Apply to Become a MCHS Reader / Field Expert!

Apply to be a Model Schools Reader Thank you for your interest in being a Reader/Field Expert — either as a first time reader or a seasoned reader. The California Department of Education (CDE) and CCEA Plus have a unique partnership to empower and equip all participants to be successful contributors and evaluators at the Readings. Learn more about the Model Continuation High School (MCHS) program. One is eligible to apply as a MCHS Reader / Field Expert so long as they are CCEA Plus members and in good standing.

The MCHS Reader/Field Expert helps to evaluate and qualify MCHS applications at Southern California (Region 1 and 2) and Northern California (Region 3 and 4) MCHS Readings. Readings take place in the month of September — usually on a Friday. Qualifying schools at the Readings will receive a site-visit, wherein readers/field experts will participate as a model school visiting team.
