Changes for Fall 2012
While the program and building will close, students will be reassigned to schools with existing Second Chance Programs including: Southeastern, Denby, Northwestern, Cody, and the brand new Mumford High School; West Side Academy Alternative High School; and other neighborhood high schools. Currently, DCHS has an enrollment of only 229 students in a building with capacity for nearly 1,000 students. Less than 1 percent of the students are proficient in mathematics, and only 8 percent are proficient in English-Language Arts. This transition will improve student learning and reduce administrative and operational costs to the district.
