A Message to Families from Superintendent Dr. Robert Kobylski

Davenport Community School District Logo Davenport Families,

You have likely read some news from the State Board of Education meeting that occurred at the end of last week. On Friday afternoon, the State Board of Education voted to provide temporary oversight of the Davenport Community School District by appointing an interim (temporary) Superintendent and Chief Financial Officer.

We are still waiting on details on what this fully means, when it will be implemented, and how long this temporary supportive action will be enacted.

I want you to know that I am still your Superintendent and I am in the office, always ready to work for the betterment of our students and schools. We have made great progress over the past year as a District, and that work will continue.

Our goal remains the same: to ensure the best possible education for our students in a safe and caring environment. Please know that all DCSD teachers, staff and administrators are working hard, and are dedicated to making that goal happen each and every day for our students.

I will be sharing more information with you all as I receive it.

Have a great week, and be well.
- Dr. Kobylski

Davenport Schools Nutrition Update: USDA Meals

Davenport Community Schools Nutrition Although the USDA signed a waiver for all United States kids to eat free meals at public schools, individual schools must qualify based on economic need. The Davenport Community School District must apply through the state of Iowa for this funding program. Currently the state of Iowa is NOT accepting applications until the USDA can clarify several regulations. Until the state of Iowa determines how to handle this new regulation, DCSD will continue to charge for meals based on student status. 

Non-CEP (Community Eligibility Provision) schools include: Central, North, West, Sudlow, Walcott, McKinley, Harrison, Eisenhower, Blue Grass, Buffalo, and Adams. These students will continue to be charged for meals. All other schools are already eligible for free meals through the CEP program.

You can find more information on this, and a DCSD interview with KWQC here.

As we begin a new school year, the Davenport Community School District is prepared for the challenges and are eager to continue providing students with great lunches every day. In the flyer below, you will find some procedures we will be implementing to ensure safe, healthy meals for kids during the school week! Once you order meals, they will continue until you cancel. To cancel, call Operations at 563-336-7430.

Click the flyer below for information on meals for students in the Hybrid Learning Model and the 100% Online Only Learning Models.
