Dear DVC Families,
Thank you to all of the families who contributed to our holiday meal for our DVC staff. It was a huge success! We enjoyed the lunch tremendously and are very grateful!
Semester 1 grades are complete and report cards will be mailed out today. When you receive your student’s report card, you may notice the following:
(1) There are no narrative comments for each class this semester. As DVC has increased in student enrollment, the practice of writing narrative comments has become unsustainable for our teachers. The teachers give specific, detailed comments to students regarding their Presentation of Learning, and students have digital access to their Presentation of Learning scoring guide.
(2) There are likely two classes listed for “Presentation of Learning,” and there is a grade for only one of them. Please know that the second course (the one that is missing a grade) will not be reflected on your student’s transcript.
We are so proud of the hard work that DVC students have done to strive toward mastery of the knowledge and skills of their courses, and we hope that they enjoy a well-deserved break! Our teachers and counselors are also beginning a well-deserved break, so if you have any questions about your student’s grades, I ask that you wait until we return in January. If you have any urgent questions or concerns, please direct them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our office staff will return on Monday, January 6th, and students will return on Monday, January 13th.
Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season,
