Q. I’m a Davison High School student, how can I get into DTV?
A. DTV is always looking for bright new students, but there is a selection process to become a part of the DTV team. DTV is a class that is reserved for 9th through 12th graders at Davison High School. Students interested must apply. You can find the application on this page or in the Guidance Office. Once you fill out the application, you will be required to interview with Mr. Scott. Unfortunately, not all applications can be honored because of class space limitations. If you are unable to get in one year, continue to apply. We like that tenacity – it shows you’re interested and want to get involved.
