Principal's Message


Greetings Coyote students and families, 

I am excited to welcome you to the 21-22 school year.  It has been an honor to serve as the Newark Unified Principal of Alternative Education for the past four years. I look forward to celebrating my fifth year as your principal and my 26th year in high school education.  As our district has communicated, Crossroads Independent Study will be offering virtual learning for the 21-22 school year for grades K-12. We know that this is a major change but we will strive to provide you a safe and successful school year.  

We know many of you have questions about next steps.  Our K-6 Virtual Academy is new. Our 7-12 program may look vastly different than previously experienced.  I encourage all Coyotes and their parents/guardians to be active participants in all our work together this year.    Please stay tuned for announcements of virtual parent Q&A sessions.  


Julie Calderón

Principal, Alternative Education
