VCHS Upcoming Events!

Thursday, 11/19 - ASVAB Testing
Target audience: 
Students in grades 10-12 who would like a career assessment.  The ASVAB is a test that can help them identify careers that match their interests and aptitudes.  Participation in the test in no way obligates a student to consider military service.  The ASVAB is offered as a career exploration tool, and should
be considered by any student who is unsure of what to do after high school.  The test will take place from 8:30 am - approximately 12:00 pm on 11/19/15.  Location: TBD

Tuesday, 11/24 - College & Career Nite (in conjunction with Parent-Teacher Conferences)
Target audience:  All VCHS
Students and Parents/Guardians.  Representatives from the local colleges, adult trade/vocational schools, and the military will be stationed in our high school lobby, available to answer questions that parents and students might have regarding programs, admission, costs, labor market opportunities, and other
information critical to career planning.  This is a relatively informal event, and we encourage folks to take full advantage of this opportunity to get this info straight from the rep.  This is not just for seniors, though.  Parents and students in grades 9-12 should use this chance to find out what they need to
know now to plan for the road ahead; to make sure they are taking the right
classes for the major they desire, etc.  I will send you fliers as we get closer
to that date.  Location:  HS lobby.  Reps will be here from 3:30 - 7:00

College Credit Plus
(CCP) is the new program that replaces PSEOP (Post Secondary Enrollment
Options Program).  This program allows for students to take college courses
while they are still in middle or high school.  The expenses for the college
courses are typically covered by the school district.  There are benefits and
risks associated with being in CCP, so it is important that parents and their
students learn as much as possible about this before they decide on
Every year we must hold a parent/student information
meeting to provide details about how a student can get involved with CCP.

The CCP Parent/Student Information Night for the 2015/16 year is: 

Wednesday, February 17, 2016
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In the event of inclement weather and/or school closing that
day, the meeting will be held the following week on Wednesday, February 24,
2016, at the same time and location.

Although attendance is not required, it is
HIGHLY recommended.  Every college has different requirements for CCP
admission and procedures, and if a parent/student is not present to get the info
they need from the college reps, they are required to make contact with them on
their own to insure that their student is meeting deadlines,
VCLSD also has a hard deadline for the "Intent to Participate"
form.  Students who are considering doing CCP during the following school
year MUST turn in a completed Intent to Participate form to Guidance by April
1, 2016.  Failure to do so will disqualify them for CCP the following school
If you have any questions, please feel free to call guidance
.  Above all, I want to stress to students the importance of
their parents being present for that CCP Parent/Student Information Night on
2/17/16, and for turning in the Intent to Participate form to Guidance by
BTW - If a student turns in an Intent to Participate form
and then they choose not to take classes through CCP, there is no obligation to
do so.
