CMCSS Reopening Update July 20
July 20, 2020
We appreciate your continued support, patience, and understanding. As of this morning, the district has received electronic forms for 80% of our 36,000 students, with 40% opting for CMCSS K-12 Virtual and 60% choosing the traditional model. Of those selecting the traditional model, around 55% have selected CMCSS transportation.
At 11:59 p.m. on Wed., July 22, families will no longer be able to access the electronic form. Parents/guardians who have not received a form, still need to make their selections, need to update their contact information, or require any other changes/corrections should contact their child’s enrolled school beginning Fri., July 24. The front offices at schools will be open M-F from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please note: the district previously planned to open front offices on July 23, but is providing an extra day for front office personnel to be trained on the new processes. Those who have already reached out to [email protected] do not need to submit another request. Teams are still working through these requests and will respond to families as soon as possible.
For families who selected CMCSS K-12 Virtual for their child(ren), counselors and administrators will begin the process of case reviews next week. Counselors and administrators will only reach out to parents/guardians of students for which there are concerns or necessary course changes. Counselors and administrators will not reach out if there are no course changes or concerns. All parents/guardians of students who have selected CMCSS K-12 Virtual will receive additional communications in the coming weeks with more information about Learning Mentor trainings, laptops, etc.
At any point during the academic year, which begins on August 31, CMCSS may need to have students in the traditional setting move to remote learning based on the circumstances of the pandemic. Students in CMCSS K-12 Virtual will not be affected by transitions on the Continuum of Learning (traditional to remote or remote to traditional). Families choosing traditional for their child(ren) should make preparations throughout the year in the event that school buildings are closed and remote learning must take place for all students.
