  • Mr. Flynn-Tabloff's Farewell to the Davies Community

    It is with a heavy heart that I inform the community of my resignation as Director of the Wm. M. Davies, Jr. Career and Technical High School. After 14 years of service to Davies, I have accepted a position as the Chief of the Program Administration and Accountability Branch within the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, DC. This new role will allow me to scale up my capacity to bring about meaningful change in the realm of education, specifically a career and technical education leading to careers in high-wage and high-demand occupations.

  • A message from the Director 1/4/2021

    The Department of Education released a unified school calendar on December 14, 2020. The calendar takes into consideration the new RIDOH guidelines for quarantine and isolation. The emphasis is to balance educational outcomes and public health considerations to enable the best long-term outcomes for school communities in 2021. This is in line with our goal to provide valuable in-person instruction for our students while continuing to adhere to all safety guidelines. We are also continuing to stress full-time in-person instruction for prioritized students. In light of this, Davies will return to operating under our Partial (50%) operating scenario that follows our established hybrid schedule. This will begin on Thursday, January 7, 2021.

  • A message from the Director: 12/10/2020

    After careful consideration and in alignment with the Governor’s continuation of the statewide “pause,” Davies will continue to operate under our limited (25%) operating scenario following our established hybrid schedule through December 23, 2020. Our goal is to return to more inperson instruction after the holidays and we urge all members of the Davies community to abide by RIDOH guidelines to increase the likelihood that we are able to do so. Davies will revisit this decision during holiday break to determine the appropriate operating scenario to begin on January 4, 2020. We continue to follow the ever-changing public health situation and to make our decisions through collaboration with RIDOH and RIDE. We remain committed to responding to public health data should it require us to adjust our operating scheduled at any point.

  • Enfrentandose a la perdida durante COVID-19: Recurso del taller para padres

    COVID19 ha cambiado la forma en que vemos el dolor y la pérdida. Nuestra nación está sufriendo la pérdida de nuestra rutina diaria, la forma en que decimos adiós a nuestro ser querido, y ha traído a la superficie sentimientos de depresión que realmente no podríamos identificar. Nos ha hecho enfrentar el proceso de duelo de frente con sentimientos de ira, depresión, negación, negociación y finalmente aceptación. Hablemos de cómo los adultos lidiamos con todos estos sentimientos impredecibles y cómo manejamos hablar con nuestros hijos sobre la pérdida y la incertidumbre.

  • Coping with Loss During COVID19: Parent Workshop Resource

    COVID19 has changed the way we look at grief and loss. Our nation is grieving the loss of our daily routine, the way we say goodbye to our loved one, and it has brought to the surface feelings of depression that we really could not identify. It’s made us face the grieving process head on with feelings of anger, depression, denial, bargaining, and finally acceptance. Let’s talk about how we as adults are dealing with all of these unpredictable feelings and how we manage talking to our children about loss and uncertainty.

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.

    Davies is a SkillsUSA Gold Chapter
