    The counseling department is planning a  Career Day on Thursday, May 25th in person at DDEMS. We are looking for people from all various fields of work that would like to be a presenter at this event. They have the option to present for the entire day or half of the day. Parents, if you know someone or if you're interested in being a presenter, please either share this link or complete the Google Form yourself. Someone will follow up in the near future with further details. Thank you in advance for your help with making this possible for our Eagle Scholars. 


    Administrative Procedure 5111, Registration and Withdrawal of Students, requires updated proof of residence when your child enters a different school for any reason.  The residency requirement is established by State law (COMAR) and further clarified by local Board of Education policy and administrative procedures. A recent review of your child(ren) student record determined than an updated Student Registration and proof of residence has not been completed online.  Please visit select Transitional Enrollment and upload updated proof of residence.
