Grant delivers behavioral health services to students

The Ford Family Foundation has awarded a $150,000 grant to the Douglas Education Service District and Douglas County school districts for a program that aims to help students grades K-3 whose behavior disrupts classroom learning.     

The districts helped design a new Ready, Set, Learn program, which the Douglas ESD will operate. The program deploys a team of behavior specialists to work with families, students and schools.

Wanted: Staff input on facilities study

The Douglas Education Service District is working on a facilities study as we ponder the future of our workspaces in our central office and annex. Staff feedback is needed! Don't be shy about coming forward to say what does and doesn't work for you on our current building infrastructure, parking, allocation of space, etc. Two more meetings are set to gather input, both in the Evergreen Room at 1871 N.E. Stephens Street. Plan to attend either at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, or at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28.
