School Capacity and Boundary Analysis

School Boundary Capacity Analysis Survey

School Capacity and Boundary Analysis

Communities within the Douglas County School District (DCSD) continue to grow, with some areas developing faster than others. With this in mind, DCSD wants to ensure we are utilizing each of our school buildings to their optimum capacity, yet minimizing the overcrowding that is currently happening or is anticipated to happen in some of our schools. The DCSD Board of Education and Long Range Planning Committee are considering several options to address overcrowding, plan for future growth, and ensure that each of our 64,000 students has access to comfortable and effective learning environments while continuing to be responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) wants to ensure we are:

  • Utilizing each of our school buildings to full capacity
  • Minimizing overcrowding
  • Providing all students with comfortable, effective learning environments
  • Continuing to be responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars

More information about this survey and the School Boundary and Capacity Analysis can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions below and within the survey results. If you have a question that is not addressed on this webpage, please contact the DCSD Planning Department at  [email protected]

Please see the 2019 survey results here.

In late 2019, the School Capacity and Boundary Analysis survey was utilized as a method to gather input from our community. None of the scenarios in the survey will be implemented without research (feasibility, cost analysis, minimizing the impact on students and families, etc.), outreach opportunities (including community meetings), and approval from the DCSD Board of Education. Many items concerning this project are on hold until restrictions are lifted based on COVID-19. DCSD is currently focusing on the most urgent needs and scenarios.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records at this link ( Douglas County School District Transcripts and Records Requests ).
