Message from the Principal

Monarchs:

The Denison High School Staff and Administration would like to thank all students and their parents for helping us with mitigating the COVID impact on Denison High School.   We have been able to provide face-to-face learning because of the efforts of our parents and students.  Thank you for supporting our mitigating procedures.

The Iowa State Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) are assessments developed by Iowa Testing Programs at the University of Iowa for the state of Iowa. The assessments are aligned with the Iowa Core standards and provide a clear and accurate assessment of student learning outcomes.   All students in grades 9 - 11 are required to take the assessments.  Seniors will have a different schedule for those two days. The ISASP Assessments  will be given on Tuesday, April 13 and Wednesday, April 14.  Full time online students will need to be at school on Tuesday, April 13 to take the ISASP Assessments.  To find the schedule for Tuesday, April 13 and Wednesday, April please go to the high school home page and look under resources.

 

The Iowa Department of Education has included Conditions for Learning as part of the plan under the new federal education law, Every Student Succeeds Act.    All Iowa public school districts will use Conditions for Learning Surveys (Surveys) to improve safety, student engagement and the overall learning environment so that all Iowa students have optimum conditions for learning.  The high school will have all students take the Conditions for Learning survey on Wednesday, April 28.  Parents may exempt their child from the survey by notifying the district using the wavier form found on the high school's home page.

 

If you have any questions please contact the high school office at 712-263-3101.

 

Go Monarchs!!!

Dave Wiebers, Denison High School Principal
