This form is to be used by principals of continuation high schools to indicate their intent to submit a 2019–20 Model Continuation High School (MCHS) Application. Submission of this completed form is required in order to be considered for model school status.

Submitting this form
does not obligate the principal to submit an application. In order to submit this form, all applicable questions must be completed. Please note that only schools meeting the eligibility criteria are invited to apply.
School Eligibility Criteria:

1) The school is established as a “continuation high school” according to California Education Code sections 48430–48438.

2)
The school's average daily attendance (ADA) for Previous Year, Second Principal Apportionment (P2) is at least 75 percent.*

3) The school is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

4) The school's WASC Visiting Committee Report verifies that the school has completed a full self-study, which typically involves a three and one-half day visit.

Note: A school may request a waiver if the school does not meet the 75 percent P2 attendance eligibility, but the applicant feels the school should be recognized as a model school.
The deadline to submit this form is Thursday, June 27, 2019.
