Choice Scholarship Legal Fund

As the Douglas County School District implements its innovative Choice Scholarship Pilot Program, the Board of Education is committed to maintaining the economic efficiency of the District, and of the pilot program itself. While the Board of Education believes that this program will operate fully within the law, it recognizes that with any bold, new initiative such as the Choice Scholarship Program, there may be challenges from those who are opposed to its implementation. In order to minimize, and, if necessary, defend against, those challenges, specialized legal representation and advice may be required. One of our guiding principles in the development of this pilot programĀ is that the District will not take funds from other District operations to pay for the unique legal work associated with this effort once it is underway.

The Board of Education has established a Legal Fund so that those who support the efforts to expand the already excellent choices for students in Douglas County can contribute in a way that will be specifically designated for the legal costs associated with the successful implementation, and, if necessary, to defend the Choice Scholarship Program in any legal proceedings that arise. Contributions to the fund may be submitted online, via PayPal. After specifying a donation amount, the donation will be added to a shopping cart. When finished, you will navigate to your shopping cart to review your donation. To complete the process, you will be asked to log into your PayPal account using your email address and password, and the donation will be processed using the bank account, debit card, or credit card that is connected to your PayPal account. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can make a donation using your checking account, debit or credit card.
