Dear Student and Parent/Guardians,

As we get into the full swing of second semester, students are busy preparing for their Career Technical Student Organizations competitions. The hard work our students are putting in will pay off for years to come. They are learning new skills, stretching their talents, making contacts, adding awards to their portfolios, and building their confidence
 
As they continue to put their skills up against the best-of-the-best on a regional, statewide, and even national level, we wish them the best of luck.

With the unpredictable weather, please visit our web site for information on DACC's school delays and closings policy.

If you have any questions or need to speak with someone at DACC, please don't hesitate to call us at 740-548-0708.
