Permission to Leave After AP Testing
Students who will be taking one or more AP exams in May will have the opportunity to leave campus after testing with parent/guardian permission. In order for this to be pre-approved and to expedite the check-out process, students must complete the Permission to leave after AP testing form and submit it by noon on Friday, April 30th. Any student who does not complete this form will need to check out through the front office and will have to wait until a parent can be contacted. Check-out through our front office on testing days can have about a 30-45 minute wait. Unfortunately, due to the volume of students checking out, we will only be able to check students out if they submit a form by the deadline, or we contact the parent while the child waits in front office.
Thank you for helping us streamline our testing day check out procedures.
DA Community Learning Exchanges
Along with our partners, Drs. Chris Janson and Rudy Jamison from the UNF Center for Urban Education and Policy, we are excited to announce that we are launching a series of dialogs to help DASOTA students and family members deepen our understanding of ourselves and how – together – we can continue to build a culture and community strong enough to help everyone in our school family feel seen, heard, included, and respected.
These events are called Community Learning Exchanges (CLE). We are in the process of hosting a focus session with staff members and some of our student leaders. We hope that every student and at least one parent or guardian from each of our families will be able to participate in one of these unique sessions for enriching growth and learning through crossing boundaries, leading to inclusivity in addressing school concerns.
