Covid-19 updates from the Executive Director

July 31st, 2020 COVID-19 Update -

20/21 School Year. 

Dear Students and Families,                                 Lee este mensaje en español

 

          I want to thank all of you for reaching out and providing us with feedback through our electronic and phone surveys.  At this time, based on Denver Public Schools (DPS) decision and health expect recommendations, we have made the decision to continue with remote learning until at least October 19th, through the end of the first quarter.  We will continue to work hard to gradually and safely welcome back students into our buildings, when health conditions allow.

          Our guiding priority throughout these extraordinary times has been, and will continue to be, ensuring the health and wellness of our community.  We have heard from many of you that you do not feel safe and we know that the pandemic is disproportionately impacting communities of color.  We will continue to work closely with DPS and local health organizations to get the very best information on when we can safely open our doors once again.

          It still remains extremely important that you register as soon as possible to secure your seat for the 2020-2021 school year.  This registration also helps us secure funding for our advocates and teachers who are doing phenomenal work at the moment to provide excellent instruction and services.  Please use the following link to access our online registration: https://www.coloradohighschoolcharter.com/.  If you would like more information from your student’s advocate, please use the contact information listed below.

          Thank you for your continued support through this period of uncertainty. Please let us know how we can best support you and your family.

 

Thank you,

 

Clark P. Callahan,

Executive Director of Colorado High School Charter

Joint Statement from the Board and Executive Director, Clark Callahan. 

Like many others following the death of George Floyd, CHSC is angered, disturbed and broken hearted. Our country has waited far too long to recognize and eliminate the racism that has plagued our nation since its founding. As an organization, we are committed to the work of eradicating racism, seeking justices and empowering all people. Now, more than ever, we will dedicate our assets, time and energy to this important work and to the continued education of the many diverse communities we serve. 

Greg Mestas, Cyndi Bush-Luna, Michael McArthur, Nneka McPhee, Nick Bucy, Stella Yu, Phyllis Kadison and Clark Callahan. 

Mensaje de parte de el Director Ejecutivo y Junta Directiva. 

Como muchos otros después de la muerte de George Floyd, CHSC está enojado, perturbado y con el corazón roto. Nuestro país ha esperado demasiado tiempo para reconocer y eliminar el racismo que ha afectado a nuestra nación desde su fundación. Como organización, estamos comprometidos con el trabajo de erradicar el racismo, buscar justicia y empoderar a todas las personas. Ahora, más que nunca, dedicaremos nuestros activos, tiempo y energía a este importante trabajo y a la educación continua de las diversas comunidades a las que servimos.

Mission

 

Colorado High School Charter is transforming the alternative education experience by igniting the potential within each of the diverse young people we serve.  CHSC ensures students’ personal and academic growth by creating tailored curricula, a supportive school environment, and community partnerships. We empower our students to succeed in life and positively contribute to their families and communities by offering them the freedom and resources to pursue a post-secondary path aligned with their individualized goals.

Vision

 

 

 

 

Schools that empower people

 

Core Values

 

The Core Principles of CHSC guide and ground our work together as a community. We believe when these principles are practiced with fidelity and discipline they lead to profound growth and results for young people.  We encourage anyone who observes us not living up to these core principles to let us know so we can continue to improve our work.

  •  Relationships:We believe that learning happens when relationships are built on trust and respect. 

  • High Expectations: We believe that by expecting the most of ourselves and those around us and holding each other accountable leads to our greatest potential. 

  • Growth: We value contiuous improvement of ourselves, each other and our practices. We seek and apply feedback, reflect on our practice, maintain a can-do positive attutude, approach changes and challenges as opportunities to learn and celebrate each of our unique strengths in support of continuous improvement. 

  • Inclusivity: We believe that by embracing and learning from all people we become better, produce higher quality work and become more empowered. 

  • Wellness: We know that to perform and grow, we must feel safe and cared for, so we work continuously to  holistically meet the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental, occupational and intellectual needs of everyone in our community. We believe that healthy people perform better. 

  • Third...Fourth...Fifth way: Our students embody this value and as partners with them, we work to emulate the practice of finding ladders, bulldozers and other solutions to the vast number of walls, roadblocks and problems we encounter.
