Superintendent's Message

A Message from Superintendent Alan J. Kerr:

Welcome to the Douglas School District and our website. It is an honor and privilege to serve as superintendent of the Douglas School District.  In the Douglas School District, we take pride in the small family atmosphere we provide for our students. Our district is committed to bringing out the best in each and every child and recognizes that strong schools are the foundation of a strong community.


This is going to be an exciting and wonderful year at Douglas School District.  We are launching our new strategic plan, which will guide our work and decisions in the years to come.  It will help us to focus directly on accomplishing our mission:  “Prepare all students to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world”.


Here at Douglas, you will find a school community - teachers, students, administrators, board members and volunteers - who have a great deal of pride in their schools. The cornerstone of our success is working together with community partners at our side, to ensure each student is inspired to reach their full potential. 


I invite you to join our journey toward excellence. If you have any questions, or if we can be of assistance, please feel free to call us at 605-923-0000.
