Progress Update Survey

Greetings Parents,


Please complete the five question survey below so that we may gauge parent perspectives on the academic environment for scholars. The results of this survey will be used for future development and campus improvements. Our goal is to support and serve all scholars.

District Assessment 1

Parents,

Scholars have been diligently preparing in all classes for their upcoming district assessments. District Assessment 1 is scheduled to be administered from Monday, November 2nd through Friday, November 13th. All scholars, in-person and virtual will test. Please help us in ensuring your scholar reviews their notes, is well-rested, and present in-person or virtually for each test. Information will be given to scholars in their individual classes.

2nd Nine Week Grading Period

All families will have the opportunity to change between in-person and virtual learning at the end of each nine-week grading period. The second nine-week grading period begins Monday, November 9, 2020. To make a learning preference change starting with the third nine-week grading period, parents can do so using the Learning Preference Change Form.
