Executive Director Jim Scheible
Jim Scheible has been a dedicated educator for over fourteen years – as a dynamic classroom teacher and seasoned school administrator. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California, San Diego and earned his teaching credential from Pace University School of Education in New York City. In 2016 Jim cleared his California teaching credential and in 2017 he earned his administrative credential with the Reach Institute for school leadership.
Scheible’s peers consider him “a great organizational leader and strong collaborator committed to building positive relationships with all stakeholders through effective communication.”
As Executive Director, Scheible oversees day-to-day operations, provides support to the Governing Board and manages long term planning, all of which prepare CVCHS students to become first-class citizens with a world-class education, instilling timeless principles and fostering a culture of excellence with rigor, relevance, and relationships.
Scheible began his professional career in 2004 as a Science and Math teacher at New York City’s PS 28 in the Bronx. In 2006, he returned to his home town of Sacramento where he was hired by St. HOPE Public Schools to teach 6th grade at PS7. Scheible became a lead teacher the next year and then quickly advanced to K-8 and high school administrative roles including Vice Principal, Principal and system Superintendent. Under his leadership, St. HOPE Public Schools consistently increased academic results for underserved students and provided a high-quality, rigorous college preparatory education. In his first year as principal, PS7 was recognized by the California Charter School Association (CCSA) as the “Charter School of the Year” in the state.
Scheible is a visible administrator and states that the best part of his job is interacting with students in all areas of the school. Encouraging students to be kind to each other without any expectations or selfish motivations is a key component for developing first-class citizens. As Executive Director, Scheible believes that fostering a “paying it forward” mentality is the ultimate goal of helping students think beyond the narrow scope of our “self” and recognize that actions impact the lives of other people.
In addition to his CVCHS role, Scheible is a leader in the public charter school community. He currently sits on CCSA’s Member Council. In this capacity, he has participated in creating and updating CCSA’s Academic Accountability framework which establishes clear and transparent academic performance expectations for charter schools in the state.
