Educational Affairs Presentation December 2022

With co-chair Julie Haywood presiding, the Educational Affairs committee convened for its monthly meeting in person and via video conferencing on Tuesday, Dec. 20. The agenda included two items:


Cheltenham High School Approval of New Courses


CHS Vice Principal Dr. Ben Hammond presented three courses for approval for the 2023 -2024 school year: Advanced Placement African American History, Sewing & Fashion II, and Unified Choir. Cheltenham High School was selected to pilot the College Board's Advanced Placement African American History course. Cheltenham High School will participate in the pilot for the 2023 - 2024 school year. Sewing & Fashion II and Unified Choir will expand CHS’s elective course offerings allowing students to enhance their skill development. 

Cheltenham High School Assisted Targeted Intervention Plan Update


CSD Director of Secondary Education Charlene Collins provided an overview of Cheltenham High School’s Assisted Targeted Intervention Plan (ATSI). Cheltenham High School received this designation in the 2017 - 2018 school year due to special education students’ rate of attendance and academic achievement in mathematics and literacy. CHS has implemented corrective measures to address these areas of concern. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, assessment data is unavailable for all key indicators; the district is awaiting notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Education on the revised exit criteria and future designation for CHS.

The next Educational Affairs meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. in person and via video conferencing.
