    About DCSD

    Aerial Carson ValleyThe Valley is bordered on the west by the Carson Range of the Sierra Nevada with peaks reaching 11,000 feet above sea level, and by the Pinenut Mountains on the east rising to 9,400 feet.

    Our district serves the communities of Gardnerville, Minden, Genoa and parts of Lake Tahoe (from Glenbrook to Stateline.)

    Our schools provide over 5,400 students with a nurturing and rigorous learning environment. Douglas County students are successful because our employees, parents, and community work together to provide a quality education.
