Great Turnout for Condor Showcase!

We had upwards of one thousand participants in our Condor Showcase this year. All families received their student's individual packet which included their transcript and the course selection form for next year's classes filled out by the student and their coordinator/counselor in a one on one conference. Additionally, all packets included a Course Guide that is the ultimate go-to for information about how to be college and career ready through careful planning at NMCHS. 

 

For anyone who was not able to attend the Condor Showcase, your student will be bringing home the packet this week, please ask them to review it with you. It has their transcript and courses selected for next year in it! 

 

Finally, your student will be reviewing their six year plan with their counselor coordinator in the next few weeks so they are on track for graduation and beyond! 

 

Go Condors! Good things are happening in Condor Country.

Todas las familias recibieron un paquete individual de su estudiante que incluía su transcripción y el formulario de selección de cursos para las clases del año siguiente llenadas por el estudiante y su coordinador / consejero en una conferencia uno a uno. Además, todos los paquetes incluyeron una guía del curso que contiene informacion importante sobre como prepararse para la Universidad y su Carrera con planificacion cuidadosa en NMCHS

 

Para cualquier persona que no haya podido asistir al Salón del Cóndor, su estudiante traerá el paquete esta semana, por favor pídales que lo revisen con usted. Tiene su transcripción y cursos seleccionados para el próximo año en él!

 

Por último, su estudiante estará revisando su plan de seis años con su coordinador de consejero en las próximas semanas para que estén en camino para la graduación y más allá!

Letter From Mrs. Calero - WASC Mid-Cycle Review

Dear Families and Students,

 

North Monterey County High School underwent a WASC accreditation visit, following an extensive self-study in the spring of 2014, by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC). On July 4, 2014, NMCHS was granted accreditation through June 30, 2020 with a two day mid-cycle visit. The two day mid-cycle visit is scheduled for March 6 th and March 7th of 2017. School-wide critical areas for followup were identified and a school-wide action plan that addresses those critical needs was developed. The mid-cycle progress report and visit should demonstrate that the school has:

 Addressed the critical areas for follow-up through implementation of the schoolwide action plan

 Improved student achievement relative to the schoolwide learner outcomes and academic standards

 

The ACS WASC accreditation process fosters excellence in elementary, secondary and adult education by encouraging school improvement. WASC accreditation recognizes schools that meet an acceptable level of quality, in accordance with established, research-based WASC criteria.

 

Why Accreditation?

 Certification to the public that the school is a trustworthy institution of learning

 Validates the integrity of a school’s program and student transcripts

 Fosters improvement of the school’s programs and operations to support student learning

 Assures a school community that the school’s purposes are appropriate and being accomplished through a viable educational program

 A way to manage change through regular assessment, planning, implementing, monitoring and reassessment

 Assists a school/district in establishing its priority areas for improvement as a result of the perpetual accreditation cycle that includes      o School self-assessment of the current educational program for students

     o Insight and perspective from the visiting committee

     o Regular school staff assessment of progress through the intervening years between full self-studies.

 

The full Mid-Cycle Report is posted on the school web site for your review, or you can attend our Parent Community Meeting on February 22, 2017 where the topic will be the WASC mid cycle review.

 

NMCHS WASC mid cycle visit will take place Sunday, March 5 th through Tuesday, March 7th . WASC Visiting committee members are interested in hearing from parents and community members on Sunday, March 5th at 5:00pm in the Library Media Center.

 

For more WASC information, we encourage you to visit the WASC website at http://www.acswasc.org

 

Sincerely,

 

Caroline Calero

Principal, NMCHS

Carta de la Sra. Calero - Repaso de medio ciclo de WASC

Estimadas Familias y Estudiantes,


La Escuela Secundaria del Condado de Monterey del Norte se sometió a una visita de acreditación WASC, después de un extenso auto-estudio en la primavera de 2014, por la Comisión de Acreditación para Escuelas, Asociación Occidental de Escuelas y Colegios (ACS WASC). El 4 de julio de 2014, NMCHS se concedió la acreditación hasta el 30 de junio de 2020 con una visita de medio día de dos días. La visita de medio día de dos días está programada para el 6 de marzo y el 7 de marzo de 2017. Se identificaron áreas críticas para el seguimiento de toda la escuela y se desarrolló un plan de acción a nivel escolar que aborda esas necesidades críticas. El informe de progreso a mitad de ciclo y la visita deben demostrar que la escuela tiene:


• Abordó las áreas críticas para el seguimiento a través de la implementación del plan de acción de toda la escuela
• Mejorar el rendimiento estudiantil en relación con los resultados del alumno en general y los estándares académicos

• Asegura a una comunidad escolar que los propósitos de la escuela son apropiados y se logran a través de un programa educativo viable
• Una forma de gestionar el cambio mediante una evaluación, planificación, ejecución, supervisión y reevaluación periódicas
• Asiste a una escuela / distrito para establecer sus áreas prioritarias de mejora como resultado del ciclo de acreditación perpetua que incluye


 Autoevaluación escolar del actual programa educativo para estudiantes
 Perspicacia y perspectiva del comité visitante
