Dana News

3/24/17

Please be advised that in order to support student and staff safety, effective Monday, March 27, there will be a new exit procedure for all students.

Specifically, the Cabrillo Avenue pedestrian exit gate located south of the main doors (between 15th and 16th Streets) will no longer be available as a student exit.  As a result, all students will exit the campus from the North side of the main doors.

The specific gates through which students will be able to exit starting Monday, March 27, are:

 

  • The Cabrillo Avenue pedestrian gate located between 14th and 15th Streets
  • The 14th Street pedestrian gate
  • The 14th Street vehicle gate (will begin to be opened)

 

Please discuss an alternative pick up location for your student if necessary, or allow extra time for your student to walk around to Cabrillo Avenue from the north side of campus.

Please click the attached link for a printable version of the student letter that will be sent home Monday, March 27.

Thank you for your support of a safe and secure campus.

 

Best,

 

Steve Gebhart

IMPORTANT: Culmination Requirements

Dana Middle School supports the inclusion, academic, and social success of all students. At the conclusion of a student's 8th Grade year, an academic Certification of Completion is earned based solely on a student's academic performance.
 
Eligibility and participation in the Culmination Ceremony, however, is a privilege that is earned based on specific Culmination requirements.
 
Beginning in the 2016-2017 school year, the eligibility requirements for a student to participate in the Dana Middle School Culmination ceremony will change.
 
The following is a list of Culmination requirements, pending approval (once approved formal notification will be disseminated):
  • Student must earn at least 50 credits total between the final (20-week) report cards for Fall and Spring semesters of their 8th Grade year.
  • Student must have no more than two "U"s in Work Habits total between the final (20-week) report cards for Fall and Spring semesters of their 8th Grade year.
  • Student must have no more than two "U"s in Cooperation total between the final (20-week) report cards for Fall and Spring semesters of their 8th Grade year.
  • Student must clear all library fines and return all class textbooks.
  • Student must have no outstanding discipline consequences (detention, Friday School, restorative requirements, intervention group make-up, etc.)
  • Student must have no major school rule infractions, as determined and notified to the student and parent by the Principal or other Administrative Designee.
Any student not meeting the Culmination requirements as stated above will be notified within 7 days of the Culmination ceremony.
 
Any appeal of the denial of participation in the Culmination ceremony must be submitted in writing, to the Dana Middle School Principal, within 4 days of the Culmination ceremony.  Appeal forms are available in the Dana Middle School Main Office.
 
Thank you to all stakeholders for supporting a meaningful Culmination ceremony.
