Parent Lighthouse

Parent Lighthouse/PTIB- The Parent Teacher Involvement Board (think of this group as the fun for the school) hosts fundraising events for the school such as the Fun Run and the book fair.  We also hold fun family events for the community like the annual pancake breakfast, movie nights and BINGO.  We provide support for the LPE staff such as meals for teachers during conference time, host staff events, etc.  We welcome any and all new comments and suggestions.

Parent Lighthouse/SAC- SAC, (School Accountability Committee, think of this group as the business of the school) is responsible for advising principals on budget priorities and the development of school improvement plans.  Put another way, SACs act as sounding boards for improvement strategies and how schools and district spend their money.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records at this link ( Douglas County School District Transcripts and Records Requests ).
