MESSAGE FROM MS. KIM MCCOLLUM, PRINCIPAL
Maple High School provides alternatives and interventions for students that find traditional comprehensive high school programs unable to meet their particular needs. The mission of the school is to ensure that all students learn, make progress towards graduation, and become thinking, contributing members of society. Maple provides each student with an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) that is followed daily. The students are assigned a homeroom teacher that monitors and supports them as they progress towards graduation. The counseling and classified staff are available to help students find answers to the daily challenges that would otherwise impede their progress towards graduation.
At Maple, we expect each student to show improvement in three areas: academics, behavior, and attendance during each six week session. This year Maple is again focused on providing interventions for students still needing to pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) so they can graduate. This year, we will also be focusing on the Critical Teaching Attributes that help ensure student success as we transition into the new Common Core State Standards. Maple has been responding to the needs of our students by adjusting the goals in our School Plan. We are focusing on scheduling students appropriately so that they are well prepared for state testing. Maple staff is excited to share our program with the Western Association of School and Colleges committee next year and we are working hard to maintain our WASC accreditation status.
Maple staff has had updated training in BEST practices and Response to Intervention (Rti ), and we are dedicated to keeping a safe and effective campus.
As always, Maple staff strives to create a warm, caring “family atmosphere” to promote personal responsibility, self-respect, and overall accountability for student conduct and academic success.
