PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

A Win for CHS Students


The STAAR EOC scores for our re-testers were revealed this week from the state. Nine CHS students received great news made possible because of a proven instructional system that has yielded growth. Thank you teachers for your work with our students (you know who you are) and I ask that you continue to build on this small win for CHS students!


Have a great week and as always... It's a Great Day to be a Chieftain!

Semester Exam Exemptions

Students may be exempted from semester exams each semester under the conditions outlined below


  1. The student maintains a 96% attendance rate through the semester.
  2. The student must be passing all courses for the semester.
  3. The student has no major discipline defined as no more than four detentions, So Saturday School, no ISS or OSS moving forward.
  4. The student must be free of fees and fines from the Library.
  5. Students who are exempt but choose to take a semester exam can only improve their grades. In this case, the semester exam cannot negatively impact the semester average.


It is the student's responsibility to maintain all qualifying criteria moving forward. Failure to do so will disqualify the student's eligibility for any exemption.
