Students at Daviess Co. High School 'prep' for the future

Posted: Updated:

Students and faculty at Daviess County High School will be seeing some changes to their daily schedule.

That new schedule is called "Panther Prep" and reflects the DCPS goal of preparing all students for life after high school.

Here's how it works.

Panther Prep allows students an extra half hour each day to meet with their current teachers.

According to a letter from Daviess County High School Principal Matt Mason, this time will be used to focus specifically on college and career readiness.

The goal of Panther Prep is to help students get ready for mandated spring tests, some of which begin as early as next month.

Some of those tests include the ACT, End of Course Assessments, and On-Demand Writing.

This extra half hour will be held during a different block each day of the week.

For example, on Mondays, Panther Prep will be held during the first block of the school day.

On Tuesdays, it will take place during the second block.

A quick power break will take place during whichever block Panther Prep is held.

The district is also working to organize extra test prep sessions for any students that want additional help.
