    Central Construction Projects

    Dear Davenport Central Families,
    I wanted to provide a quick update on the status of the proposed auditorium and pool project for DCHS.  The school board remains committed to the project and will move to hire a new architect to assist the district in completing the construction plan. On July 7th, the school board will meet to discuss the issue and decide on a process to follow.  On July 8th the new process will begin and carefully move forward.  I will make every effort to keep all families informed with new information as it becomes available.
