Parent Committees

Utilization of parent input is offered through a number of forums at CHS including site and community booster organization groups to ensure a diverse representation. These groups allow for on-going dialogue to take place between school staff and parents. These groups include:

 

1)      School Assessment and Review Team (SART):  meets monthly during the school year to assess and review effectiveness of policies, procedures, programs and curriculum/textbook adoption, which are in place or proposed at CHS.  In March, CUSD conducts the annual SART Survey.  This survey solicits parent opinion on curricular, co-curricular, technology, and other issues facing the district.  SART is the only body entitled to process these surveys; the compiled results are shared with the community.

2)      Cougar Foundation:  a non-profit, tax exempt educational foundation which provides financial support through ongoing fundraisers for all student co-curricular, non-revenue producing activities (e.g., band, choir, drama, debate-forensics, clubs/organizations, academic competitions, athletics [limited], and individuals representing CHS).
