News & Announcements

bookStudents previously enrolled in grades 8 - 11 in Derby Schools for the 2015-16 school year can now view their class schedules for the upcoming 2016-17 school year through their Skyward Student/Family Access accounts online. Printed schedules are not available at this time. Since students met with counselors to select their class schedules last Spring, there will be a limit of two student-initiated schedule changes during the 2016-17 school year. Please reference the Derby High School calendar for more information regarding upcoming schedule change opportunities.

Students who took the ACT at DHS in April should have received official ACT scores in the mail towards the end of May. These score reports are comprehensive and should be fairly easy to understand. DHS will offer a session for parents in the Fall to discuss score reports and address any questions you may have. Scores for the ACT Aspire will not be available until the end of July. DHS will make these score reports available to parents after school resumes. We appreciate your patience.


ATTENDANCE OFFICE: Parents calling to check out their student or excuse an absence should call the Attendance Office directly at (316) 788-8522. Thank you.
