Charlotte has been selected for the All-State Mixed Choir. She will be singing under the direction of Dr. Jeffery Douma, a Professor of Conducting at Yale University and the founding conductor of Yale Choral Artists, one of the best professional choirs in the country.

District News

While the holidays are often a joyous time with friends and family, we know that they can also be stressful, not just for adults, but for children too.

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.
