Ms. Marla Stiefvater

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Churchill HS.  This is my 22st year with NEISD and my 9th year at Churchill High School!  In addition to being the ACHIEVE coordinator, I support NEISD by being the Achieve Credit Acceleration teacher at Churchill HS.  Additionally, I was selected to work as a Homebound teacher to service those students needing support while at home due to extenuating circumstances.  It's a great year to be a Charger.

 ** Achieve classes are online classes that support students that have fallen behind their cohort. Students must be referred by their counselor, complete and application, and pass an interview in order to be admitted. Most students enrolled are at the junior and senior levels.  This is not te same as Acceleration.  In Achieve, students failed the class at least once and take online courses during the school day (ACHIEVE period).

** Achieve Acceleration is a program that allows students to achieve credit outside of the standard school hours in order to catch up with their cohort and graduate on time. The classes are for initial credit. The online classes must be completed outside of standard class times with online (ZOOM) or inperson testing.  I am the only Achieve Acceleration teacher for Churchill.  Please email the school counselor (https://www.neisd.net/Page/21156) or myself (mstief@neisd.net) with questions about the program.
