Greetings from Dunlap Leadership Academy!
Dunlap Leadership Academy or DLA, has much to offer students. We are an online, charter school and can serve students in Kings Canyon Unified as well as every adjacent county to our own Fresno County. We serve 9th-12th grade students on line using APEX and FuelEd curriculum and offer a multitude of opportunities for students to study at their own pace, on their own schedule, catch up with credits or even graduate early and take college classes. We offer three locations to work, besides the comfort of your own home, library or free wifi centers; our Dunlap site which functions much like a traditional school experience where students come and stay for the day with a break, lunch and afternoon PE. Our Reedley site is located behind Reedley High School across from our transportation office. and the Orange Cove site in room 8 at Sheridan School. Both of these sites serve as Resource Centers for students to work out of on days they wish to attend or when support is needed.
DLA has four, full time, NCLB, fully credentialed teachers covering English, Music, Math, Art, History/Social Science and Science. The teachers rotate to the three locations to best meet the needs of the students in their subject areas.
Dunlap Leadership Academy was recently awarded 6 years of accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). We offer courses that are A-G and NCAA approved. DLA offers engaging, rigorous courses that prepare you for any college of your choice.
DLA staff is in training with Fresno County Office of Education for full implementation of PBIS. Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports is a county program that trains and guides schools in creating a more positive and productive climate for their school. Dunlap Leadership Academy has chosen 5 expectations as their foundation: Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Drive and Excellence. We look forward to working with the students, parents and staff to create a most meaningful and productive year for all.
Thank you for taking the time to browse through our website. We are always looking for ways to improve communication between all our stakeholders. Please feel free to reach out, ask questions, and offer suggestions as we hope you will frequently join us in working collaboratively to keep academic progress at the forefront as we work with PRIDE to build Champions at Dunlap Leadership Academy.
