Academie Da Vinci FAQ’s for the 2020-21 Reopening of School


 *Letter to Parents 

Dear ADV Parents and Guardians, 

We understand that this has been a difficult and confusing time for families as we navigate our way through the challenges of physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand that as parents, you are not only concerned with your children’s safety and well-being, but also with the quality of education they will receive at their school. We want to assure you that we have your children’s best interest at heart, and we are making every effort to keep them safe and well-educated.  
The reopening plan that we have developed is based on the latest CDC guidelines for safety and focuses on providing a high-quality educational program aligned to state standards and grade level expectations. Please remain flexible with us, as we will make changes to our plan as any guidance from the CDC, Florida Department of Education, or any other major organization may necessitate. We will also provide regular written and/or video communication in the coming weeks to help you prepare for the first day of school. We want to reduce any anxiety by showing you (not just telling you) exactly what to expect. 
Today you are receiving a one-page summary of our reopening plan. We will use our Distance Learning page on the ADV website to communicate our full reopening plan after Board approval on Tuesday, July 21. We will also provide links to resources that we believe will help you feel more secure about making the best decision for your family. 
In order to best serve the needs of our students, we are asking parents/guardians to complete a short survey that may be retrieved at this linkhttps://schools.scriptapp.com/#/workflow-submission/941410369c8b16a19d93a4d24a3dca68ad10ad054
If you have more than one child at our school, please complete a separate survey for each child. We will need this survey completed by Friday, July 24 so we may prepare for the reopening of school.  
We appreciate your participation in this survey. As always, thank you for your support. 
Mrs. Morgan and Ms. Dick

                                                                                                                                2021-22 School Calendar

Academie Da Vinci Charter School for the Arts and Technology  is a Kindergarten through 8th grade school located in Dunedin, Florida. We are the first charter school to be established in Pinellas County. Our school is part of the Pinellas County Schools and follows the Pinellas County Schools curriculum. We enhance that curriculum with a curriculum program called STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts and math. STEAM curriculum offers students the opportunity to learn new skills and information in multiple ways and to demonstrate their learning through projects and presentations. Academie Da Vinci follows the county's school-year calendar. (See the calendar for the schedule of events.)

The school's two buildings house the school offices, classrooms, a Multi-Purpose room, and Music, Visual Art, and Dance Studios. In 2016, the school renovated the previously vacant space in the building located at 1064 Keene Rd for the Middle School. We built classrooms for the middle school, a science lab, a large media center, a second multi-purpose room and administrative offices.

Curriculum and Instruction

Academie Da Vinci (ADV) follows the same academic curriculum followed within the Pinellas County Schools. We are obligated to meet the same State Standards and participate in the state testing each year.

What sets us apart from traditional public schools is our firm integration in the arts. In addition to the regular curriculum (i.e., Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Health, and Physical Education) our students also participate in integrated arts classes each week. These classes include general music with instruments, movement, chorus, visual arts, dance, and drama.

Arts are integrated into the curriculum in a variety of ways. For example, if students are studying Native Americans in class, they will also be doing Native American movement in dance, Native American music in music and chorus, and re-creating Native American artwork in visual arts. This integration is true in all grades throughout the year.

Our methods of instruction vary based on the subjects taught and styles of learning present within our student body. Our students work and study individually, one on one with a teacher, in pairs, in small groups, and as a whole class.

School Size and Programs

There are approximately 320 students enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade (2 classes per grade). We provide a Gifted program for those students who qualify according to Pinellas County guidelines.

On campus, we have our own music room which hosts vocal and instrumental music. We have a large dance room for students to actively participate in movement. We also have a separate visual arts room.

All of our faculty are certified to teach by the State of Florida and are required to stay current with professional development. These professional educators are regularly available for parent meetings and conferences.

Every student enrolled at ADV takes part in music, dance, drama, and visual arts classes. All students participate in the student shows twice per year designed to showcase student learning.
