A Message from Our Principal
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
Welcome back to the 2019–2020 school year! We are excited to get back into our daily routines, programs, and activities with our students. Please see below for important information:
As an update to our lunchtime policy, any 10–12th grader who is late to class from lunch three times will lose their off-campus privilege for one week. A 4th tardy will result in an off-campus privilege loss of one month and a 5th tardy will result in a loss of privilege for the rest of the semester. In addition, behavior incidents may also lead to a loss in lunch privilege.
As a reminder to the class of 2020, seniors must have earned 260 credits (in the correct subject areas), have no suspensions, have 95% attendance, passed the CAASPP with “standards met” or standards exceeded”, and pass the upcoming exit interview during second semester. We only review appeals for graduation for attendance issues. Any suspension during a student’s senior year will guarantee a loss in ceremony participation.
Corcoran High School continues to focus on literacy and numeracy in preparing students for CAASPP, college, and careers. We are working with students to be more reflective of their learning and their goals through personalized learning, Kagan Structures, appropriate use of technology, and 21st century skills. With this said, students, please note that there are a variety of career pathways and dual enrollment college courses available to you at Corcoran High School.
I want to thank our school families and our community for your continued support. It is always with your help that our students thrive with continually increasing test scores, reduced behavior incidents, and a positive school climate. If you have a few moments, please feel free to complete the survey directly to the left of this message.
Attention Class of 2023: Effective at the start of the 2017–2018 school year, freshmen may not leave campus at lunchtime. Please plan ahead.
Atención Clase de 2023: Esto toma efecto al principio del ano escolar 2017–2018, los estudiantes del grado nueve, no van a poder ir fuere de la escuela durante la hora de lonche. Favor de planear adelante.
