This week we will receive our  recognition as one of the 10 OSSE All-Star Schools for 2018-19.  On Tuesday, January 22nd, State Superintendent Hanseul Kang and other OSSE officials will come to CHEC  to visit classes, talk with faculty and staff, and present us with our All-Star Banner.

In our December Faculty meeting we looked at our areas of success in the STAR rating,and highlighted successful practices and activities.  Some of the practices and structures different departments identified were:

  • Data Analysis, Action planning and student ownership of data through POP sheets
  • Differentiation for ELL and SPED students, literacy strategies
  • Read 180 and reading intervention for students
  • Wrap Around Services for students
  • Robust Parent Involvement
  • Rigor and AP for All
  • Diverse Faculty and Staff
  • Strong Arts Program serving as “a home base for arts students.”
  • After school and Avance programs
  • Attendance interventions and incentives
  • College and career support

The visitors will be here during the time of portfolio presentations on Tuesday, and will visit classrooms to observe how the presentations serve as a culmination of the learning process.  Following the visits to classes, they will meet with members of the ALT team to discuss our initiatives in more detail. I would l like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for all of your hard work and commitment to our school mission and students.  The OSSE All-Star recognition is a testament to the teamwork and expertise of the entire faculty and staff!


  • Kudos to all teachers, proctors, counselors, administrators and support staff for an excellent team approach to HS Affirm testing last week!
  • Shout out to Mr. Molina, Ms. Lemus, and all faculty and Administrators for an outstanding Parent Teacher Conference Day on Friday.  610 Parents attended!!!
