Special Upcoming Dates to Note

All of our important events are listed on the DACC web site Events Page.

Fees are due as soon as possible.
Attendance and Call-In Policy
Attendance reflects school performance. Students are required to be in attendance all days that Delaware Area Career Center is in session. If possible, doctor appointments and other commitments should be scheduled after school hours. If an absence is unavoidable, please contact the South Campus at 740-201-3211 or North Campus at 740-203-2268 before 9:00 a.m. For more information about our attendance policies, visit the Attendance page on the DACC web site.
Student lunches will be offered at North Campus for all students.
The Delaware Area Career Center implemented a new computerized debit system in our North Campus cafeteria that replaced our traditional cash registers. This system is very similar to those in use at the home school districts. Students will use their Student ID number for their debit account when they purchase lunch. Money and checks (payable to: DACC) can be put on account at the register during the lunch shifts.
Students may purchase a "Class A" balanced lunch for $3.00 and purchase items a la carte. A la carte items vary in cost.
Students attending half day who have lunch scheduling and bus concerns please contact your guidance counselor.
Free and reduced-price lunch applications were included in the Student/Parent Meeting Packet and are available in the Main Office. Please turn in all completed applications to Anita English (South Campus) and Debbi Pemberton (North Campus). Questions should be directed to Judy Clickenger at 740-203-2203
Please remember that Delaware Area Career Center has a closed lunch policy. Full day students are not allowed to leave school for lunch.
Visit our web site for monthly lunch menus.
Students who qualify for a free lunch may also have school fees waived. To become eligible for a fee waiver, parents must fill out a free and reduced lunch application with DACC and check off and sign the section asking for a fee waiver.
Career-Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs)
Career-Technical Student Organizations teach leadership and teamwork. Each student will participate in either SkillsUSA, BPA (Business Professional of America), FEA (Future Educators of America), FFA or FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America). Encourage your student to become involved in the competitions that will allow him/her to showcase his/her skills at regional, state or national competitions. More information is available about each organization on our web site.
Early Job Experiences are offered to seniors with qualifying grades and attendance starting at the second semester. Read more about one student's experience with early job placement on our Student Blog.
Our bell schedule is housed under the "parent" section on our website. This link will take you directly to our bell schedule.
Fees are due by the start of classes. It is important to pay fees as soon as possible. Many fees include the cost of lab workbooks and safety equipment that is needed to participate in lab assignments and maintain safety. Fees can be paid with credit or debit cards.
Payment plans are also available. Contact Anita English at South Campus 740-201-3210 or Debbi Pemberton at North Campus 740-203-2201 for assistance or if you have questions.
