INNOVATIVE CHARTER SCHOOL PARTNERS WITH JOB CORPS
Dohn Community High School, an innovative charter school that offers a unique credit recovery program for at-risk students, has taken “thinking-out-of-the box” to a new level.  They have recently partnered with Cincinnati Job Corps, a no-cost education and vocational training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor. The program helps young people ages 16 through 24 improve the quality of their lives by teaching them the skills they need to become employable and independent and by placing them in meaningful jobs or further education. Currently, Dohn is the only charter school of its kind to have such a phenomenal partnership. Students from Dohn who qualify and opt to participate in Job Corps will attend academic classes at Dohn High School, 608 East McMillan Street, in the morning (8-12) and then leave to attend their chosen vocational program at Cincinnati Job Corps, located at  1409 Western Avenue.   The 
co-enrollment classes are scheduled to begin September 6, 2016. 

Just minutes away from Dohn Community High School, Cincinnati Job Corps Center is in a historic landmark building that was previously owned by the Sisters of Mercy. The building is over 100 years old. Several students in the construction- training program have been involved in the renovation projects in the building.

Ramone Davenport, Principal and Superintendent of Dohn, is excited to be part of Job Corps. “I am so happy that we are able to partner with Job Corps of Cincinnati; this gives Dohn Community High School and its students so many different options.  I always want to be a school where we lead people into successful career paths, and this gives us that ability.  Students will be able to learn different trades and will be able to become productive citizens in society.”  At Job Corps, Dohn students may choose from the following trades: Welding, Auto Repair, Carpentry, Culinary Arts, or Facilities Maintenance. Besides their on-campus vocational training, 
students are required to have 100 intern hours in their chosen field. Ms. Anteia Greer, Vocational Coordinator at Dohn, has found that students and parents alike are looking forward to the partnership. “Not only will students obtain a diploma when they graduate, but they also will be certified in a trade that will make them more employable,” Ms. Greer states. “With the support from both staffs, students will learn life skills along with an excellent work ethic which will set them up for continued success.”  Sharon Thompson, Business Community Liaison for Job Corps is very excited to be partnering with Dohn. “It’s important to share our resources for educational and training purposes. Young adults need more than a high school diploma to compete in this global world.” Ms. Thompson says Job Corps is currently looking to partner with other schools like Dohn. “There definitely is a need for us in the Cincinnati community.”

According to Bev Williams, Cincinnati Job Corps Director, students involved in Job Corps are very active in the community, and many volunteer their time to help others who are less fortunate. Staff members also participate in community outreach events and festivals on a regular basis. Some of Job Corps’ community service partners include the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Hoxworth Blood Center, the City of Cincinnati, CitCable, the Cincinnati Parks Board, the Free Store Food Bank, and the International Chemical Workers Union Council (ICWUC).

Job Corps also assists graduating students in conducting job searches. For six months after graduation, Job Corps career transition specialists keep in touch with students to make sure things are going well in their chosen career.Besides active job placement, Job Corps has cooperative agreements with community colleges or related institutions to teach career area courses or to have individual students take courses to gain college credit. Specialists work with students to help them transfer into college programs when appropriate.


Both Dohn Community High School and Job Corps are committed to offering all students a safe, drug-free environment where they can take advantage of the many resources provided. Any qualified student interested in attending Dohn Community High School may contact the school at 513-281-6100.

Ramon Davenport is not only an innovative leader, an inspiring principal, and an energetic dynamo, he is the remarkable force behind the success of Dohn Community High School.

His accomplishments range from increasing student enrollment and greatly improving the school’s graduation rate to creating and implementing several programs that accommodate student’s needs and schedules.  Mr. Davenport, along with his skilled team of educators, successfully increased the school’s state test scores.  Under his leadership, Dohn has recently implemented a new program for adults known as the 22 Plus Program.  In this program ANY adult over the age of 22 can enroll and receive a high school diploma after completing all the the program’s mandatory state requirements.


Ramon Davenport not only receives support and recognition for his great leadership from Dohn students, parents and community but also from his staff.  Last year the entire Dohn Community High School faculty honored him a with a “Creative Visionary” award.


Mr. Davenport’s accomplishments, as a great leader, are not only apparent in Cincinnati but were recognized on Friday, November 13, 2015 on the Ohio State University’s campus in Columbus during the Ohio Alliance For Public Charter School.  Congratulations Mr Ramone Davenport!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT LEAD POISONING

Prevention of Lead Poisoning
Exposures to lead in doses much smaller than previously thought represent a definable risk to children's health and their ability to learn.

The School will attempt to control the use and maintenance of lead-bearing building products and avoid the use of any educational or maintenance procedures or products which may create lead exposures.

The School assures that a parent or guardian outreach program will be implemented to properly communicate information regarding risks from lead and other heavy metals in an attempt to help prevent exposures, by including an information packet similar to that found in Appendix KK.

R.C. Chapter 3742.

See Appendix KK Protect Your Family From Lead in Your Home.  read more by clicking on... Prevention of Lead Poisoning
