There's only ONE

Hello Cyclone families,


We hope you and your families are well and enjoying the last few days of summer. We have been busy preparing for the return of students and are excited that your student will be joining us in-person at Chesapeake Career Center.


Enjoy this inaugural edition of The 3Cs Connection, a monthly newsletter for Chesapeake Career Center families and another way we strive to increase communication and strengthen our Cyclone Community. We have included LOTS of important information in this Back to School edition to prepare for the return to in-person learning. Please take a moment to review with your student before the start of school Tuesday, September 7, 2021.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

Our school-wide theme is “CCC is who we are…RISE is what we do”. This theme supports our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) initiative that has been adopted by many Chesapeake Public Schools including the Chesapeake Career Center. During the first few weeks of school, students will learn about the expectations that have been established for all students attending CCC. Our expectations are centered around practices that keep students safe and engaged in learning.

RISE stands for: Respect, Integrity, Safety, and Excellence. Throughout the year, the staff of CCC will continue to review these positive behavioral expectations in order to increase students’ academic achievement and decrease behavior infractions. Students will be eligible for rewards and incentives throughout the year when they display that they have mastered the behavioral expectations. We will also continue to contact parents via phone or email when student behaviors of concern are observed. It is our hope that by informing parents of what is taking place at school, the behaviors can be corrected and student referrals to administration is minimized.
