The Douglas County School District (DCSD) will be closed today (Tuesday, January 22), due to blowing snow, wind chill and a blizzard warning affecting a portion of the county, as weather conditions vary across DCSD’s 850+ square miles. All before and after school activities are also cancelled. Tonight’s DCSD Board of Education meeting has been rescheduled for Thursday, January 24. Safety is a top priority. For this reason, our snow team is continuing to monitor the storm. We will provide any updates on our website (www.dcsdk12.org), social media and on our mobile app.

We are a nurturing learning environment preparing future leaders for a globally connected, interdependent world.

We want to make a difference in the lives of our students.
We want them to learn how to make a difference in their own lives and to make a difference in the lives of others. 


The American educational system is currently deconstructing its structures and systems of old, and educational reform is moving at a faster pace than ever before in history. The exponential growth of new technologies has opened up a world of learning possibilities, and we have the exciting opportunity to embrace, support, and validate new and powerful ideas for sustainable learning. We are taking the lead in implementing systems and practices to protect and grow the most valuable resource in our country…our youth.
  • We will help our students develop a deep understanding of self, the world, and current opportunities to impact positive change–all aligning with strengths and passions.
  • We will engage students in learning and creating across the day as they develop important skills–leadership, initiative, innovation–all skills that align with entrepreneurial thinking.
  • We will meet the unique needs of each child as we personalize learning and collaboratively set goals and create action plans with students based on personal data, interest, and learning styles.
