Special Education Task Force

Special Education
Survey Results

Douglas County School District (DCSD) educators, special education staff members and parents/guardians of students who attended a DCSD school during the 2017-18 school year were asked to complete a survey on DCSD's special education services. The purpose of this survey was for the DCSD Board of Education to learn more about parent and educator perceptions of, and experiences with, district special education services in the 2017-18 school year.
