In the Spring of 2020, CHCCS launched a series of Parent Webinars, ranging in topic from instructional support, technology support, wellness support and safety support. All of the webinar recordings can be found on this page; however, they can also be found on pages for the subjects they support, like our At-Home Learning page and our COVID-19 page.

What is CDM? The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction introduced CDM as an option to allow students to demonstrate a mastery of a course's content and receive course credit and a pass/fail grade by taking an assessment and completing an artifact. Any CHCCS secondary student (middle or high school) is eligible for CDM, and there is no limit in how many CDM courses a student may take. Some courses are excluded from CDM, which include any honors course, AP courses, IB courses, some CTE courses with required clinical settings, ELL courses, and required Healthful Living courses. For a full list of eligible CDM courses, please click here. Students who take CDM courses are still required to take the End-of-Course (EOC) exam for the course. For more information, please visit the CDM FAQ website.
