|Van A. Phillips, Principal
welcome you and your children to Center Point High School! I am immensely excited about
the 2016-2017 school year. I look forward
to working with each of you as we meet and advance the diverse learning
needs of all of our students.
We have chosen “Rise” as
our theme for the year school year. This theme conveys our diligence in
providing a strong learning environment for our students and it
articulates our unrelenting commitment to advancing our academic pursuits. Despite many curricula renovations, our team persisted and we are recognized as a “School on the Move”.
will begin this new year focusing on Alabama’s College and Career
Ready Standards, PLAN, ACT and Webb’s Depth of Knowledge.
Additionally, we will revisit our academic goals and converge
our 2016 Alabama Continuous Improvement Plan (ACIP) with the Alabama
College and Career Ready Standards Initiative.
All teachers will continue to engage in weekly Professional Learning
Communities (PLCs) These meetings will demand quick responses to questions:
1. What do we want students to learn?
2. How do we know that they have learned?
3. What will we do if they do not learn?
Point High School has received the prestige of being a Title I school
and will be afforded federal funding to supplement our school’s existing
programs. The funds will be used for assisting students who experience
academic difficulties, to purchase additional materials to meet and
advance students’ needs, and to finance parent involvement training
activities and resources. Being a Title I school also ensures that
parents will be involved in a decision making capacity and will be
informed regarding parent rights concerning the qualifications of our
classroom teachers. Below the Parents’ Right-To-Know is provided.
a parent of a student attending a Title I eligible school in the
Jefferson County school district, you have the right to know the
professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your
child. Federal law permits you to request certain information about your
child’s classroom teachers and requires us to give you this information
in a timely manner when so requested. If you would like to receive this
information, please contact me at 205-379-3400.
greatest aspirations for this school year and for our immediate
future are that we focus on learning, have informed parents and attain
our desired instructional goals.
am truly looking forward to working with each of you. Let us all
continue to learn and strive to have a great school year!
