Human Resources & Employee Benefits
Employing nearly 2,500 people, the Davenport Community Schools serve over 15,000 students in four communities: Blue Grass, Buffalo, Davenport, and Walcott. Nowhere else in the area do so many people, from so many different walks of life, come together each day to learn and work for the good of all. Thank you for your interest in learning more about this great learning community.
****Note: Former employees/substitutes who left in good standing must wait six (6) months from the effective date of resignation/retirement to reapply/be rehired. This applies to former employees looking to substitute as well.****

“I believe that the Davenport Community Schools is one of Iowa’s Leaders in Education. The skills that are taught to the “novice” learner are the skills that will resonate in them as contributing adults. Math, Science, Language Arts, Social Studies, Physical Education and the Arts are the vitamins for a healthy mind and body. Each of these subject areas work congruently with each other as I have witnessed with my own three children. Students of diverse backgrounds have worked as part of the learning environment. Understanding cultures as a part of the learning structure only enhances the educational experience. The Davenport Community Schools offer a well-rounded solution to an ever changing society.”
– Phyllis Thede, State Representative, Former Secretary at Williams Intermediate, and Parent of DCS Graduates
