Academics Department Vision

CHISD will provide a scholar-centered learning environment with evidence of student voice and choice. In CHISD classrooms, the teachers will be the facilitators and the scholars will guide instruction that is academically challenging and allow for the scholars to engage in discourse. There will be personalized learning experiences that is differentiated based on scholar needs as well as interests. The teachers will use a variety of performances tasks to assess student knowledge of the TEKS as well as skills and concepts that are assessed on college entrance exams. The CHISD scholars will be exposed to multiple career pathways based on their interests and be provided access to industry certifications that prepare them for life after high school. The CHISD scholars will be model, global citizens who are technologically literate, able to think strategically, communicate effectively through written and oral means of communication, be a servant leader through community engagement activities, and collaborate with others to accomplish assigned tasks.
