October 30, 2019

This coming Tuesday, November 5, 2019 is your opportunity to have your voice heard in the Davenport General Election.

While your vote decides the outcome of Mayoral and City Council races, it also solidifies the members of our community who will be seated on the next Davenport Community Schools Board.

The Davenport School Board provides leadership and direction to improve the overall learning environment in our classrooms, schools and district, and directs and supports actions, programs, and activities which reduce the impacts of poverty on our students, their families, and our community.

If you’re still unsure of who will receive your vote, please utilize the Candidate Forum resources available through KWQC to learn about each candidate’s position on a variety of issues that will affect the Davenport Community School District and our students in the coming months and years.

Those selected to our next Davenport School Board must be willing to roll up their sleeves and work as a team to bridge challenges with ideas and solutions that will benefit our students, schools and community.

I encourage everyone to exercise their civic right to vote this coming Tuesday, November 5, including many of our Senior students who will be voting for the first time.

Vote for the future of Davenport, for our schools, and for our children.


Welcome back students, staff and parents.

Summer is quickly coming to a close and anticipation is high for the start of the 2019-2020 school year. The new academic year promises to be an exciting one for all of us. You will notice a number of enhancements and upgrades to our school facilities as well as changes in staff. We have hired new employees, others have taken on new positions and responsibilities and still others have moved on to new adventures.

From the moment of my official appointment as Davenport’s superintendent, I have received nothing but kindness, support and encouragement from all corners of this great community. I’ve challenged the DCSD staff with the following: Let’s rekindle the same measure of kindness, warmth, support and encouragement to one another that’s been shown to me. Be wise and compassionate leaders to your colleagues, neighbors, and especially to our students who look to us for guidance, inspiration. Mutual respect and teamwork serve to bind our great learning community and these attributes are among the most important values that all of us will ever learn from one another. Thank you in advance for all of your efforts and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Warmest regards,
Robert Kobylski, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
