Student Policies & Handbook
Message from Building Principal, Jim Gaskill
"As Principal, I would like to welcome you to the Delaware Area Career Center! The 2020-2021 school year will be the beginning of a fantastic journey that awaits you. Your journey begins with curricula that will prepare you simultaneously for college and for a career. Daily opportunities await you to enhance your academic and career technical skills, interface with state of the art technology and build leadership skills. Your journey continues with preparing and participating in competitive events around the region, the state and/or the country. Our co-curricular organizations; BPA, FCCLA, FFA, HOSA, or SkillsUSA will get you there. What a tremendous way to confirm your skill ability and level! Our school’s partnership with business, industry, and labor and community organizations will also offer you career and life experiences beyond the classroom or your lab.
DACC is staffed by one of the finest groups of career-technical and academic instructors, counselors, administrative assistants, and administrators in the state. We are all here to assure that you have every opportunity to excel in your career-tech lab and in your rigorous academic classes. Also, you have the opportunity to be involved in a wide variety of extra and co-curricular clubs and activities during the year. Research shows that this involvement directly contributes to increased school success.
Please carefully read the student handbook because it contains guidelines and recommendations that will allow you to take full advantage of the opportunities available here at DACC. The expectations and guidelines have been put in place to ensure that all behavior influences the school community in a positive way so that you and your fellow students can achieve your goals.
Our best to you as you prepare for this year and your future. I look forward to a productive, successful, and enjoyable year."
