Welcome to the 2014 – 2015 school year at Carmel Valley High School. School starts August 13, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. The staff is looking forward to another outstanding year at CVHS. Our staff consists of Pat Burger (Science & Math), Therese Strutner (English & Health), Mark Anicetti (Work Experience), Maggie Bevier (Art), Chad Hammack (Counseling), Tina Gerow (School Secretary), and Tom Stewart (Social Studies & Physical Education).
The two major events happening this year at Carmel Valley High School are the transition to the Common Core Standards and a visitation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Common Core has been adopted by a majority of the states because of the need to be more uniform with our standards from district to district and state to state. They also appeal to higher order thinking skills with real life applications. Our teachers have been involved with the district–provided staff development training to learn and implement the new standards.
Our recent successful accreditation ran from 2009 thru 2015. We have been working on our self-study report for the last year and look forward to the accreditation team visiting us in March of 2015.
You may have noticed that we are no longer sending out our Carmel Valley High School Newsletters. I will now be writing updates on the front page of our website as another way to keep parents and the community aware of what is happening at our school.
As always, please give me a call if you have any questions.
