News from CCA
CCA is excited to provide an opportunity to collect feedback from you regarding our teachers and the school environment. The Teacher Feedback data is used to provide feedback to teachers and is part of their performance evaluation done by the Executive Director and Assistant Principals. This survey contains only 5 questions per teacher. The Climate portion of the survey contains questions about the CCA administration team, school communication, academic instruction, school safety, and other aspects of the CCA environment. Responses from the Climate portion are reviewed by the School Accountability Committee, CCA administration, and the CCA Parent Board to guide future improvements to our school. The survey should not take longer than 20 minutes to complete. In exchange for your feedback, you are allowed to enter 2 hours of volunteer time. As a parent-involved charter school, this is your chance to help provide both positive and constructive feedback for CCA teachers, the administration, and the Parent Board. Note that the survey is intended to be filled out by parents, not students . You can complete the survey by clicking here or visiting .

Each year in May, CCA holds an election for our Board of Directors. There will be 3 open positions. 2 of the requirements to be considered are:
  • Potential candidates must attend a minimum of two (2) regular CCA Board meetings during the nine (9) months prior to the April Board meeting. The February & March Board meetings are eligible meetings for this requirement.
  • Potential candidates must interview with at least one (1) current Board member prior to the nomination form submittal deadline.
