DACC Students and Families,

We have an exciting school year ahead of us and I cannot wait to get started. I know you invested your time, energy, and attention to research and think about your choice to attend the Delaware Area Career Center. I’m proud of you for evaluating your options and for making an informed decision about your future.

There’s a lot of information to take in as we get closer to the start of school. One important piece of information you need to know is how DACC is helping to create a safe and welcoming environment for you and all of our students and staff. Please take a moment to watch this video message about our safety protocols and expectations as they stand today.
At DACC we pride ourselves on being able to empower, prepare, inspire and connect opportunities for all of our students. To achieve this mission, we must have a safe and healthy environment. With this in mind, I am attaching a PDF copy of our Return to School Guide. This guide outlines what we are doing as a district to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and what we expect from our staff and students. I appreciate your support in keeping our community safe -- thank you. 

Included below are important dates, times, and tasks to be aware of prior to our first day back. If you have any questions about the start of school in the fall or our safety protocols, please feel free to call us at 740-548-0708 or email us.
