Search By Address

NCompass Student Geographic Information Services is a tool used for finding one’s school relative to a street address. Open NCompass and use the “search” function in the upper left corner for an address check. You’ll be provided with the name of the appropriate elementary, intermediate, and high school, as well as the phone number and web site for each.

The Board of Directors of the Davenport Community Schools approved the school boundaries recommended by Superintendent Art Tate at the Monday, June 24, 2013 Board meeting.  School Board members routinely review school boundaries every five to seven years, the last review having taken place in 2006.

The population in Davenport has shifted during the intervening years and, this along with a very open in-district transfer policy, has left some of our schools at 100% or more of their building capacity. To address this situation, the district has taken two major steps:

  • Revising the Transfer Option Policy which states that except in serious circumstances elementary and intermediate students will attend the school within the boundary indicated by their place of residence.
  • Redrawing school boundaries to move toward an ideal building utilization of 85%.

HIGH SCHOOL

High School students may choose to attend any of our three high schools (Central, North and West) regardless of the boundary area in which they reside. However, if a student chooses to attend a high school outside their boundary area, they will be responsible for their own transportation.  The high schools need to be under the 85% optimum building utilization.

Students are only able to obtain one transfer option per calendar year.  These forms are available on-line, at all of our High School buildings, and at the district’s Achievement Services Center at 1606 Brady Street. You may return forms to either the sending school, receiving school or Marcene Johnson at the District’s Administrative Services Center at 1606 Brady Street.

INTERMEDIATE

  1. Beginning immediately, Board Policy 501.11 will govern transfers out of the attendance area.
  2. Students affected by boundary changes may continue in their current intermediate school if they attended last year.
  3. Current fifth grade students may attend the intermediate school assigned by current boundaries rather than the new boundaries in school year 2014-15.
  4. Intermediate students who are in a changed boundary which assigns them to a school other than the one they attended last year are encouraged and permitted to attend the new school.
  5. Siblings of intermediate students who were within the school boundary during the 2012-2013 school year may elect to be grandfathered into that school.

ELEMENTARY

Initially, most elementary and intermediate students will simply continue to attend their current school until they reach the highest grade level at that school. The plan for implementing the new boundaries (Administrative Regulation 501.12B) is as follows:

  1. Beginning immediately, Board Policy 501.11 will govern transfers out of the attendance area.
  2. Students affected by boundary changes may continue in their current elementary school if they attended last year or are in the current boundary for kindergarten.
  3. Elementary students who are in a changed boundary which assigns them to a school other than the one they attended last year are encouraged and permitted to attend their new school.
  4. Siblings of elementary students who were within the school boundary during the 2012-2013 school year may elect to be grandfathered into that school and attend until he\she enters intermediate school.
