You see DOVER PROUD
on banners and on district communications; you hear it at assemblies and during announcements, but what does it really mean?
is our district's PBIS slogan. PBIS stands for "Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports." PBIS is known nationwide as a way to create a more positive atmosphere in schools by rewarding students for POSITIVE
behavior, rather than only focusing on the consequences of inappropriate behavior.
Districts nationwide adopt a slogan that promotes desirable life-long behaviors, and is unique to the district. At Dover we have adopted the use of PROUD!
We believe all Dover Eagles will demonstrate…
P….......perseverance by embracing challenges!
Always do your best. Seek help. Know your resources.
R .......…respect for all people and all property!
Use appropriate language. Follow rules and expectations. Value yourself and others.
O.......…ownership of individual choices!
Be responsible for your own choices and actions. Be involved. Demonstrate self-discipline.
U.......…unity by supporting others!
Be tolerant and accepting of differences. Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements. Do your
share to make your school and community better.
D.......…dedication to learning!
Be reliable. Be engaged. Commit to goals.
At the high school, students are awarded Dover Dollars for recognition of positive behaviors.
Dover Dollars can be cashed in for prizes at the Red Zone, which is the school store at the high school.
Students can elect to not cash in their Dover Dollars, but instead, use them to enter into prize drawings
that will take place quarterly throughout the school year. A drawing for "college" prize packages
will take place at the end of the school year to recognize two seniors for positive behavior before graduating.
Lastly, we want to encourage everyone involved with the Dover School District to demonstrate DOVER PROUD!
Do the right thing even when no one is watching. Your individual actions represent us all!
This is a reminder to all parents, and students, about appointments during the school day. If a student needs to leave school for an appointment, we ask for the following procedures to be followed:
- Parent(s)/Guardian(s) write a note containing the student's name, what time the student must leave, what type of appointment the student has, and a parent/guardian signature.
- The student brings that note to the office during homeroom - the student should check in with the homeroom teacher first, if possible, so that proper attendance can be taken during homeroom.
- The student will be provided a pass to use to leave the class at the appropriate time for the appointment.
Please make every attempt to send a note in ahead of time with the student. Parents showing up at the office, or calling in at the last minute, are not efficient ways to handle appointments
! Last minute appointments cause difficulties in several ways, such as:
- Interruptions to classrooms
- Having to take students from classes where it is difficult to leave without prior knowledge (such as gym class)
- Students can't ask teachers ahead of time for work they will miss.
Again, please make every effort to plan ahead for appointments!
Dover High School thanks you for your cooperation!

Dover Area School District Implements Skyward Student Management System
New Student Information System Makes Data Streamlined
Dover, PA (June 23, 2016) – The Dover Area School District has launched their Skyward School Management System to streamline student information. The district aims to unify operations and improve data for teachers and students with the support of the acclaimed management solution.
Before transitioning to Skyward, the district encountered inefficiencies caused by multiple disconnected systems. With student data demands increasing in Pennsylvania, the district was required to enter the same information in multiple systems, resulting in data duplication and potential inaccuracies. Going live with Skyward, the Dover Area School District will be able to connect processes making procedures streamlined and less cumbersome.
"Skyward's integrated system will make our district's student information interface more efficient and accurate," said Mr. Kenneth Cherry, Superintendent of the Dover Area School District. "Skyward allows us to work smarter using state-of-the-art software and processes that have impressive track records with many districts for many years."
Skyward serves more than 6 million students and 1,800 school districts worldwide. For more than 30 years, Skyward has provided industry-leading school administrative software that empowers educators to effectively integrate, manage and analyze all critical education data, including student information, academic performance, finance and human resources. For more information on Skyward administrative software and IT consulting services for K-12 districts, visit www.skyward.com.
