In addition to the annual pressure of gift giving, family gathering and travel, the holidays can trigger memories of the loss of loved ones and other traumatic events.

On Monday, December 4, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted unanimously (with six voting members) to approve a resolution to rescind the Choice Scholarship Program. The Resolution outlines three steps to this revocation: 1) Rescind the Choice Scholarship Program, 2) Repeal all district policies specifically related to the Choice Scholarship Program and the School Choice Grant Program, 3) Direct the Board President and/or Interim Superintendent to end the litigation challenging the Choice Scholarship Program in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The resolution takes effect immediately.
