Tribe Family:
Welcome to the new year! My name is Richard Parris. I serve as your Assistant Principal in charge of discipline and attendance. This is my second year in this exciting role. To serve the district in this capacity is one founded upon honor, pride, positivity and determination to make each day a success in the lives of our student body.
The 2023-2024 school year embarks on a renewed focus for all stakeholders at CUHS. My goal continues to focus on student needs as our Chowchilla community demands. I am looking forward to seeing each and every one of our students reach their potential this school year. It is my belief that every student, parent, teacher, and team member of CUHS and CUHSD plays a vital role in ensuring
student’s reach their full potential in every aspect of life as a student here. The expectation is for everyone to rally around one another to assist in a student’s success coming to fruition in every possible manner associated with CUHS.

As your Assistant Principal in charge of discipline and attendance, the opportunity to assist our students and work with the community to build a safe learning environment is always at the forefront of my position. With that said, our district-wide goals of improving student attendance, decreasing suspensions and exploring new ways to positively enhance our school culture is pivotal each day. Being a member of the Tribe team, I am honored to work for and with this student-centered staff. Each person strives daily to improve the learning experience of our student body.

In my department, we are diligently working to reach new district goals with regards to improved student safety through the use of the Minga app, student’s daily attendance increasing and weekly follow-up meetings with our at-risk students as outlined with PBIS/MTSS. By focusing on these areas which our community believes are pertinent to the success of all student’s, our goals are going to be reached as outlined in our mission and vision statements.

I look forward to connecting with all shareholders as we navigate through this year. I have an open-door policy so always feel welcome to contact me via telephone, computer or in-person.

Roll Tribe!

Learning Director, Justin Woltz


Dear Tribe Family,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the Vice Principal of Curriculum Instruction and Assessments at Chowchilla Union High School.  I am honored to be in this position, and am looking forward to assisting Mr. Stockton and making this a great school year. I truly believe that this is “A Great Place to Learn”.  Chowchilla High School is a special place for our students to excel in academics while exploring many career paths in our exciting Career and Technical Programs.

 Before taking this role as Vice Principal, I have had the pleasure of teaching social science, special education, and working as a district administrator of special education    throughout the valley. As a teacher, I have witnessed the extraordinary ability of our students here in the central valley, and I look forward to working with our student body to have the most rewarding education experience possible.

I am very fortunate to have the support of an amazing team here in Chowchilla and an embracing, supportive community. Together, the Chowchilla High staff and the Community have built a foundation to enable each student to succeed. My mission is to empower our students to become productive citizens and lifelong learners. I cannot stress the importance of the high school years, where students need to embrace high academic standards, but build their discipline and work ethic that is needed for life after graduation. Teachers, support staff, administration, parents and students need to work together to make high school successful for every student that enters our doors. My door is always open and I look forward to meeting all of you as the school year progresses.
