THE PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

The Principal Chronicles continue ... This past week I have been in California for the MLS Combine. My job has essentially been team mom. Getting 71 college-aged men to and from three different games as well as draft. Funny thing is, it's basically exactly like my job at school just the people are bigger. It's been a fun week but I am fully ready to go home and get back to school. I miss the staff, community, and especially the kids.

I'll be back in action and probably a lot more interesting and witty next week when I return. Until next time when the Principal Chronicles continue ...

The top two-percent of female athletes in Douglas County School District (DCSD) were honored at the annual Girls and Women in Sports Luncheon last week at Chaparral High School. This year represented the 30th national celebration of Girls and Women in Sports Day, created to encourage and promote the participation of girls in athletics. The girls who were honored were selected by their school’s coaches, athletic directors and principals for their outstanding achievements.

Superintendent Search text based logo

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
