Rewarding excellence and attracting the best

Douglas County School District is dedicated to attracting and retaining the best employees, by paying professional salaries and rewarding those who are great at what they do.

While most school districts are constrained by antiquated pay systems, our innovative pay for performance model provides us the opportunity to celebrate effectiveness with increases in compensation in a variety of methods.


DCSD has built an entire integrated system, created to benefit and support our employees.

In addition to providing opportunities for financial reward, we want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to look forward at which career pathways they would like to pursue and what professional development they’ll need to accomplish these dreams.

Our goal in the Douglas County School District is to ensure our students have what they need to compete on a world stage by helping our employees become more effective and rewarding them when they are.
