Our Vision of Learning

In full support of our district mission and vision, we at SCC High School are committed to...

Creating a learning experience built on creativity, choice, efficiency, and engagement, resulting in high-achieving and creative problem-solvers who take intellectual risks to discover the world around them and maximize their potential.

We Have the Power to...

  • SERVE others
  • show EMPATHY
  • LIFT others UP

Plan for HR/WIN Going Forward - PLEASE READ

We will continue with the process we've used since prior to Christmas break. The goal is to provide the staff and students with a focused method to address academic needs in a very timely manner and guide students to stay on track with their work.

We've all worked hard to create momentum and it would be a mistake to stop the process now.

  • Carolyn will create a second-semester tab - staff should enter second-semester information on that tab
  • We will keep the first-semester tab open as well.
  • At the teacher's discretion, we will continue to push students to complete their first-semester work - especially as the second-semester gets rolling and assignments haven't been given/graded/turned in.
  • If first-semester grades need to be updated due to completed work we can re-open the gradebook (just like in Skyward).
  • It is critical that every teacher record "P" when a student is present and "C" when they are complete. If a student you've requested doesn't show up, please get on the PA and request them. Please pay close attention to this process.
  • If you don't have students during WIN, come to the gym and commons to help with supervision. This is a team effort and we need everyone to pitch in.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Students First.
