Islander Family Email 2-5-18


Dear Islander Families,


Our network is down and internet connectivity outside wireless affected business and communications at CHS today.  We are working on a resolution; thank you for your patience!


Believe it or not, 9th through 11th graders will be selecting their proposed courses SOON so we can plan for staffing and scheduling for school year 2018-19.  Counselors will hold classroom presentations and schedule registration appointments with individual students.  Be aware that in order to maximize student achievement and minimize course and schedule changes, administrators, teachers, and counselors will be using data, performance, and evidence of effort and motivation to recommend students for honors and AP courses with prerequisites.  We invite you to open dialogue with your child about planning a course schedule aligned with areas of career interest, passion, and motivation, while considering the importance of balancing challenges in the course load  so that healthy life balance and time to pursue extracurricular and family and community activities are possible.  If you have questions about your child’s preparation for specific honors and AP courses, please contact your child’s current content teacher and/or counselor.   In general, we DO NOT RECOMMEND enrolling in summer online courses to accelerate or skip to a next level course at CHS in the fall.


College Board AP (Advanced Placement) exams registration is open for CHS students (Deadline March 16) here:  AP exams are associated with AP courses at CHS and are voluntary.  Students are encouraged to research which AP exams and scores are eligible for credit/advancement at their preferred colleges.
