CCS Newsletter: February 8, 2016
CCS @ Chuck E. Cheese’s: The CCSHSA is sponsoring a fundraiser at Chuck E. Cheese’s in Downingtown on Friday, February 12th from 12:15-9pm.

The CCSHSA will receive 15% from all sales generated during our event.
January Honor Roll: Congratulations to our hard working students who achieved Honor Roll for the month of January!
Keystone Exam Update: Our Juniors and Sophomores can breathe a sigh of relief as Governor Wolf signed into law Senate Bill 880, thereby delaying the need to pass the Keystone Exams as a graduation requirement until the 2018-19 school year. This does not mean that the Keystones have gone away however. Students will still have to take the Keystone Exams for Algebra I, Biology, and Literature to meet federal accountability requirements, but scores on those exams will not impact students' eligibility for graduation until the Class of 2019. This may change as PA Department of Education has been directed via the new law to conduct a thorough analysis of Keystone testing. It is important to remember that these exams cannot sufficiently and equally assess the depth of knowledge that each and every student has, and that your support through contacting your state representatives on this issue has been, and will continue to be our best course of action to ensure that Collegium students graduate with a firm academic foundation, and can recognize in themselves their own uniqueness and talent.
School Store Volunteers: Volunteers are needed before school and during lunch hours on Wednesdays in our elementary buildings. Volunteers must have clearances. Please sign up to help using the Volunteer Calendar.
Uniform Resale Shop Volunteers: Volunteers are needed to sort and shelve donations in the Uniform Resale Shop. Clearances are required. For more details or to sign-up to help, visit the Volunteer Calendar.
School Performance Profile (SPP): PDE recently released Collegium's SPP for the 2014-2015 school year. We received the highest rating possible from PDE for our academic growth rates, graduation rates, attendance rates, PSAT participation, Advanced Placement course offerings and participation, and SAT/ACT College Ready Benchmarks. As a reminder, due to changes in the PSSAs in 14-15, only PA schools that have eleventh grade received an SPP Score for 14-15. The indicators of academic achievement are based solely on Keystone Exam scores for our 2014-2015 eleventh grade class (our current seniors). Elementary and middle school student data is not included in the profile. While we still have room to grow in the area of increasing our student achievement percentages, we are very proud of our academic growth rates.
Emergency Closings: For more information about emergency and weather-related late openings and closings, please review the Emergency Closing Procedures.
