Our Results


Dear Supporters of Dayton Leadership Academies: 

From student-led conferences to leadership roles across the school, Dayton Leadership Academies is preparing our students to be leaders for today and tomorrow. In this report, we highlight the multiple ways DLA is fulfilling our mission and increasing academic achievement.  

In the 2022-2023 school year, DLA achieved many of our school goals, including:

  • On ODE’s school report card, we increased our ratings in four out of five categories and earned a 3 star rating in Progress and Gap Closing 

  • 94% average attendance at quarterly conferences 

  • 86% of families indicated that DLA is preparing their child for the next grade level 

  • 60% of 8th grade students were accepted to high performing or selective high schools 

We also received significant awards and grants: 

  • PBIS Bronze Level Award from the Ohio Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Network 

  • Achieved the Gold Level in Montgomery County ESC's Schools of Excellence in Prevention Program

  • Ohio Facilities Construction Commission Grant (OFCC) of $1,053,250

  • Auditor of State Award 

We are optimistic about the future for DLA students and our school community. This year we are developing our students to be leaders in the community, continuing to partner with families, and are leveraging the impact of our community partners. 

Together in Excellence, 

Joshua Ward, Board President             Tess Mitchner Asinjo, Executive Director
