    Hello Smart Community,

    This morning, Governor Kim Reynolds ordered all Iowa schools to close for the remainder of the 2019 – 2020 school year. With this news, all Davenport Community School District schools will remain closed through the end of this school year. As a District, we have been diligently planning multiple scenarios during this closure and can now focus our attention and energy squarely on today’s decision from the Governor’s Office.

    We know that this closure brings up many questions, and we appreciate your patience as we outline next steps per the Governor and Iowa Department of Education’s recommendations. The DCSD team will be working hard this weekend to iron out the details of what this means for our students, teachers and families. We will send out a communication on Monday with a plan of what’s to come next.

    Thanks,

    Mr. Jones

    Smart Intermediate Continuous Learning Link

    The teachers at your school have created Google classrooms for each grade level and course with daily learning activities. While all learning opportunities are voluntary, we encourage parents and students to take advantage of the instruction offered. As a result of these learning activities being voluntary, no activities will be graded assessed or used as a measure of student learning. The goal is to keep children and teens academically and intellectually active as well as provide opportunities to your child to interact with a teacher to gain feedback about their progress.
     

    Voluntary Continuous Learning

    The Davenport Community School Board voted on April 8, 2020, to engage students in voluntary Continuous Learning during the school closure due to the Covoid 19 virus. While all learning opportunities are voluntary, we encourage parents and students to take advantage of the instruction offered. As a result of this instruction being voluntary, no grades will be issued.  

    During this time, our educators are committed to keeping children and teens academically and intellectually active. The teachers at your student’s school have created Google classrooms for each grade level and course with daily learning activities.  The Continuous Learning website has been updated with specific school course content and the opportunity for your child to interact with a teacher and gain feedback about their progress. The site is ready for you to access, but we are considering Monday, April 13, as the official launch date.

    Please visit the Continuous Learning Website and select your child’s school to access the daily materials:

    Online Learning Resources for Students and Families

    A District and community priority while schools are closed is to provide students and families with what is needed to keep students engaged and on track for success.

    The Davenport Community School District has created a website filled with online learning resources to support families and students at this time, organized by grade level. We hope that this website will assist you during the school closure.

    Throughout our school closures, we plan to keep this website up-to-date with learning activities, resources, guides, and more for students and families. Please use the navigation bar at the top of the website to locate your student’s grade level resources and information.
