Welcome to CCCS
To ensure maximum learning and safety of our students, staff, and community during the on-going Pandemic, Cesar Chavez Community School currently utilizes unique online learning models and supports.
Typical class size is 15 students or less. Each student is assigned to a mentor to help track their progress and problem-solve challenges. The school hosts up to 200 students at a time. The school is small and community oriented, with all classes housed within the same building.
Student skill levels in math and language arts are assessed at entry and then again periodically using short cycle assessments. This allows CCCS to bring students up from where they are starting and work closely together to supports students in achieving their individual goals.
We work one on one with students to ensure students have an individualized graduation plan and are prepared for their next steps after graduation, including education, training, work, family, and positive community participation.
¡Sí, se puede!
CCCS provides flexible personalized programs for anyone seeking a high school diploma and who would benefit from services and educational programs offered during non-traditional hours.
" It’s a wonderful school, and I’m glad my kids are in the school. The kids love school and want to come. "

This Week at CCCS
Notice to All Community Members: CCCS values its Equity Council in leading toward improving outcomes for “at-risk” students, including Native American students, students with disabilities, students who are English learners, and economically disadvantaged students.
The school is always open to new volunteers interested in serving on this council. If you are interested in serving on this council, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will consider all inquiries and select council members through a fair and transparent process including application and/or interviews.
Student College and Career Opportunities:
Attention Juniors and Sophomores: It is time to sign up for CEC classes!
-Many classes can count as dual enrollment and students may earn 1.0 elective credits in just one traditional semester ( ex. from Sept-Dec for the Fall semester).
- Juniors and some sophomores who have maintained good attendance and grades are eligible. Students must be willing to travel off-campus to their CEC class location (usually on Mountain rd). CCCS can provide bus passes. Students must also obtain written permission from their mentor and parent/guardian to enroll.
-CEC classes need to be scheduled around your CCCS classes.
-You may ask your Mentor to print out an application for CEC and to see the course catalogue of available classes. They are welcome to make an appointment with Ms. Austin, the Academic Advisor, for more information and to turn in their completed applications.
-CEC is extremely popular; turn in your application to Austin Dougherty, the Counselor, ASAP!
