Academic End-of-Course (EOC) Testing Information
  • This testing encompasses end-of-course retakes with the exception to Government; therefore, not all of our full day academic students are affected.
  • This testing only applies for students taking Government for the first semester. Students taking a full year of Government will test in May.
  • All testing will occur at 8:05 AM; therefore, some full day students will be missing lab in order to fulfill this Ohio Department of Education Pathway to a diploma.
  • Those students affected will be made aware of their testing well in advance by their DACC School Counselor. If you have questions, please reach out to your designated school counselor.
  • DACC has been providing EOC remediation for retakes since September to prepare students for success.

School Closings & Delays
School delays and closings can sometimes be confusing and we want to make sure you know exactly what to do. We have posted an  FAQ page on our web site  where we answer these questions about what to expect and what's expected of our students.

Please remember that you will not be contacted by our associate districts for DACC delays and closings. You will only receive information directly from DACC through the Honeywell Instant Alert System, on social media, and through the news.

Additional questions or special circumstances can be directed to PJ Taylor at (740) 203-2268.

DACC In the News
Why buy it when you can make it?
If you're the kind of person who can make something from scratch instead of having to buy it, you know the satisfaction that comes with saving money, creating something custom-made, and seeing your creation put to good use. When our instructors pool their talents and knowledge, there is no stopping them. In place of purchasing necessary yet expensive equipment, our Welding, Construction, & Landscape instructors are creating custom-made equipment for the Fire program. Read the full story in the Delaware Gazette.
Online Resources
Below are resources on the DACC web site that may be helpful to you. If you have questions that these resources do not answer, please don't hesitate to contact us at 740-548-0708.
