Let’s rebuild DCSD

After eight years of unnecessary school reforms and underfunding, the time has come for the voters of Douglas County to once again show their support for public education. We can accomplish this by actually funding our district. The time has come to move forward with our new board of education and superintendent and rebuild our school district.

As a longtime resident of Douglas County, whose children are graduates of DCSD, I believe it is time to fund the proven educational programs that have been lost. It is time to pay our teachers, para professionals, bus drivers and all the other support personnel a competitive wage. It is time to tackle the ever-growing list of high-priority repairs, expansions and deferred maintenance. It is time to fund what we say we value. It is time to support a bond and mill levy override for the benefit of our current and future students and for the continued success of our schools and communities.

Today’s students are our future and their educations should be one of our highest priorities. Let’s prove it to them.
