    Meet the new staff at the Alternative High School.  We are excited to welcome them into our learning community.

    Cameron Crawford

    Mr. Cameron Crawford

    English 9, 10, 11, 12, Journalism, HR 6

    I am beyond thrilled and grateful to join the Cherry Hill Alternative High School community. Originally from the state of Oklahoma, I have lived on the East Coast since 2003. I started my career in international development and government relations in Washington, DC, but discovered along the way that my true passion is teaching and making an impact in the lives of young people. My teaching career began in Philadelphia, and during that time I earned my Master of Education (M.Ed) in Special Education degree. I am a singer and writer of poetry. I hold firm beliefs and interest in redemption, equity and justice. My own proud identity as a Persian-American makes me uniquely poised to see the world from a different perspective. I am happily married and a proud father of an inquisitive, creative and caring six year old daughter.

    Ms. Imani Shivers

    Educational Assistant

    I am a recent graduate from Rutgers University. There, I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Dance from the Mason Gross School of the Arts Dance Department. I also graduated with a minor in Sociology. I have been a dance instructor for six years, which has allowed me to teach and influence young minds in a positive way. I am  also a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I am very excited to be a part of the Alternative High School, and look forward to the school year.

  • Meal Distribution Available for All Students through School Closure; State Offers Guidance for Families with P-EBT Card Issues

     Brown bag lunch

    Continuing through the summer until August 31, 2020, our district will provide meals free of charge to ALL STUDENTS IN CHERRY HILL. On Mondays, students may receive 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches from 10 am to noon. On Wednesdays, students may receive 3 grab-and-go breakfasts and 3 grab-and-go-lunches from 10 am to noon. Choose your pickup site: Cherry Hill High School East or Cherry Hill High School West.

    Please be sure to have your student ID number or proof of Cherry Hill residence, such as a driver's license with Cherry Hill address, ready to enable pickup. 

    Questions? Email publicinfo@chclc.org

    Several families have contacted the Cherry Hill Public Schools concerning incorrect or missing P-EBT cards from the State of New Jersey. We have been in touch with officials from the NJ Department of Human Services who offer the following guidance:

    "The best way for parents to reach out is through the NJSNAP website inquiry form if their questions are not already addressed in the  FAQ. Our main number should not be used for P-EBT inquiries as the volume is too high to accommodate and prevents unrelated P-EBT callers from being able to get through. We are responding in the order received so we ask that they please be patient and not submit multiple inquiries as this slows response time.“
