9-Weeks Grading for High Schools
High Schools will transition to 9-weeks grading periods beginning with the 2023-2024 school year. In shifting to nine-weeks grading periods, the additional instructional days per grading period provide an opportunity for students and families to receive increasingly authentic feedback in sufficient time to benefit from intervention, remediation, or acceleration.
New Dismissal Policy
Beginning with the start of the second semester, students will no longer be dismissed after 2:45pm. This will also include phone calls to have your students called out of class. We want to ensure that your student receives the maximum instruction time. As a note, this is a practice in many of Chatham County Schools already.
Attention parents and community stateholders,
I hope the school year has started successfully for all of you. I am writing this letter to let you know that our school, like many other schools across the district and state, has been designated as a Targeted Support & Improvement Additional Targeted Support (TSI-AT). TSI-AT schools in North Carolina are those that may be achieving at high levels as a school, but have two subgroups that are under-performing - Students with Disabilities and English Language Learners. The intent of this opportunity is to improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, increase equity, and improve the quality of instruction for all students.
You can find the areas of focus, and the outline of our school improvement plan linked below. This letter will be emailed to all families on Sunday, December 3rd.
- Dr. Brad Walston
