News and Announcements

  • Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update From The Director

    This is a message from the Director of Davies High School. For at least the month of April, all schooling in Rhode Island will be delivered through distance learning, and it is likely that we may have to continue beyond that. The Governor and the RIDOH continue to make decisions and changes incrementally in an effort to maintain hope that we will return to school to finish out the year. We could all use a long weekend. As such, the Governor has directed all schools to take April 9th and April 10th off. To be clear, there will not be any remote classes or office hours on April 9th or April 10th – enjoy the long weekend. Students and families should check their email for more information. It is also available at daviestech.org. Thank you.

  • Mobile Hotspot for Families without Internet

    While the shift to distance learning can be exciting for students, families, and teachers, we know it can also create strain for those who lack reliable and affordable in-home internet. The Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) has worked with internet providers and cell phone carriers to help ensure all families in the state can connect to the Internet at home.

    Davies' administration and teachers have worked tirelessly to develop this Emergency Remote Teaching and Learning Policy. We welcome Davies' community members to review and provide feedback by clicking here. Given the unique circumstances of the COVID-19 situation, all community members must understand that this plan is in draft form. Davies will make adjustments based upon implementation. The continued education of our students is of the utmost importance.

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.
