myDCSD Funding Needs

Douglas County School District is home to 64,000 students who attend 89 public schools. Covering 850 total square miles, our school district is the third-largest in Colorado. We have a lot to celebrate in DCSD!

Like many school districts across our state and country, DCSD faces many funding challenges. We must address funding needs to ensure that each and every one of our students continues to have access to the best possible public education within safe and comfortable learning environments.
