Within-District forms will be available by Dec 29.  We will begin accepting HP & OE requests (within district students only) on January 3 (Jan 31 deadline)

Open Enrollment (into-district students) will be available by the last week of February.  We will begin accepting OE requests on March 1 (April 1 deadline)

Please note:

Requests must be submitted to the District Office (640 'A' Street) either by personal delivery, fax, email or regular mail.  

Forms cannot be turned in at school sites nor may building employees accept forms to submit.  Also, early or late applications will not be accepted.

Biggest change:  Within-District Space Availability/Exchange requests will not have to reapply to continue at the same school provided they have not moved from the address of the original approval.  Inter-District transfer students must still reapply.

Should a student's attendance and or behavior fail to meet minimum standards (90%), buildings do have the ability to revoke the student's transfer.

   Douglas Gardens Elementary leadership team and staff invested significant time during the 2015-2016 school year crafting a comprehensive achievement plan (CAP) for the school. The CAP is a plan that defines targeted work to raise achievement for all students. The CAP defines seven important objectives that the school will focus on over the next three school years. It is aimed at measurable goals, and it is monitored throughout the year. A copy of the Douglas Gardens' CAP is uploaded to the school website in PDF format for all stakeholders (staff, students, parents, family members, and district personnel) to review. Click on the link below for a copy of the CAP.
