Transparency requires that the community have easy access to information of public interest. This includes the academic performance of schools (e.g. test data) and financial and policy documents. CEPS aims to make such available to the citizens of Douglas County.
The Douglas County School System is unique in offering magnet programs at all five high schools, allowing for school choice for qualified students. We believe the competition for students between schools that this policy breeds will increase the quality of the schools only if there is transparency in student achievement data. So, we have provided data on AP and IB exam scores to help middle school parents and students make more informed choices.
