Connect Program

Connect. Engage. Succeed.

Plain and simple, the Dubuque Community School District Connect Program is designed to help students succeed in high school and beyond.

Selected through a nomination process, students chosen for the program will benefit from a smaller, more personal learning environment as well as a focus on developing success skills. The Connect Program simultaneously serves 30 to 35 students in the second semester of eight grade or first semester of ninth grade.
