DCSS Parent Support Portal
Douglas County School System ( DCSS) is committed to providing and supporting continuity in learning for all of our students. This website has been organized to provide parents, guardians & caregivers online resources, as well as suggested off-line activities to support student learning from home.
The resources provided on this website are to help engage students in continued learning but will not be submitted to teachers for assignments or for feedback. Teachers will communicate with your student with course specific information and learning opportunities.
Many of the online resources are embedded within ClassLink students' online single sign on, however, some resources suggested below are available free of charge on the web and may require a student to create an account. Please make sure your parents/guardians approve your use of these educational resources before creating an account.
