From Challenge to Triumph: Douglas County's Strategic Funding Victory
This session examines Douglas County School District’s successful passage of a critical Mill Levy Override in 2023, following an unsuccessful attempt in the previous year. With significant challenges, including unprecedented property tax increases, the district enhanced its strategic approach by further intensifying community engagement and developing a dedicated website to inform the community about its funding challenges. Learn how these efforts communicated the essential need to invest in teacher and staff pay, ultimately securing community approval. 

Presenters: Amanda Kujawa, Douglas County School District; Beth Egan, Finalsite
