Dear NMCUSD Families:
We are working thoughtfully on our reopening plan for August and will be contacting each family via personalized phone calls beginning the week of July 13 to July 24 to discuss options that best match individual student and family needs. NMCUSD will offer several options to on-site learning at your student's school that include: a blended learning hybrid model which continues both distance learning and participation in a small instructional group twice a week, four-five hours each day, as well as opportunities for teachers to check in with students on a regular basis, or enrollment at the North Monterey County Center for Independent Study School which offers a homeschool model for elementary age students and a blended learning independent studies model for middle-high school age students, both of which have a teacher who works with students following an individualized learning plan. Please refer to the informational letter and frequently asked questions documents attached and also located on our website announcement.
If you are thinking about the Independent study model option or would like more information, please call Erika Linares at 831-663-6154 ext. 3450 or Valerie Bigham at 831-633-3343 ext. 1210. Letter FAQ's
Educational Options is based on the premise that “one size doesn’t fit all.” Not all students will thrive or reach their full potential in the traditional comprehensive school. Our educational options programs offer non-traditional instructional structures to accommodate different student needs, interests and learning styles. At North Monterey County Unified School District, we have a continuation high school and also a K-12 alternative school of choice.
Central Bay Continuation High School is designed for students who are 16 years of age and older and at risk of not receiving a high school diploma due to a lack of credits, attendance issues, and/or a variety of concerns that place these students at serious risk of academic failure. The Central Bay staff is fully committed and focused on our main objective, which is to prepare all students for graduation. Our instructional program addresses the California State Common Core Standards and fulfills the requirements of the state and our local school board for earning a high school diploma. We offer an online credit recovery program, mental health counseling, academic counseling, teen parenting support and childcare, and career and vocational guidance services as an integral part of our program. Central Bay High School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Accrediting Commission.
