  • COVID Update for Families from Director Watkins

    Dear Davies Parents and Guardians, As we enter the holiday season and winter months, we are seeing an uptick in the number of COVID cases and subsequent quarantines at Davies, just as are other schools across the state. Please assist us by setting a clear expectation for your child that masks are to be worn at all times (except while eating) in the school environment- including on the bus and in the building both before and after school. It is important that students wear their masks correctly, covering both the nose and mouth. We appreciate your support in providing your child with a mask to wear in school, as well as an extra mask to have on hand in case their mask breaks.

  • Memo from Director Watkins 12/16/21 Re: Tik Tok Post

    Dear Davies Families, I know some of you have heard about a recent Tik Tok post which implies a threat against schools nationwide for Friday the 17th. We are in communication with the Lincoln PD, and though there is no evidence to support that a credible threat exists against our school, we will continue to treat the matter seriously.

    The National Honor Society was formed in 1921. Over one million students are estimated to participate in the National Honor Society. Since 1946, the National Honor Society has given out more than $15 million in scholarship awards. Students who join Davies National Honor Society have a 3.75 GPA or higher, show leadership qualities, integrity, and are required to serve 20 service hours helping with different projects and Davies students far exceed those hours.

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
