To: Dayton Leadership Academies Current and Prospective Families
Date: February 4, 2016
You may have heard news reports that some of the elementary schools in the Dayton Public School District are changing their grade configuration. Some will be PK-6 and some will be 7-8th grades only.
Please know that Dayton Leadership Academies (DLA) will continue to provide grades Kindergarten through 8th grade next year and beyond.
Facts about this story include:
Dayton Leadership Academies are NOT part of the Dayton School District. DLA schools are independent charter public schools which allow us to make all of our own operating decisions.
Dayton Leadership Academies offer grades Kindergarten through 8th grade and will continue to do so in future years. We are committed to serve families by preparing our students for high school. As a prime example of this preparation, 20 eighth graders have been accepted into Chaminade-Julienne and Alter High Schools in the past two years. Also, 5 of our 8th graders have been awarded Montgomery County College Promise scholarships.
Dayton Leadership Academies are currently enrolling students for next school year by re-enrolling our current students and taking applications from new students for next year. For enrollment information for grades K-8, please call 567-9426.
Preliminary test scores from 2015 show that DLA scored almost doubled the average results in the Dayton Public Schools. DLA also scored higher than the statewide average for all charter public schools in reading and math on a majority of tested grade levels.
Miami Valley Childhood Development Corporation operates two infant/toddler classrooms and four preschool classrooms in our building at Dayton Leadership Academies. So families can enroll their children from infant through 8th grade at DLA!
We hope this note helps to assure our families that their students can stay at DLA through 8th grade!!!
