Do you have a DAHS Senior Graduation Pennant that you don't know what to do with?  If so, we are collecting unwanted pennants to create a lobby display.  We will take any pennant in any condition.  We currently have pennants from the 1930s and 1940s, but are always looking for more.  Please drop off your donation at the DAHS main office.
Thanks,

Dover Area School District: Pennsylvania School Performance Profiles (SPP)

The Pennsylvania School Performance Profiles (SPP) for the Dover Area School District were released earlier this month. The SPP is an integral part of the Educator Effectiveness System, both teacher and principal evaluation.  As an online site, the SPP provides a school level academic score for all public schools, including charter and cyber charter schools, and full-time comprehensive career and technical centers. The SPP offers for districts/schools a means to communicate performance results to you and assist the DASD in aligning and focusing resources for continuous improvement.

Please take time to review your child’s school performance

If you have further questions regarding the School Performance Profile, please contact Ms. Jamy Jackson at JJackson@doversd.org.
