The Douglas County Federation (DCF) is proud to offer FREE classes to Douglas County parents who wish to guide their children to develop a better understanding of curriculum and study skills in math and reading.
The Douglas County Board of Education has made unnecessary cuts to our classrooms, eliminated the bargaining agreement that placed a cap on total class size and are implementing reforms in our schools that lack any evidence of research. Please sign our petition to tell the Board you want them to start focusing on our students, attracting and retaining the best teachers and to keep public education at the heart of their decisions. Students are our future, and teachers make the difference.
