School District Seeks Volunteers For Mill Bond Oversight Committee

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) is seeking volunteers to fill six empty seats on the District’s Mill Bond Oversight Ad Hoc Committee (MBOC).

The MBOC is currently accepting applications for:

One (1) Safety and Security Representative
One (1) Licensed Educator-Secondary Representative
Two (2) Parent/Community Members Region: Highlands Ranch
One (1) Licensed Educator-Elementary Representative
One (1) District Accountability Committee Representative to serve on the MBOC

The committee was formed in 2018 when voters approved a $40 million mil levy override (MLO) and a $250 million bond measure. The MBOC is tasked with ensuring that each dollar is spent as outlined on the ballot.

The DCSD, through the Mill Bond Exploratory Ad Hoc Committee (MBEC) is exploring the needs of the district, both ongoing operational and capital needs as well as assessing the feasibility of a successful MLO and/or bond issue for the upcoming November ballot.

Last month, newly appointed Douglas County School District (DCSD) Superintendent Erin Kane presented her initial plans for the District. In addition to her intent for outreach, listening, bridging the community divide and establishing a climate and culture, Kane listed the need to prepare a recommendation to the DCSD Board for a potential bond/MLO initiative that would appear on the upcoming November 2022 ballot.

In the plan Kane presented to the DCSD Board of Education, she announced an intention to begin community outreach polling this month with a recommendation to the BOE in partnership with the MBEC by June.
