Graduation Destination 2015 will kick off at 11:30 a.m. and run through 2 p.m. Saturday, August 15, 2015 at the River’s Edge, 700 West River Drive, Davenport. The event is open to the public and there’s no charge to attend. If you are a student under the age of 21 who has dropped out of Davenport Community Schools without graduating, if you are a parent with a student of any age who is struggling in school, if you are a community member who would like to learn more about what you can do to help students stay in school and graduate…this event is for you. We have approximately 20 representatives from community organizations who offer services that support students and their families. Davenport Community Schools counselors will be on site to talk with students who have already dropped out of school or may be thinking about dropping out.
Welcome back students! We hope you had a great summer and we’re excited to see everyone back in our classrooms in just a few days.
