According to the Davenport Community School District’s website, the District requested a waiver to allow remote learning to continue through December 16 due to the rising case counts of COVID-19 and the high positivity rate of tests in Scott County. The waiver was approved by the Department of Education on Tuesday, November 24.

On December 3, the District will distribute plans for the week of December 7 – 11. On December 10, the District will distribute plans for the week of December 14 – 18. As information becomes available, the District will continue to post on the their website, send out communications to families in email and phone, post in the Parent Portal, publish on social media, send out updates through media partners, and mail packets to families.
While the waiver grants the District permission to provide 100% Online Only learning through December 16, it does not require the District to continue remote learning for the entire duration.
According to the District’s website, during this extended period of 100% Online Only Learning, all in-person activities and practices will continue to be suspended.
