CHS to Present at NEASC Conferences!

We have great news!

Colchester High School has been invited to present at the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) Fall 2013 and Fall 2014 conferences!

NEASC Deputy Director George Edwards requested CHS’s presence at the Seventh Annual NEASC/CPSS Showcase of Model School Programs in Westford, Massachusetts, on October 18 to present the school’s work on personalizing the academic experience for students through its AT program—formerly the teacher advisory (TA) program. (CHS’s long-running TA program underwent a significant transformation in time for this school year to include a clear emphasis on academics and connection with students’ regular class day. The program, renamed AT—to emphasize academics, assistance, and advising time—is the result of a collaborative, comprehensive analysis of the program among parents, students, and faculty using a wide variety of approaches. It has a more consistent schedule and focuses much more intently upon advancement of learning, assistance with skills, and meaningful engagement in advising.) Assistant Principal Justin Brown and four members of the CHS AT Committee will represent CHS in discussing the program’s newly implemented and highly effective transformation at the October 18 conference.

NEASC also requested CHS’s presence at the Eighth Annual NEASC/CPSS Showcase of Model School Programs to present the school’s work in developing a positive culture, climate, and beliefs for its learning community.

Colchester High School’s leadership and programming is gaining national attention! On July 30, Principal Amy Minor accepted the prestigious 2013/2014 Vermont Principal of the Year award from the Vermont Principals’ Association. And CHS once again ranks among the top 5 percent of the nation’s high schools according to US News and World Report, giving CHS its silver medal designation.
