October 17th
COTA Day - No High School Classes
COTA day is designed to allow time for teachers to enhance their professional development goals through workshops, community service opportunities, programs, speakers, etc. that are beyond what the district is currently offering. This day serves to enhance the ongoing learning that our teachers participate in on a daily basis. We are excited to implement what they learn into the classroom. There will be no high school classes on this day.

During this 2014/2015 school year, the Delaware Area Career Center is celebrating 40 years of service and 40 years of support from the Delaware community. While community service is always a part of what we do, we are boosting our efforts this year to give back to the community that gives so much to us. Watch out for the #DACCGivesBack hash tag to see other great things our students are doing.


So far this year, our students have already participated in a number of activities.


Wildlife & Resource Management students participated in a BioBlitz in support of Delaware County Preservation Parks to help preserve Delaware County's natural resources.


Equine, Construction, & Landscape students spent time out at the Delaware County Fairgrounds, volunteering their time to prepare the grounds for the fair.


South Campus students gave blood to the Red Cross & our Health Technology students volunteered to help coordinate the blood drive. Later this week, North Campus students will be donating.
