One out of every four students in the David Douglas School District proudly claims Hispanic/Latinx heritage. As we do with all students, we treasure and celebrate these students every day.

From Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, we get to give special recognition as the nation celebrates National Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month. Our Latinx students and families are woven into the richly diverse fabric of the David Douglas School District, the State of Oregon, the nation and the world. Within Oregon, David Douglas is a uniquely diverse school district, where more than 75 different languages are spoken by our families as their first language, and where large, vibrant communities from many ethnicities and cultures thrive and are welcomed.
