  • Snow Days

    In case you were wondering ...


    Cascade Christian Schools is a Washington State–approved private school, and abides by the Washington State Board of Education (SBE) regulations for instructional days/hours for all K–12 schools in our state, both public and private. Every year, schools must report to the SBE their compliance with the number of days or hours of instruction for the school year.

    Schools have the choice whether to count instructional days or hours. Public schools typically count instructional school days. They are required to be in session no fewer than 180 days. If they have a late start, they do not lose a day toward their compliance. If they have a “no school” day, it impacts their number of mandated days, so they have to add days at the end of the school year.

    At Cascade Christian Schools, we choose to count instructional hours. To be in compliance, grades K–8 must have a minimum of 1,000 hours of instruction in a school year, and grades 9–12 must have a minimum of 1,080 hours. CCS exceeds these requirements by more than 40 instructional hours at both levels.

    Therefore, if school starts late or is canceled (due to snow or dangerous driving conditions, for example), extra time is built in so it will not impact our compliance—or more importantly, the educational success of our students. The CCS academic calendar also has options for making up hours within the current school year if we experience an excess of “no school” times.

    While missing days is not ideal, it is important to make sure the quality of the student’s education is not impacted, and CCS teachers adjust and prioritize their instruction accordingly.

  • District Professional Development Day Covers a Variety of Topics

    Regularly throughout the school year, faculty from across the district gather for professional development with the goal of maximizing student learning. Topics include curriculum mapping (to align curriculum standards and practices grade-level to grade-level and district-wide), establishing a CCS curriculum roadmap, and meeting as grade-level teams to evaluate student data.

  • Feverishly working behind the scenes at every campus of Cascade Christian Schools is an amazing program dedicated to building the community that is CCS. From early learning centers to high school, there is a group dedicated to each campus.

    Parents for Cascade is a volunteer group of parents who dedicate their time and energy to unite parents through relationship and communication as they support the students, teachers, and staff wherever there is a need.
