As an educator Dan shaped students as a science teacher, coach, department chair, and Dean of Students. As an administrator in Moline, Dan has worked with students, staff, and parents at John Deere Middle School, Roosevelt Elementary, and Moline High School to create educational environments that provide learning for all students. His mantra of “Learning For All” continues to provide a focus on what will help all students be successful.

I value each individual and the daily interactions with students, staff, parents, and community members. This award represents the partnerships we have built with the school community and a shared vision for all students,” Dan McGuire said.

School Safety

Moline High School is pleased to announce that for the 2016-2017 school year we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System to build on campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students safe is knowing who is in our building at all times. The Raptor System will better allow us to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our school.


Upon entering Moline High School, all visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. The Raptor system will check the national database to identify dangerous or wanted individuals and sex offenders. It is important to note the Raptor system only scans the visitor’s name, date of birth and photo for comparison with the national data base. Student safety is our highest priority and the Raptor Visitor Management System provides a consistent way to deter people who may present a danger to our students. Therefore, all visitors to the school must be scanned into the system and obtain a visitor badge. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support of enhancing school safety protocols at MHS.
