MARC Families

Dear MARC Families and Students,

Pacific View Charter is excited to start another year on August 29th at 8:30 am with all staff members returning. As with last year, all students will be assigned a master cohort teacher responsible for assuring your student is on track toward graduation and assignment completion. As an independent study school hybrid, assignment completion is vital for continued enrollment at the school. Measures will be taken this year to increase assignment success every week. Students will still receive their assignments and grades from their content area teacher, i.e., English tasks will be assigned by the English teacher. However, their master cohort mentor will be responsible for weekly communication and possibly mandating extra on-campus time to complete late/missing work.

Core classes will be offered 8:30 am-12 pm Tuesday-Friday. Hands-on electives will be provided after lunch till 3 pm for those enrolled. PVCS is excited to return our career technical education courses in the building trades. Moreover, there will be new in-person environmental science and art programs after lunch. Students that are not registered are not able to attend after lunch.

There will be a couple of new changes for this year: 

  1. Families will be contacted on Mondays for on-campus time if a student has missed work.
  2. Students must complete work on school weekdays. The auditor does not accept weekend and holiday work. 
  3. Students need to complete a minimum of 2 assignments per class per week.
  4. If a teacher or staff member calls home to a parent, a parent must reach back within 24 hours if not present.
  5. Progress reports will be available at request from the teacher or a link online at 
  6. All students will be completing 40 min in math and reading in our exact path program. This program allows our students to meet or exceed grade level and have the necessary skills for state testing.

Course enrollment paperwork will need to be completed before school starts. These meetings will be held from August 23rd through the 25th. You will be contacted about the best time to meet with your student’s master teacher to complete this paperwork. Students will not be able to attend or complete online work if these papers are not signed.

We are excited about starting a new school year with new individuals. We expect students to be more involved with their academic progress, leading to better performance and career and college choices.
