Latest Information

To Our David Douglas School District community,

Should we rebuild David Douglas High School? Should we construct a new elementary school? What major renovations should we make to our existing schools? You can help us answer these questions and others by joining our Bond Development team.

The David Douglas School District is considering placing a capital construction bond measure on the ballot, and we’re looking for your help in deciding what projects should be in it.

If you would like to serve on our Bond Development Committee, please send an email message to Richard Contreras at richard_contreras@ddsd40.org

The Bond Development Committee will meet 4-6 times this fall to decide what projects should be on the ballot for the May 17, 2022 primary election.

The Committee will include residents, District staff, Board members and consultants.

Last year, a different committee of District residents, staff and Board members developed a 10-year Long Range Facility Plan to identify and prioritize future District needs. This plan will serve as a starting point for our Bond Development Committee to create a list of projects and associated costs to present to voters next May.

The ballot measure will request the sale of General Obligation Bonds to cover the costs of the proposed projects. What is a General Obligation (G.O.) Bond? How and why are they used for major public construction projects?

Thank you,
