Greetings from DCF President Kevin DiPasquale!

Fresh out of the classroom, with over 25 years of teaching experience, gives me a fresh perspective to lead Douglas County Federation. I am excited for staff and students to be back to school - in person.  We know that making connections with others makes the school experience better for everyone involved; especially students.

‘Back to school’ like never before

In her September New York Times column, AFT President Randi Weingarten says that going back to school has never looked like it does now. Weingarten explains that because of President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus, which has been chaotic, contradictory and inept, and the lack of federal guidance and funding, we’re seeing a patchwork of school reopening plans across the country.

Post Graduation Guidance and Preparation

Douglas County School District (DCSD) has committed to “increase stakeholder awareness of all post-graduate opportunities” and “enhance and increase sustainable, quality educational pathway opportunities for all students.” Post-graduation guidance and preparation have become increasingly important as the changing labor market requires more than just high-quality instruction.
