Student Achievement Goals

Students will be required to achieve the benchmarks in order to receive a CASHS diploma. Graduation requirements will be reviewed every two years and revised as needed to remain competitive. The CASD will develop and implement more alternative programs to increase student achievement.
A school newsletter will be sent with each progress report and report card. The CASD will maintain an up to date newsletter on the District web page for communication with the public.
