We envision a future where …
Each child in Douglas County will receive effective and meaningful support to achieve economic and social success by graduating high school, completing post–secondary education and/or entering a career.
DCPSS exists to facilitate the transformation of the way we work together collectively to accomplish common goals.
Data indicates that …
Of 100 students in Douglas County, 67 will graduate high school, 39 of those 67 graduates will begin college and less than 20 will end up with a degree or community college credential.
We plan to move from Isolation to Collective Impact
All communities in Douglas County have a variety of programs that serve our children at various points in their lives. Generally, these programs are not organized around a similar set of data or a shared commitment to work together to define the goals, actions, and outcomes and shared accountability.
