An important piece of a DVC education is the school and life skills and social awareness curriculum we cover in advisory. We are going to start posting advisory curriculum here on the blog so that you can have a starting point for family conversations about life in high school and events around the world. This past month we have focused on Latino Heritage month, and today we are going over the family/student handbook and some scenarios where school consequences would be instituted. We hope that you use these advisory lessons to have rich conversations with your children about growing into young adults, and add your guidance and insight to the topics we discuss here at school.
Family and Student Handbook (always available on the DVC portal as well)
