Academic Support Resources
A student's first point of contact for academic assistance should be their teacher. Teachers are available in their Zoom classrooms on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 2:00 to 3:45 and by appointment. Click on the Academics tab above to find teacher contact information listed by subject or refer to the CCHS Faculty Directory at http://bit.ly/CCHSFaculty2021.
Pathways after-school tutoring is conducted via Zoom on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 4:15 pm to 5:30 pm. Session are offered in English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Credit Recovery. Students do not need to sign-up but should come with specific goals to accomplish. Go to http://bit.ly/pathwayszoomlinks for Zoom links and the names of teachers overseeing the sessions.
Students can retake failed tests. If a student fails a test, CCHS grading policy allows them to take an alternate form of assessment after a period of review. The highest score earned on the two assessments is granted.
Students should complete missing or incomplete assignments. Missing and incomplete assignments are the most common causes of students failing courses as these are entered as zeroes (0) in teachers’ gradebooks. Students should speak with their teachers about how to complete any missing and incomplete assignments.
