Supply Fee Info and Parking

All documents and info are linked in the button above. Should you have trouble accessing them, here are the direct links to the payment options.

NTH@C charges a $60 supply fee for the school year to cover the cost of general schools supplies, field trips, and buses for events. This fee can be paid online through SchoolPay at

*Please bring confirmation of payment to registration via a printout or your phone’s email.

Parking Registration and Fee: This fee and registration is only required for learners who will be driving to school. The fee is $50 for the school year and can be paid online through SchoolPay at*Please bring confirmation of payment to registration via a printout or your phone’s email so that you can be given your parking sticker.

Student IDs

This year, all CISD high school learners will be required to wear a photo ID. Our campus will still have a trust card as well, but I wanted our learners to know that they will need both IDs this school year. If you did not make schedule pickup, you will be ok to wait for an ID until our picture makeup date. If you attend a class at CHS or CHS9 for electives, you can have an ID printed at those campuses (and will need to take care of that as soon as possible).

First Week of School Reminders

We can't wait to have everyone back on Wednesday, August 15th. Please note that although it is a Wednesday, we will start school at the new normal time of 8:50am on that day.

  1. We want to remind learners who start their day at CHS or CHS9 (for a UIL event like band, choir, athletics, etc.) that they need to start their day at CHS or CHS9 before coming to NTH@C. This is true even on the first day of school. It is very rare that you will be encouraged to miss your CHS/CHS9 class.
  2. The shuttle between CHS, CHS9, and NTH@C will be running on the first day of school and will follow normal shuttle times (click on the Bell and Shuttle Schedule Link to see those times). CHS/CHS9 will have a slightly different schedule on day one but the shuttles will run at the published times. Please set your alarm for your shuttle times. They will not announce when shuttles arrive at CHS/CHS9.
  3. We begin the first couple of days at NTH@C in what are called first week projects. Learners will arrive to school on the first day and find their assigned rooms for first week projects on the doors and display boards in the front of the school. While first week projects are going on, learners will still attend their CHS classes at their normal times.
  4. The parent drop off loop is on the side of the building (where the faculty parking lot is located). The front of the building is where our buses drop off every morning. Please do not use the front for drop off/pick up as this will slow down buses and also interfere with staff parking. This is even more true this year as we will have shuttles running between all three campuses throughout the day.

Full FLEX Wednesdays (also known as networking days)

For those of you new to NTH@C, you may not know that we have a completely different schedule for Wednesdays that we refer to as FLEX. On FLEX days, the school day is divided into 30 minute increments that learners will sign up for throughout the day with their various facilitators. Learners will sign up for their Wednesday schedules in advance using a google form that we send out each week. Here is the basic information that you need to know about the schedule for that day:

Networking versus no-networking days:

School will begin at 9:00am on networking/flex Wednesdays. You will report to your 1st or 5th period class at 9:00. If you are not on campus for 1st/5th, you will report to your networking class at 10:30. Networking this year will be from 10:30-12:00.

**All learners are expected to be at school all day on Networking days unless they have a release period.

Wednesdays that we do not have networking will begin at 8:50am.
