All San Pedro area stakeholders are invited to the upcoming Coffee with the Superintendent, hosted by Dana Middle School, on Wednesday, April 26, at 6:00pm, in the Dana MS auditorium.


This event is a great opportunity to get updated and information directly from LD South Superintendent Christopher Downing regarding San Pedro area schools and goals.


Additionally, beginning at 4:00pm the Dana MS library will be open and staffed by Parent Engagement Center personnel to assist parents in signing up for the LAUSD Passport Program, designed to directly connect parents to school and district updates and information.


I look forward to seeing all Dana MS, and San Pedro area, school stakeholders at this community event.

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.
