Release of Directory Information update: 2013-09-24The release of personally identifiable information about students is regulated by state and federal law and will not be released without proper authorization. The release of “directory information” is permitted. If you do not want directory information released, you must notify the school in writing by October 27, 2006. This must be done annually.
“Directory Information” is defined as a pupil’s name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height as it relates to being a member of an athletic team, dates of attendance, date of graduation, and awards received. An example of personally identifiable information would include such data as a student’s grades, test scores, social security number, or a list of personal characteristics.
The military services recruiters customarily request “Directory Information” and we are obliged to provide it unless you specifically direct us not to release this information.
Selective Service Registration update: 2013-09-24Selective Service registration, which is required by law, may be done at any post office.
All 18 year old males applying for financial aid must have registered with the Selective Service before any financial aid awards are made.
Registration is the process of providing one’s name, address, phone number, and other information to the Selective Service. All male United States citizens and male aliens residing in the U.S. must register thirty days after their eighteenth birthday. Registrants should receive acknowledgement of compliance from the Selective Service within ninety days.
Student Athletes and the NCAA update: 2013-09-24Athletes expecting to attend an NCAA college and play varsity sports at a Division I or II college must meet certain requirements to be eligible to play in their freshman year. Students graduating from high school and wanting to participate in a Division I college program must have attained at least a 2.000 grade point average in fourteen core courses and have achieved a minimum score on the SAT or ACT based on a variable index scale according to the grade point average earned in the core courses. Students interested in participating at a Division II college must meet the 2.000 GPA requirement in fourteen core courses and achieve a combined score on the SAT of 820 or a sum score of 68 on the ACT.
For many students, the freshman year grades become the most troublesome when trying to meet the NCAA requirements. Parents of freshmen student-athletes are encouraged to emphasize the importance of doing well academically from the beginning of the high school experience with their son or daughter. A strong foundation will give students an opportunity to succeed in later years. For a list of CHS courses that meet NCAA standards, contact your child’s counselor.
If you plan on participating in college athletics you must register at www.ncaaclearinghouse.net.
College Entrance Exams Information update: 2013-09-24If you are planning on attending college, you will need to take the ACT and/or SAT exams. The following is the schedule for this year.
Guidance Newsletters update: 2013-09-24The Guidance Department has been publishing a newsletter for seniors 3 to 4 times every year. Included in the newsletter is valuable information concerning college visits, college applications, scholarships, financial aid, tech schools, community colleges, and the military. Because so many seniors have provided us with their email addresses, much of this information can now be sent through email. Those who do not have email addresses can see copies of the updates we send, as they will be posted on the guidance bulletin board and on the H.S. Guidance Website. Tell your children you want to see any pertinent emails sent from the guidance office and visit the H.S. Guidance link on the left.
