DACC Parents and Families - 

As we near the end of the first semester, our students are getting more and more opportunities to put their skills to work in the community through work experiences and community service. This is the kind of hands-on training that we are thrilled to see our students get involved in, as it complements everything they are doing in the classroom and in their DACC lab. Below are just some of the activities our students have been up to. 


We are excited to continue sharing with you the opportunities our students have to be college, career, and life ready.


If you have any questions, please contact us at(740) 548-0708.

Pumpkin Chunkin' Champions

DACC's Welding and Sheet Metal Fabrication students recently competed in the statewide 'Picktown Throwdown Pumpkin Chunkin' Competition' and claimed first place for the second year in a row!



The process of taking a pile of metal and fabricating it into a trebuchet capable of launching a pumpkin 567 feet through the air is the type of hands on learning that provides our students with real life examples of their classroom studies and keeps them excited about coming to school every day.

DACC/BW FFA Students Take Top Honors

DACC/Big Walnut students recently competed in the Food Science and Technology Career event and claimed 1st, 2nd, 6th, & 8th out of 48 competitors. Congratulations to Troy Herrel, Ben Kessler, Ali Carter, and Lex Marvin!

College and Career Fair

We were thrilled to host our college and business/industry partners last week for the DACC College and Career Fair. What a great way for our students to explore their options after high school. We appreciate all of the colleges and vendors who participated.


BVMS/DACC Students Honor our Veterans
On November 13th, Tina Francis' DACC/BVMS students welcomed servicemen and women from all branches of the military for a Veterans Day Ceremony to honor their commitment and sacrifices for our country.

School Delays & Closings

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:



I'm a half-day junior. Do I come to my morning lab on a 1 or 2 hour delay?


I'm a half-day senior. Does my lab start at the regular time on a 1 or 2 hour delay?


I'm a full day senior. On a 1 or 2 hour delay, where should I go upon arriving at school?


My home school is on a 2 hour delay, but DACC is not. What do I do?


I just received my home school's notification that they are delayed/closed and the message stated that DACC is also delayed/closed. What should I do?



Please take a few moments to read through the questions to find a scenario that might apply to you or your child and bookmark the page on our web site for future reference.


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