With over 25,000 students, the District is the fourth largest high school district in California. It has eight comprehensive high schools, a continuation high school, an online high school, a community day school, an adult school, and alternative programs. The District offers a wide variety of instructional options that provide a quality education for each student, every day. The District's well-prepared, dedicated, and highly qualified teachers and support personnel are second to none.
The Chaffey Joint Union High School District Board of Trustees are steadfast in the belief that "Nothing is more important than student learning and their achievement."
Our daily purpose encompasses our commitment:
"To provide student learning, and ultimately their achievement, of the prescribed curriculum that takes place in the classroom under the direction of the teacher." The Chaffey District supports this daily act. We realize that our efforts uniquely influence the future of our community and of this nation, and we are passionate about doing whatever it takes to prepare students to be successful and contributing citizens of the 21st century.

The Chaffey District has provided a quality education for high school students in the area since 1911. As the District continues to grow and progress, we are poised to meet the challenge of providing the finest quality education possible for every student.

Superintendent's Message

Mat Holton, Superintendnet
Dear Chaffey District Parents and Guardians,

I hope you are well and that you were able to find time during this unique summer break to enjoy your families and relax. I would like to welcome you, in historic fashion, to an upcoming school year that will be like no other. And to our incoming Freshmen Class of 2024, I wish you a special welcome. Although we will initially meet virtually, we look forward to the day we will meet you in-person when we are able to physically return!

We will start the school year in a temporary Distance Learning Model, and your students will begin their first day, remotely, on Wednesday, August 5th.

Prior to the start of school, students should log in and create their Canvas accounts. Canvas is our District’s new student learning management platform that is identical to what most colleges use for their students and distance learning. This will be our primary method of communication and delivery of instruction as teachers engage with students in a much more robust way than what occurred last Spring, when we were abruptly shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we begin the year, students will be required to virtually attend classes and complete their assignments to earn their grade.

For directions on how to create a Canvas student account, please visit the District’s website at Click on the Resources tab, and you will be given directions on how to establish your account and log in. Parents, you can also create accounts by going to the District website, under Parent Resources, to set up your own Canvas account. This account will link with your students so that you can monitor your students’ coursework and progress. You should have received your class schedule in the mail that indicates your student ID, which is necessary to log into Canvas. If you did not receive your schedule, or if you have any questions, please contact your school.

On Wednesday, students will log in at noon and visit the icon for their first-period class. Teachers will have posted directions and information for how class will be conducted on that first day of school. Tomorrow’s simple objective is to have students virtually meet their teachers and understand how school will work in a virtual classroom that is different than how we conducted school in the spring. A schedule will be provided to you through your principal.
The start of this school year will be far different than any traditional first day of school in the history of this District, but it doesn’t mean that we aren’t excited to welcome each student back to our schools and provide them with the academic and emotional support we have been committed to providing for them in a traditional setting. I look forward to partnering with all of you to make sure that students are engaging in their schooling in healthy and constructive ways, and I look forward to our Senior Class of 2021 leading the way! We are doing everything we can to make sure students are safe and get to learn in healthy and supportive environments, and we will keep everyone informed as schedules and local and State directives shift.

I wish everyone a successful start to the school year. We recognize all that you are doing, and we sincerely thank you!

Stay safe!

Mathew Holton, Ed.D.
