Updates and Reminders:

**EOC Assessments will count as 20% of a student’s final grade in associated classes.  If a student is not able to make up the assessment at this time, they will test at the end of June at DSA.
*Please click HERE  for information on End of Grade assessments as it pertains to updated ruling on promotion/retention/placement for students in grades 3, 5, & 8.
*May 24-Local Election Day-for more information on DCSD eSPLOST-V, click HERE
*DSA will now only accept cash or money orders for financial obligations.  All obligations must be cleared for the semester before final report cards will be issued.  Students should start preparing to turn in textbooks, media center materials, etc., to avoid fines or replacement costs.
*DCSD has published Social Media Guidelines for students.  To access the information, click HERE
*During the last 4 weeks of school, there are limited after-school activities (mostly tutuoring).  Parents–please start planning to have your student picked up by 3:45 each day.  On May 26 (last day of school), another high school will host graduation at Avondale Stadium, so our campus needs to be cleared by 4:00pm.
