News, Information, and Updates for Primary, Discovery, and Millennium Charter Schools
A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods
TLC families, students, staff and community members,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your unwavering support as I navigated my way through my first year as CEO of the Tracy Learning Center schools! This year has not been without its challenges, but I see each hurdle as a learning experience and an opportunity to implement new strategies for improvement. I have been a part of this organization since 2004 and looking back over the years, I have come to appreciate everything that makes us a charter school- from the way we embrace change, to our innovative teaching styles, to our amazing staff who go above and beyond everyday to provide enriching lessons that challenge our students at the appropriate level of intervention. We are a school of choice and I thank all of you who believe in our vision and embrace the Tracy Learning Center schools!
Enjoy your time off, and see you next school year!

FAST TRACK 2022 – Monday, May 23rd to Friday, June 24th
FAST TRACK is a MANDATORY program for all high school students which gives them the opportunity to take ten credits of a course to remediate or accelerate, and/or to take a college course. During FAST TRACK, students take a full year (two semesters) of a course for 4.5 hours a day (including a fifteen-minute break) for five weeks beginning Monday, May 23rd to Friday, June 24th. The day begins at 8:30AM and ends at 1:00 PM.
ATTENDANCE: Attendance during FAST TRACK is different from the school year in that students are only allowed to miss 8 hours of time during the entire FAST TRACK. Tardies count as one hour and a day is four hours. Any combination above 8 hours results in a need to withdraw and an F grade for the affected semester. There are no excused absences during FAST TRACK. This is necessary in order to meet the state requirement for issuing credit for a year’s worth of a course. Students may not miss more than two days (8 total hours). Four tardies are the equivalent of one day of school, therefore; two days absent and one tardy will result in a failing grade.
Letters have been mailed home including additional details as well as your child’s FAST TRACK class.
LUNCH: Ordering lunch is slightly different this year. All students should have a lunch account to pay for lunches. To register, go to https://www.mymealtime.com/ and create an account. You must choose/type in your specific school (Millennium High School) and you will need your student school I.D. number. If you have any difficulties creating an account online, money can still be added to your account by either cash, check, or debit card. You can drop off payment in the lunch dropbox that is located in the main office.
Lunch is ordered the day before it is delivered to class.
The Google Classroom code is SEUNSOU.
