Superintendent Monthly Message (English)


Dear Dayton Families                                                                                        February 27, 2023              

Dayton High School has exceeded the state 4-year graduation rate for the class of 2022. The DHS 4-year graduation rate was 85.33 percent which was over 4 percentage points higher than the state rate of 81.3 percent. It takes 13 years of partnership between staff and families to help our students across the finish line. We continue to work for strategies to improve support for our students and work hard to help all of our students graduate on time. We have a few students who require a 5th year to graduate due to various circumstances in their lives.

In January the Dayton School Board approved the academic calendar for the 2023-2024 school year. The calendar includes the first day of school for students in grades PK-5, 6 and 9 on September 5. Students in grades 7, 8, and 10-12 will begin school on September 6. This gives our 6th grade and 9th grade students a day to transition into their new schools. Winter break will be from December 25 to January 5 and spring break will be from March 25 to March 29.

The annual ABC Foundation event is coming up on April 22, 2023. The foundation raises money with an online auction and dinner fundraiser to support teacher grants and scholarships for students. More information can be found here

We encourage the community to stop by our schools and visit. We especially want to see you at the events that happen throughout the year. Our staff and students work hard everyday. We are extremely thankful to the community for your continued support. Go Pirates!
