Principal's Message

Welcome To Mountain View Elementary School!

Mountain View is a school that focuses on primary learning while educating the whole child.  The moment you walk through our doors you will notice that there is a whole lot of learning going on. Students are provided many opportunities to own their learning by participating in a variety of interest groups that support their love for inquiry. Along with self-discovery, students work hard at being responsible, respectful and safe. Additionally, Mountain View has a strong culture and community. We have enduring relationships among students, staff, families and our community.  MVE is a safe place where everyone is supported and encouraged to be their very best. While we are centered around student learning, there isn’t one place in MVE where students, staff and parents aren’t having fun. --Millie Grotts, Principal

Mill levy override/bond information

Dear Mountain View Elementary Community, 


On August 21, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted to place a $40 million Mill Levy Override (MLO) and $250 million no-new-taxes Bond on the 2018 ballot. Unlike our neighboring school districts, Douglas County School District has not passed a MLO or Bond since 2006.


If passed by voters, these new funds would be used at our school to:


  • Increase teacher and staff pay

  • Add counselors for our students

  • Enhance safety and security systems

  • Make much needed repairs and upgrades to our building

    • Install new generator for emergency systems

    • Replace and upgrade heating and cooling systems and components

    • Replace and upgrade fire alarm system

    • Repair roofing


Douglas County School District would also evaluate our building for additional needed repairs that would make our learning environments as safe and productive as possible for our students.


New MLO/Bond funding would also be used to upgrade information technology (such as classroom computers) and transportation (such as aging buses), and offer more student programming opportunities, including additional career and technical education options.


The average Douglas County homeowner, with a home valued at $470,000, will pay an additional $17.33 per month ($208 per year) if both measures are approved. If neither are approved, the average homeowner would see their school property tax bill decrease by approximately $67 in 2019.


You can read more about Douglas County School District’s funding challenges at www.dcsdk12.org/funding.


Thank you for continuing to be an engaged and informed member of our school community!


Sincerely,



Mildred Grotts
Principal
