Affirmative Action

1.Does the Affirmative Action Office accept any complaint?
No. Not all complaints fall under the jurisdiction of the Affirmative Action Office. Under the Uniform Complaint Procedures, the Affirmative Action Office handles complaints alleging discrimination, harassment (including sexual harassment) or any violation of a federal or state law or regulation. Concerns that do not allege any of the above but pertain to hiring and evaluation of staff, classroom assignments, student advancement and retention, selection/provision of textbooks and materials, student discipline, provision of core curricula subjects, facilities, graduation requirements, homework policies and practices, and dress code for examples, do not fall under the scope of the Uniform Complaint Procedures.

No. The District prohibits retaliation in any form for the filing of a complaint, the reporting of instances of discrimination (including reporting sexual harassment) or for participation in any part of the complaint procedures.

An employee who has any functional limitations or restrictions because of a physical or mental disability must contact the Affirmative Action Office to engage in the interactive process to determine whether the essential functions of the employee's job can be performed with or without accommodations. On a case-by-case basis, different forms of accommodations may be discussed.

Alternative Learning Center

1.What is independent study?
Independent study is an alternative instructional strategy for students whose learning types, interests, needs, and apititudes are best accommodated outside the regular, seat based, classroom setting. No student may be required to enroll in independent study, and each student must have a continuous classroom option (see independent study law for more info).
Students are to meet the same standards for core curriculum that seat based students are required to meet. Independent study is expected to be equal in quality to classroom instruction and is therefore a rigorous program. For students in grades 9 through 12, a teacher with a valid California credential provides lesson plans, assignments, and support based on the District's core curriculum and adopted textbooks. The average student can expect to spend approximately 30 hours of work at home per week. He/She also is required to meet with a teacher weekly in a small group setting and attend mandatory support classes for math and or English as assigned. During the weekly appointments the student will receive limited direct instruction, turn in the weekly assignments and take assessments for each subject.
For students in grades 1-8, a teacher with a valid California credential provides lesson plans, assignments and instruction based on the District's curriculum and adopted textbooks in coordination with the parent as a "home school teacher". Parents meet weekly for 1 hour with the credentialed teacher to review progress, present the assignments, and obtain feedback. During this meeting, the child takes his/her weekly assessments. All appointments are scheduled during the hours of a traditional school day.
The independent study program follows a modified traditional calendar. Grades and credits are awarded in alignment with these schedules.
Students have the opportunity to earn the same amount of credits they would at the home school. We have limited opportunities to take extra credits or to "catch up" credits in independent study. The ALC is not designed as a program to make up credits or to accelerate learning.
Independent study students must be highly motivated, self-disciplined, and self-directed. They must possess the prior learning and abilities necessary to acquire knowledge and skills with minimal instruction. Parental support and a suitable learning environment at home increases a student's chances for success.
2.How are grades calculated for independent study work?
The ALC has the same high standards as other schools and follows the grading guidelines set by the District. Students sign course agreements which outline expectations for completion and grades. The final grades are calculated from a combination of homework, reports, projects and test scores. If a student enrolls at the ALC after a semester or trimester starts, drop grades from the home school could be used when determining the grades. If a student comes to the ALC with no drop grades, a zero is averaged for the work and standards not met. We encourage students to come to the ALC at the beginning of a semester whenever possible.

Categorical Programs

1.What are the essential components required for a schoolwide plan?
According to the NCLB requirement, states must describe how schools will close the achievement gaps between major subgroups of students, make AYP and ensure that all students meet the State’s academic achievement standards. The Schoolwide approach to achieving these ambitious goals is based on the premise that comprehensive reform strategies rather than separate, add-on services are most effective. A schoolwide plan describes how the school will achieve the goals identified as a result of a needs assessment. The schoolwide plan must:
• Identify reform strategies that are research-based and provide opportunities for all students to meet proficiency
• Provide instruction by highly qualified teachers
• Offer high-quality, ongoing professional development
• Create strategies to increase parental involvement
• Develop plans to assist preschool students through the transition from early childhood programs at the elementary level
• Identify measures to include teachers in decisions regarding the use of academic assessments
• Conduct activities to ensure that students who experience difficulty attaining proficiency receive effective, timely, additional assistance; and
• Coordinate and integrate Federal, State, and local services and programs.
• Additionally the school must evaluate annually the outcomes and the plan’s implementation to determine whether the academic achievement of all students was achieved.
2.Why do we have to have a school site council? What is the history?
SSCs were established in 1972 under the title of Early Childhood Education with the passage of the School Improvement Program (SIP). It was originally limited to K-3 but in 1977 was expanded to include K-12. The main purpose was to be an agent through which the school community would collaborate to determine how schools would improve instructional programs to ensure student success. In 1981 School Based Coordinated Program (SBCP) and in 1985 the Motivation and Maintenance Program were established - both requiring a School Site Council. In 1996-97 the CA Budget Act required schools to have the SSC develop spending plans for the monies coming in from these various sources.

School instability prevents many foster youth from earning the credits needed to graduate from high school. Most students in foster care transfer schools repeatedly, often mid-year, due to foster home placement changes. Issuing partial credits for all work satisfactorily completed ensures that foster youth are not academically penalized when they transfer schools. These credits prevent foster youth from repeating classes, thereby allowing them to take those classes needed to remain on track for high school graduation.There are two major benefits to this policy, providing partial credits based on assignments completed during the time students are enrolled in a class: (1) it helps foster youth accumulate credits at the same pace as their peers, thereby increasing the odds that they will graduate on time; and (2) it motivates youth to complete assigned coursework even if they will only be enrolled in the school for a short period of time.

