Building on the Continuity of Learning


<< Back to CCPS News

April 25, 2020 – After three weeks of virtual learning, teachers, students and families are now familiar with online platforms like Zoom and Google Classroom. Students have also had time to adjust to individual schedules, based on their needs and the needs of their families. The next phase of the plan, beginning April 27, includes increased content and more subject areas for elementary and middle school students.

Basic additions to the Continuity of Learning Plan are:

  • Elementary
    • Science & Social Studies – 45-60 minutes per week
    • Reading Intervention as assigned by the teacher
    • Increased optional classroom activities added for Specials (Art, Music, Media, Tech)
  • Middle School
    • Reading and Math – increased to three hours each per week
    • Science & Social Studies – two hours each per week
    • Fine Arts – One activity per week (45-60 mins)
    • Physical Education/Health- 60 min a week
    • World Language – One activity per week (45-60 mins)
    • Reading Intervention as assigned by the teacher

The updated details are available on the CCPS website, and assignments for required courses will be provided by the teacher through Google Classroom. For students using paper packets, these will be delivered by mail the week of April 27.

Also new to the plan, teachers have been provided information and training in the use of Google Voice which enables a secure way to talk and text with families.

Superintendent Dr. Saelens stated, “Teachers, students, and families have more than risen to the challenge of virtual learning. We are pleased to present a wider range of learning opportunities to engage students through the May 15th closure date.”
