Vote for more progress
After all three of my children were hurt by the “reforms” in Douglas County Schools from 2010-18, I joined the grassroots effort to elect our current board members in 2015 and 2017. In the short months since January 2018, when David Ray was elected chair, the board of education has hired a permanent superintendent and passed the first local school funding initiative in 12 years. Teacher pay is up, turnover is down and student test scores are up. But the board needs more time to repair the extensive damage done by reform.
Having attended every forum this fall, I am convinced that Susan Meek and Elizabeth Hanson will keep the best needs of our children and evidence-based best practices in mind when making decisions. Please vote Meek, Hanson and re-elect Ray to keep the positive momentum going in Douglas County School District. Ballots are due by 7 p.m. Nov. 5.
