The ASVAB Career Exploration Program is a widely used and respected career development program and test. The ASVAB will be available, free of charge, to all Cherry Hill West students on October 19, 2018 in grades 10-12.
Developed by the Department of Defense, the ASVAB Career Exploration Program helps students to identify potential careers in both military and civilian arenas. Although the military uses this sort of testing to help identify occupational specialists, students who plan to attend college or technical school will also benefit from this program, as it helps them to focus their interests on relevant career paths.
An ASVAB representative will be at Cherry Hill West on Friday, October 19, 2018 to begin the program at 7:30 AM. Because the three hour test requires students to miss some of their regular classes, we are asking for parental permission prior to allowing your son or daughter to participate. Please have your son or daughter see their guidance counselor for a permission slip.

The Cherry Hill Public Schools seeks parents to become part of the new Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG), which will provide opportunities for parents and community members to offer input to the District on critical issues relating to students with disabilities. SEPAG will be composed of one parent/guardian from each of the 19 schools in the District, as well as a parent/guardian representing out-of-district students. As directed by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE), the SEPAG is not an advocacy group or a PTA/PTO. The NJDOE's guide to developing and conducting a SEPAG may be found on their web site. A flyer with details about the CHPS SEPAG is available online. Additionally, a letter regarding the group formation process as well the interest form to be considered for the group are available online. The deadline for submission is October 12, 2018.

The Board of Education on March 13, 2018 adopted a Resolution calling for New Jersey Commissioner of Education Dr. Lamont Repollet and New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy either to put forth a spending plan that fully funds the School Funding Reform Act (SFRA) or, in the event the SFRA cannot be fully funded, make sure the funds available for state aid to schools be fairly and proportionally divided per the SFRA. The resolution further resolved that if full redistribution is not possible this year, that sufficient additional monies be allocated to Underadequacy Aid to close the adequacy gap. A copy of the resolution has been present to the New Jersey Commissioner of Education, the Governor of New Jersey, the State Senator and the State Assemblypersons from Legislative District 6, and the Mayor and Council President of Cherry Hill.
