Principal’s Message

July 1, 2022

Dear Families,

We are continuing to build on what we have started at DDOA this last year and I am excited to be starting as Principal for the 2022-23 school year.  We are building in additional student connection time to our program, while continuing to focus on delivering a rigorous online academic program.  

Kindergarten through 5th grade students continue to have a full time teacher dedicated to their class.  We will be offering monthly in person meet-up activities (optional), quarterly online assemblies and student recognitions throughout the year.  Please be looking for more information as we begin the new year. 

Our 6-12 grade students, while also working through the Apex curriculum with daily Teacher Connection Times are invited to join our online clubs and groups, as well as take part in their home school activities.  High School students will receive post secondary planning support throughout high school and are encouraged to attend sporting events and social activities at their home school.

DDOA students are eligible to take in person courses, while being enrolled full time with us. By offering in person opportunities, online clubs and activities, and additional support we hope to set ourselves apart from other online schools and ensure that our students are connected to the David Douglas community.

The DDOA team of teachers and staff is excited and eager to work with your student this year.  Please reach out if you have any questions.  As we continue to build this program, we welcome your suggestions and feedback!
