Taft Union High School is offering a one-day “boot camp” to prepare sophomores for the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE), which they must pass to earn their high
must pass to earn their high school diploma.
The voluntary class will be held Saturday, March 5, and is a preparation course for sophomores about to take the CAHSEE for the first time.
Teachers will give instruction in English and math. A free lunch is provided. Parents can call the principal’s office, 763-2336, to inquire if their student has signed up or to sign up their student. Students who sign up will be assigned for both math AND English, not one or the other.
The course was offered for the first time last year and was a success with more than 100 students participating.
English teacher Jackie Peavyhouse said, “Students had the opportunity to review skills and concepts they would need to know for the test. They felt better prepared and knew what to expect.”
Teacher Tom LeClair added, “Investing time prior to the test is a much better investment in time management than taking a remedial class next year!”
