I’m so proud and impressed with the talent throughout this school district.

Douglas County School District has always been a leader. Today, however, our teachers, support staff and principals are going further; reinventing American Education.

They have thought differently to meet the needs of their students. Despite numerous hurdles, including the recession and the onerous impact of federal and state mandates, our teachers are pioneering the way; reinventing their classrooms.

They are leaders, not just in this district but in this country.

Staff Appreciation Week is a small token of our thanks. I am so proud to be part of this District, because of the dedicated staff members who make it great.
