Board of Education Meeting Schedule 2018-2019

The Douglas County Board of Education is the policy-making body of the school district. Its decisions guide the public education of the students in our community.

This high-level guidance is encapsulated in the District’s Vision Statement, approved by the Board of Education on May 10, 2016.

The Douglas County School District strives to maximize the potential of every student to pursue his or her chosen endeavor in society, including but not limited to postsecondary education, career, or military service.

Role of the Board of Education
State law sets the powers and duties of the Board of Education. It is responsible for educational planning and evaluation, staffing and appraisal, school facilities, financial resources and communication. The Board acts as a court of appeal for staff members, students and the public on issues involving board policy or implementation of that policy. 

It is the job of the Superintendent and the District's administrative team and staff to effectively execute the policies of the Board.

The seven members of the Board of Education are elected to staggered, four-year terms at regular biennial school elections, which are held on the first Tuesday (after the first Monday) in November of each odd-numbered year.

Board members represent one of the seven director districts and are elected at-large. To be eligible for election, a school board candidate must be at least 18 years of age, a 12-month resident and registered voter of the District, a resident of the director district in which he/she represents, and have no direct or indirect interest in District contracts.
