iReady Benchmark Days Winter Benchmark Days have passed. You will get your score reports soon via email. You will also be notified in the email if you scored high enough to be exempted from the Spring Benchmarks. SPRING DATES: Reading: Tuesday, April 9th Math: Wednesday, April 17th At the high school level, iReady helps us to know what you are able to do and what you can work on throughout the school year. Teachers use these reports to personalize learning for you. Of course, your English and Math teachers will be using this information to support your learning, but all teachers (including special education, if applicable) use iReady. Remember our core values at CCA—iReady helps us achieve them! Service to Families Personalized Learning Flexibility Quality Achievement Thank you for your continued participation in the benchmarks as we dive deeper into the learning process this school year. Please keep in mind that students will not have core classes on the dates below but may still have live classes and lessons in their elective courses.

Graduation Pathways: Seniors: Please meet with Ms. Gibson to discuss your graduation standing! The Pennsylvania General Assembly in 2018 enacted a law, Act 158 of 2018, that provides students with a variety of opportunities to demonstrate post-high school readiness. All students have five pathways from which to choose to satisfy Pennsylvania’s graduation requirements (see the below graphic). You can also view a brief video overview of Pennsylvania’s graduation pathways at the following link: https://youtu.be/V1b3GNGI6X4 CCA this spring is offering students two of the five pathways: Keystone Exams and other Alternative Assessments. Please check out the Testing Information icon in the Infographic for more information. Act 158 Graduation Pathways Chart: Important: If your child chooses a non-Keystone Exam pathway to satisfy Pennsylvania’s graduation requirements, he or she is still required to take the Keystone Exams for federal accountability purposes – your child’s performance on the Keystone Exams in no way affects his or her course grades or progress in satisfying Pennsylvania’s graduation requirements. If you have any questions about the Keystone Exams, ASVAB, or any of the other tests CCA offers, please contact the State Testing Team at statetesting@ccaeducate.me.

Homeroom Advisory Homeroom Advisory will be a Zoom meeting with Mrs. Strunk 2 Wednesdays each month from 11:20 am - 11:50 am.

In these meetings, Mrs. Strunk will provide you with some information about what is going on in the school as well as hear about some exciting programs and opportunities. We also play fun Kahoots and have an opportunity to get to know one another better. Please join us! Mrs. Strunk's Zoom Room