Middle College

1.How can my student apply to MCHS? ¿Como se aplica a MCHS?
Student must reside within the SBCUSD boundaries and be enrolled in one of the SBCUSD high schools. They must have a minimum of 325 California Standard Test Scores in Language Arts, Math and Science for the last two years of testing. Students complete an application, which includes current letters of recommendation and school records (including attendance, discipline, grades). Students who meet the eligibility criteria may be interviewed by MCHS and SBVC staff members.
2.When can students apply to Middle College High School?
Students may apply between February 1st and March 31st of each year to be considered for the following academic year. Applications are available online. We HIGHLY encourage you to attend one of our informational meetings held in late February (exact dates and times will be posted by the second week of January).
3.What grades are offered at MCHS?
Grades 10th, 11th and 12th. Applications are taken for students who will be in 10th and 11th for the following academic year. Future 11th grade students are only accepted when there is room.
4.What are the hours of high school?
High School hours are from 11am to 4pm.
5.What hours are the college classes?
Classes vary; students attend before or after high school hours or possibly on Saturdays.
6.Will my student be attending college classes with the regular college students?
Yes. Parents need to be aware that they will be in an adult environment, and be aware of the classes their student intends to take. Classes may contain adult content; some classes may require the student to independently attend field trips.
7.Is a social security number required to be a student at MCHS?
The high school does not require a social security number as part of a student's file. When students apply to San Bernardino Valley College to be concurrently enrolled, the application DOES request a social security number. However, if there is not a social security number available, this does NOT disqualify a student from being accepted to either MCHS or SBVC.
8.Can my student earn an AA Degree along with high school diploma?
It is very challenging to earn an AA degree. However, for students who are focused and motivated, and, who are able to obtain the necessary classes each semester, an AA may be within reach. For students who do not earn their AA degree, the college experience and college units earned while at MCHS are invaluable.
9.Can a student from out of district enroll?
No. MCHS was designed by the Board of Education to provide an alternative for students living within the boundaries and enrolled in SBCUSD schools. Students living within the boundaries of other districts who are looking for alternatives should contact their district office.
10.Can my student be involved in sports, cheerleading, band at the home school?
The primary focus of MCHS is to provide an opportunity to earn both high school and college units. Students are expected to attend high school classes DAILY. Participating in sports or other activities at the home school are not the norm. If practices and/or games are after MCHS school hours (see posted school hours), it may be possible for a student to be involved - however, this is best determined by a meeting with the MCHS Administrator.
11.It there a tuition?
No. However, there is a Student Center fee which is currently $1 per unit: $11 unit max, and Student Representative Fee which is currently $1, paid to SBVC per semester.
12.Is transportation provided?
If a student qualifies for transportation through the district, and parents approve, students are given a monthly Omnitrans Student Bus Pass.
13.What about the cost of college books?
Currently, we have budgeted a maximum of $200 per semester for book purchases. If the books are not in stock on site, the student may purchase them at the SBVC bookstore. All books are the property of MCHS, and must be returned in good condition at the end of the semester.

The process of selecting the student who is capped out is based on the student's enrollment date. If your child was the last to enroll and the class is full, they would be capped out.
6.Why is the purpose of the Thursday minimum days?

If an absence is not cleared, the absence will be recorded as "non verified" and will generate a truancy letter that will be sent to your home. After a second truancy notice is issued, you may be sent to a Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) at which time you may receive a citation from an officer.

A lunch calendar is sent home with each student at the end of every month with the lunch schedule for the upcoming month.

Opportunity Program

1.How are students assigned to Opportunity?
Students who are placed into Opportunity must go through a process to review all known information and particular student needs, consider options, and select appropriate placement. This includes:
  • Review of the student’s cumulative records for academic, health, and behavior
  • School Site Team meeting to identify and monitor interventions and support for the student
  • Documentation of parent contact, inclusion, and response
  • Consideration for other referrals (counseling, learning disabilities, outside agencies)
  • IEP meeting, if the student is special education
  • Student Attendance Review Team (SART) meeting for students with habitual truancies or tardies
  • Intake meeting with student, parent, teacher, counselor, and administrator to set specific and measurable attendance and/or social skills goals
2.Is the program voluntary, or can students be assigned to Opportunity?
Yes, students may be assigned to Opportunity. The school must make every effort to contact and meet with the parent prior to assigning. Parents will be invited to an Assessment Team meeting to discuss concerns, interventions, and goals.

After the Assessment Team meets, the school may decide to assign a student to Opportunity.

Notice shall be in the primary language of the parent or guardian and shall request that the parent or guardian respond within ten days.

In cases where the site has documented at lease three attempts to reach the parent, a writing notification will be mailed (or delivered) of the intended date of placement.

3.What happens when they are in Opportunity and when can my student return to regular mainstream classes?
Opportunity classes are small, and have both a certificated teacher and an instructional assistant to help your student in both academics and social skills.

During your intake meeting, a contract will be written and signed by the teacher, the student, the parent, and a site representative (usually an administrator or counselor). After reviewing the concerns, the team will write three main goals that the student must document continued success in.

Classrooms maintain a strong emphasis on discipline. Each site teaches, reinforces, and documents social skills that the students will need to attain their goals and to be successful once they return to regular classes.

Usually, a student passes through several levels of competency in their social skills, which demonstrates that the student has acquired the skills necessary for success. The length of stay in Opportunity is determined by the student’s continued level of mastery of their goals. A point system is used to determine their eligibility to return to one or more regular classes. An exit meeting will be held, and follow-up will be established to help the student with a smooth transition.
