Parent Notification - Title I
In accordance with The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), at the beginning of each school year we are required to notify the parents of each student attending a school receiving any Title I, Part A, funds that they may request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child's teacher(s) in core academic subject areas and/or paraprofessional. The notices and information provided to parents must be in an understandable and uniform format and be provided in a language that the parents can understand. Enclosed are model notices that you may choose to send out individually, add to your school's newsletter or website. These notices will serve as parents' notification of rights to request and receive the professional qualifications of their child's classroom teacher(s) and/or paraprofessional.
If you have any questions regarding classroom teachers, please call Kristin Gaeta at (714) 424-7550.
Thank you for your support.

Erin Gruwell to Speak at CMHS
On Thursday, May 23rd at 10:30am, Erin Gruwell will speak to 7th, 8th, and 9th graders in the main gym. Erin Gruwell has earned an award-winning reputation for her steadfast commitment to the future of education. Her impact as a change agent runs deep. So deep, in fact, that her story attracted Hollywood’s attention. In January 2007, Paramount Pictures released Freedom Writers, starring two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank as Erin. The film is based on The Freedom Writers Diary, the New York Times bestseller that chronicled Erin’s extraordinary journey with 150 high school students who had been written off by the education system. Following her presentation, she will remain to sign copies of her book, The Freedom Writers Diary. Books may be purchased for $10 and proceeds will go the her Freedom Writers Foundation.
