Principal's Message

Mrs. Prestsater
Dear AEC Students and Families, 
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We look forward to seeing our students back at the AEC this fall! At the Alternative Education Center, we pride ourselves on creating opportunities, making connections, and showing each other grace. We cannot wait to continue this mantra throughout the new school year. 
The Chaffey Joint Union High School District has partnered with the following to facilitate effective communication between our schools and our families. We want you to have access to these three websites (and apps) that will inform you about your student’s progress and update your student’s records. Take a look at the specifics about each as they are all different. 
1. Aeries Parent Portal

View attendance in real time

Complete your summer mailer - No more paper packets!

2. Parent Square

3. Canvas Parent

2022-2023 Registration Information
Please be on the lookout for a message via Parent Square, in your email or text messages, for our summer mailer. We will no longer be sending registration packets via U.S. Mail. Instead, we will be asking families to complete registration for the 2022-2023 school year online using Aeries Parent Portal. We have been working hard to prepare for this new process by communicating with you on Parent Square and by phone to give you access to the information you need to complete your registration. 
July 1-15 - Bus Transportation Application 
If your student will need transportation to arrive to and from school, please fill out the transportation application by clicking here.

July 1-30 – Online Registration Window Open
Step One: Go to the Parent Portal Login using a web browser on any internet connected device by clicking here.

Step Two: Enter the email address that you provided our school previously and click Next. On the next screen, you will enter your password and click SIGN IN. **Select Forgot Password to reset your password, if needed. 
Step Three: Follow the prompts to complete data confirmation for your student(s). At the end of the process, you will review your entries and select Finish And Submit
Additional Questions: Call Marizol Florez at (909) 460-5626 and ask for Parent Portal support.

Parents and guardians, your role in your student’s development is a huge part of their success. Your involvement helps to build a healthy partnership with the school. If you would like to do even more, please reach out to Dr. Matamala, AP of Achievement, at [email protected] for parent engagement opportunities throughout the year.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions and enjoy the rest of your summer. 
See you soon, 
Mrs. Prestsater
