  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A Memo from the Director 11/13/2020

    On August 31, Governor Raimondo announced that all school districts in Rhode Island had the “green light” to reopen for full in-person learning on September 14, with the exception of Providence and Central Falls. However, Davies decided to start the school year under a partial (50%) reopening scenario in response to community desires and the public health situation in our primary sending districts. Davies committed to periodically reevaluating our operating scenario and to do so specifically on November 13th to determine if changes were appropriate. After careful consideration, Davies will continue to operate under our partial (50%) operating scenario and will continue to follow our established hybrid schedule.

  • A Memo from the Director 10/20/2020

    If your student was a member of the classroom of interest and therefore must quarantine, you and your student would have already received a separate memo from Davies indicating as such. You also would receive a call from RIDOH. If you did not receive a separate memo from Davies and a call from RIDOH, then your child is not a member of the classroom of interest and therefore you need not take any action.
