Welcome to the Digital Parent Advisory Board (PAB) message and survey. We have transformed the traditional meeting into an interactive digital format in order to allow greater participation. CLICK HERE for the February survey.
In the January survey:
There were 71 parents who took the January survey on the student graduation requirement, Capstone.
Here are the results:
I understand what a Capstone is. Yes = 59% Sort of = 31% No = 10%
I understand the reason why my student is accomplishing a Capstone in order to graduate. Yes = 43% Sort of = 30% No = 27%
I would prefer that my student was allowed to take a standardized test in order to prove graduation competency. Yes = 45 No = 55
I believe that the competencies learned by accomplishing a Capstone mimic what my student needs to become successful in the professional world.
Salute to the class of 2020! Your’s will be a fantastic year! In addition to working through our new calendar and school start times, we have numerous new courses being offered and a brand new technology classroom located to the school’s immediate west. Additionally, the high school welcomes 17 new staff members, all hired with a vision of experiential and student-centric learning.
Social-Emotional Wellbeing dominates our school culture this year with several assemblies scheduled to help students overcome the trials of being a teenager in an ever-increasing society of stress. We will also put our 60 Link Crew Leaders through a full semester of classroom training to take full care of the freshman transition. If you are the parent of a freshman, ask you student about Tiger Pride Link Crew.
In a world where the only constant is change, and knowing that our students will face change at an even more rapid pace, CCHS is dedicated to preparing EVERY student for a successful career.
