Transportation: The Skill Center is located at 4141 N. Regal. Buses from CVHS depart immediately at 7:30 from our bus lanes on the south side of CVHS. Students must be prompt! Busses cannot wait for tardy students. Students are also allowed to drive themselves; however, this option is up to the parent’s/guardian’s discretion.
Students need to find their own transportation to CV on Thursday mornings to catch the 7:30 a.m. Skill Center bus. All District buses run later on Thursdays due to teacher collaboration and are not available to get students to school before the Skill Center bus leaves CV.
Lunch: We recommend students bring their own lunch as time is very limited in transferring between the two schools.
Absences: Absences must be called in to NewTech Skill Center as well as CVHS. The attendance line at the Skill Center is 354-7400 and Central Valley’s attendance line is 228-5101. Since NewTech Skill Center is a Spokane Public School, their calendar is slightly different than Central Valley’s. Holidays and inservice days do not necessarily coincide.
NewTech Skill Center students are still responsible for meeting all high school requirements including:
The Culminating Project
Daily/weekly bulletins, which inform students of school and class activities, pictures, graduationinformation, scholarships, testing information and dates, etc. Most of this information is distributed during Advisory.
Information: Students who have morning NewTech Skill Center will not be in Advisory. Therefore, daily and weekly bulletins are available on top of the NewTech Skill Center file cabinet which is located in the Counseling Center. Each student will have a personalized file. Information in this file can be picked up on a daily basis.
