Join our Community Conversations

In 2019, we held a series of community conversations that we called ‘Your Voice Matters.’ We wanted to hear your priorities for spending new state funding from what was called the Student Investment Account (SIA).

Through surveys and forums you talked to us, and we heard you, some 3,150 voices strong. Based on your feedback, with those funds we prioritized more adults in classrooms; well-rounded education; and increased social, emotional and behavioral support.

The COVID-19 pandemic began soon after this work concluded. Today, as we emerge from this shared traumatic experience, we again need to hear your voices. We have been using the SIA funds as you prioritized, but now we want to go deeper.

We want to return to those community conversations and again hear your priorities. The Oregon Department of Education has six initiatives that we are being asked to integrate and align together so that all are moving forward as one Integrated Plan. These initiatives are:

  • Student Investment Account (student mental/emotional health; reduce academic disparities)
  • High School Success (improved grad rates, equitable access, college/career readiness)
  • Continuous Improvement Plan (schools always getting better)
  • Career and Technical Education (federal funds for improved student academic knowledge/technical skills)
  • Every Day Matters (student attendance)
  • Early Indicator Intervention Systems (educators constantly engaged in improving systems for student interventions)

How do we get better at all of these initiatives, while also staying true to our own two foundational plans – our Strategic Plan and our Equity Plan? The intent is to align these initiatives for Student Success with the following four goals:

  • Equity Advanced
  • Engaged Community
  • Well-Rounded Education
  • Strengthened Systems and Capacity

So tell us: How are we doing? What can we do better? What is your experience with the David Douglas School District? Your Voice is Always Heard. And we need to hear it again now.

One Chip Challenge

Hello Floyd Light Community, 

The One Chip Challenge has been seen in our school. We are seeing multiple students going to the health room with stomach pain or painful burning mouths. More information can be found on the website. Floyd Light will confiscate the chips if they are found on campus. As a reminder, students are not allowed to share food/drinks on campus. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Pease or Ms. Nguyen.

Thank you for your support. 

Proposed David Douglas School Bond

Hello David Douglas Community,

We are reaching out with hope that the new school year is going well for you.

As many are aware, the David Douglas School Board has placed a $140 million construction bond measure on the Nov. 8, 2022 election ballot. If approved by voters, this bond measure would allow for safety and security improvements at every school, repairs of aging infrastructure at our buildings, investments in expanded opportunities for preschool and early learning, and construction of a new Futures Career Center at David Douglas High School. Passage of the bond would also bring in an additional $8 million matching grant from the State of Oregon.

We want you to know about our November 2022 Bond Measure website. You will find much more information about our bond measure at this website, including a complete summary of the proposed bond projects, a description of the public process that led to the development of the bond measure, a detailed list of all the proposed bond projects, a document describing what a school construction bond measure is, information about our last bond measure passed in 2012, and more.

This website will be updated with additional information between now and the Nov. 8 election day. Please come back to it from time to time if you, your neighbors or others want information about the bond measure.

Meanwhile, we encourage all who are eligible to vote to make sure that you are registered to vote prior to election day. The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 18.
