• Update as of 3/24/20:

    Hello Chester Upland School District Family,


    This is Superintendent Baughn.  I am posting this to officially let you know that as per the Governor’s order, Chester Upland School District will be closed until April 13.  During the next two weeks a team led by Dr. Jala Olds Pearson (Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction), will be working on a plan for at home instruction in the event the school closure is extended.


    Additionally, “tips for social and emotional well-being will be coming out 2x a week". Tips that will hopefully help you take care of yourselves during this unsettling time. Please look for those tips to appear on our website beginning this Thursday, March 26.


    Grab and Go Breakfast and Lunch will continue to be available at the school location closest to you:

    Chester High School, Toby Farms Middle School, or Stetser Elementary School. 

Close alert

Automotive Technology Instructor: Eric Frasier

Students in the Automotive Technology program at Chester High School will learn the skills and have the ability to work on automotive problems that occur in every day life.  Students will learn the basics to the more complex concepts of engine diagnostics.  Upon completion of the program the students will take the NOCTI Proficiency Exam which makes them eligible to take the ASE after one year of employment in the industry.  Students graduating from the program are prepared to enter the workforce as entry level service technicians for car dealerships or other vehicle service industries.


Students in the program are also encouraged to join Skills USA.  This Career and Technical Student Organization enhances student's performance, understanding and networking in  a professional setting. Students will compete in competitive events that replicate the skills and concepts learned in the classroom environment.  Students can increase their ability to be challenged in their field and receive scholarships towards their future learning by achieving excellence through competitive events. Students can also learn leadership skills through attendance at conference workshops.
