Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year DCSD, and welcome to your union!
We are looking forward to another exciting year, with school funding being a primary focus of the fall along with professional development and advocacy for public education, both locally and nationally.
Over the last few months we have seen educators and school district employees rising in record numbers in with a national cry of #RedForEd. Educators have taken their voice to the streets, the national media, and state capitols across the country asking that our elected officials invest in public education, invest in educators, and invest in our students.
On April 26th, 2018, Douglas County educators came together at the Colorado State Capitol, and we will continue to advocate together as #RedForEd continues. There are so many ways to get involved in this movement, be it talking to your neighbors, phone banking community members, or activating your colleagues to join us. There is a place for everyone in our DCF family.
Let us know what you would love to do – we are always making space for new leaders and activists in our union.
As you get settled into the new year, do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
We know that getting the year off on the right foot sets the tone for your whole year, and we are here to support you.
Teachers everywhere are ready to take back our profession, and together we are doing that. Please encourage your colleagues to join us and become a member of the Douglas County Federation. Together we can accomplish things we could never accomplish alone.
