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.

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.
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.
