 The Douglas County Board of Education is the policy-making body of the school district. Its decisions guide the public education of the students in our community.

This high-level guidance is encapsulated in the District’s Vision Statement, approved by the Board of Education on May 10, 2016.

The Douglas County School District strives to maximize the potential of every student to pursue his or her chosen endeavor in society, including but not limited to postsecondary education, career, or military service.

Role of the Board of Education
State law sets the powers and duties of the Board of Education. It is responsible for educational planning and evaluation, staffing and appraisal, school facilities, financial resources and communication. The Board acts as a court of appeal for staff members, students and the public on issues involving board policy or implementation of that policy. 

It is the job of the Superintendent and the District's administrative team and staff to effectively execute the policies of the Board.
