    All Virtual Learning

     



    On Monday, November 9, after much discussion, public comment and thoughtful consideration, the Board of Education made the following decisions:

    Middle School
    Students will remain virtual for the remainder of the first semester. Students will return to in-person learning 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) beginning January 19, 2021. Students enrolled in CPS Virtual learning can continue in the program and are not impacted by this change.

    Special Programs
    The Special Services Department will review all special education programs and evaluate which programs will be eligible to continue to receive in-person learning.  The English Learner Department will review all of its English Learner programs and evaluate which programs will be eligible to receive in-person learning. Career Education will review all of its courses and programs and evaluate which will be eligible to continue to receive in-person learning.

     

    The district will continue to monitor community COVID-19 cases and will announce any changes in how in-person learning will take place. The Board of Education will continue to discuss our return to in-person learning and will determine when it is safe to do so based on COVID-19 cases in the community. 


    Technology Services Help Desk

     

     

    All students can call the Student Helpdesk at 214-3334 or visit our Technicians at our middle schools 12:30-2:30 p.m. and after hours at Aslin 5-7 p.m. Of note, after hours and middle school drive up technology support provided by CPS Technology Services will not be available during the upcoming days when school is not in session and when school is closed for the Thanksgiving and winter breaks.  

     





     

    IN-PERSON

    CPS In-Person (Fully online) – This includes all students who selected in-person learning. In-person will continue to be fully online and students will be taught by CPS teachers using CPS resources and curriculum.

    The district will continue to monitor community COVID-19 cases and will announce any changes in how in-person learning will take place. The Board of Education will continue to discuss our return to in-person learning and will determine when it is safe to do so based on COVID-19 cases in the community.

    Please look for communication directly from your child’s school or program. You can continue to direct questions about devices to your school.   

    To help our families prepare for a return to learning, we have a sample Daily Schedule below.

    Middle School Example Week

    On Wednesdays, teachers will be available for office hours for two hours from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. 

     


    CPS Virtual – This program is for students who enrolled in the secondary (grades 6-12) virtual option. The classes are taught online by CPS teachers using CPS resources and curriculum. These students are not impacted by changes made to in-person learning. Students in this option can choose to transition to in-person at the end of the semester. The program has a waiting list and requests to enroll will be addressed once student course schedules are complete on a case-by-case basis as space allows.  

    Secondary schools will use an A-F grading scale.
