skills, which makes them better students in the classroom and more prepared for whichever college or career they choose in the future. Student-athletes are students first. Participation in sports is a privilege. We expect all of our student-athletes to abide by the academic and athletic rules set by their schools and the organizations we are affiliated with.

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.
