Dana Middle School supports the inclusion, academic, and social success of all students. At the conclusion of a student's 8th Grade year, an academic Certification of Completion is earned based solely on a student's academic performance.
Eligibility and participation in the Culmination Ceremony, however, is a privilege that is earned based on specific Culmination requirements.
Effective in the 2016-2017 school year, the eligibility requirements for a student to participate in the Dana Middle SchoolCulmination ceremony have changed.
The following is a list of Culmination requirements:
Any student not meeting the Culmination requirements as stated above will be notified within 7 days of the Culmination ceremony.
Any appeal of the denial of participation in the Culmination ceremony must be submitted in writing, to the Dana Middle School Principal, within 4 days of the Culmination ceremony. Appeal forms are available in the Dana Middle School Main Office.
