The Clayton Valley Charter High School Governing Board announced that during its March 1 board meeting, the non-interested Board Members accepted the resignation of Jim Scheible as Executive Director, effective June 30, 2021. Mr. Scheible will continue as Executive Director through the end of the 2020-21 school year.
Clayton Valley Charter High School Governing Board made the announcement with the release of the following letter.
“Jim Scheible came to CVCHS during a time of turmoil and worked to heal relationships within the school and greater community. During his three years as Executive Director, Mr. Scheible was able to guide CVCHS through a successful 5-year charter renewal authorized by the Contra Costa County Board of Education. In addition, Jim headed our successful WASC accreditation renewal process. He also ably led the school through last year’s statewide school closures and back to limited on-campus, in-person instruction.
Since 2018, during his tenure and in collaboration with the Board, CVCHS has increased support to meet our higher expectations such as funding SAT and ACT prep classes, AP exam fees, increases in technology, college visits for 9th graders, and free, in-school NWEA MAP, Practice ACT, and PSAT tests for all students.
Furthermore, CVCHS has been able to fund many facility and safety upgrades on campus, including investing nearly $3 million in improvements during the 2019-20 school year. We have also provided increased wrap-around supports for students including hiring additional counselors, a full-time nurse, a full-time Marriage & Family Therapist, two psychologists, as well as counseling and MFT interns.”
”During the contract renewal process in Spring 2020, I proposed a one-year contract renewal option to the Board. While the final contract was for a two-year renewal, I am choosing that this school year will be my last with Clayton Valley,’ said Scheible. ’I look forward to supporting the transition to a new leader who can build on the foundation set for them to take CVCHS to even greater heights. I want nothing more than for CVCHS and our students to succeed beyond my or anyone’s current expectations. I am privileged to have played a part in this school’s journey and I will support the process of finding someone who can carry the torch forward.”
The Board went on to say “We are grateful to Jim for his service and dedication to Clayton Valley Charter High School. We are proud of the work he has done for CVCHS and look forward to his future achievements.”
The Board will now take on the task of finding a new leader and provide updates as the search
