News and Announcements

  • Message from New Director Watkins

    Dear Parents and Guardians, I’m thrilled to formally introduce myself to you as the new Director here at Davies Career and Tech. Today was my first official day on the job, and I’ve been so impressed by the warm welcome I’ve received, especially from the students, many of whom walked right up to say “hello” this morning. I want to reiterate that I’m honored to be entrusted with the care of the Davies community of learners. My goal is to build upon the partnerships that exist among parents, guardians, faculty and staff in order to best support students and their learning. To those ends, you are invited to attend in-person teacher conferences with academic staff (www.daviestech.org/ptc), and a workshop tomorrow, November 30th, 2021. Please remember that students will be dismissed at 11:15am.

The Career and Tech Advantage

  • At Davies Career and Technical, we are not a vo-tech school. We are creators of innovators for the twenty-first century. Our students see their education in action and put their technical training to use in internships, job shadowing, and placement opportunities through Davies’ dedicated Office of Workforce Development. And through their academic skills, they strive to not only pursue their dreams, but to one day become leaders.

    According to a 2016 report from the Fordham Institute in Washington, D.C., the statistics are in and they show: students at career and tech schools are just as likely to pursue a four-year degree and more likely to graduate, enroll in a two-year college, and be employed. Data from the U.S. Department of Education agrees; students with industry credentials - like the ones more than 90% of our students earn at Davies - are more likely to be employed than people with academic credentials alone.
