ACT-NCR Testing - POSTPONED
***Late Friday afternoon, the ACT announced that the ACT-NCR administration scheduled for 10/2-10/5 must be postponed until at least 10/16. The ACT cited a security concern that had nothing to do with CCMHS and delayed testing at all schools. We have tentatively scheduled to test on 10/16-10/18 following the same schedule and conditions as stated below. THE MEDIA CENTER IS OPEN TO ALL STAFF AND STUDENTS FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK.
All seniors who haven't met the Algebra 1 EOC and/or FSA ELA graduation assessment requirement will participate in the ACT-Non College Reporting exam. Students will test the section(s) that they lack to fulfill graduation requirements (i.e. a student needing only Algebra 1 will not test English or Reading). Any senior that has not completed the pre-bubble session will do so on Monday.
Students will receive triple time to complete each section. However, students will be released individually from the Media Center with a PINK pass as they finish. Students taking the English will also sit for the Reading session.
SAT-NCR Testing on Wed 10/10
PSAT-NMSQT Testing on Wed 10/24

All Teachers- EOC Survey
As part of our partnership with Equal Opportunity Schools, we are asking each staff member to take a 30-minute online survey designed to gather important information. The data will be presented back to us later this winter so that we can better understand how to build on what is already working to enhance equity in our school. Please use your staff email address as your login to the survey (see link below).
Phase 1: Climate Survey
This is the questionnaire regarding staff experiences, equity, barriers to advanced coursework, and staff assets. Often, people who don't teach work with or have their own children who are in classes. We are curious about both teaching and non-teaching staff’s valuable feedback and perceptions about student preparation for AP, the challenge of non-honors courses, and other key issues. For non-teaching staff, many questions have a "not applicable/do not know" option and the few that don't tend to provide an "other" response that staff can use to share that they don't currently teach and so don't have an opinion.
Please be as honest and frank as you can. This information will NOT be tied back to you or used for evaluative purposes.
Submit a Faculty Howlout!
“Faculty Howlout’s will drive our selections for Staff Member of the Week. Each week we will announce all of our HS and MS Coyote staff members of the week! These staff members will have their names announced on the intercom on Friday. At the end of the quarter the Staff Members of the Week will be invited to a special luncheon in their honor! We look forward to receiving numerous staff shout outs so we have many to select from each week!”

Submit a Student Howlout!
Student howlouts will drive our selections for Student of the Week. Each week we will select two HS and two MS students as the Coyotes of the Week. At the end of the week these students will be invited down to the flag pole in the center of the courtyard where we will have a Coyote Flag to be raised on Friday. These students will get the honor of raising the flag each Friday, and will have their names announced on the intercom! At the end of the quarter we will have a breakfast for all of our Students of the Week and their parents.
