News and Announcements

Social Media Threat Resolved
The security issue related to the post on YikYak has been resolved. Appropriate disciplinary action has been taken. We cannot discuss specifics, given restrictions of the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

The student came forward and took responsibility for this situation. Police interviewed the student and concluded that no threat exists and that the matter is now closed.

Safety is of primary importance here at CHAMPS. Our community is an open and inclusive one and we are very proud of that reputation. It’s unfortunate that social media apps like YikYak provide an environment where individuals can post comments anonymously that are not only threatening, but also hurtful to others.

We will continue to work with our students to promote the responsible use of technology and the importance of treating one another with dignity and respect, in person and online.
Congressman Tony Cardenas Speaks to CHAMPS Seniors.

Congressman Tony Cardenas Speaks to CHAMPS Seniors. Rep. Tony Cardenas spoke at CHAMPS Charter High School on October 22 to the entire senior class. Principal Linda Pierce introduced him to the students. She reminded students that two of the school's expected learning results (ESLRs) were being met by the special assembly. Students need to be CHAMPions of Academic Excellence and CHAMPions of Social Justice. Students agreed at the end of the assembly that they learned about the governmental process and how they can be an agent of change. Mrs. Pierce and government teachers, Mr. Braverman and Ms. Morten were proud of the caliber of questions that our students asked the congressman. CHAMPS is very appreciative of the time that Rep. Cardenas afforded our students.
