NEW: Family-School Relationships Survey

Our District values feedback from families, and we would like to learn more about your child’s school experience this year. CCS is collecting responses for a Family-School Relationships Survey to learn how we can better support our community during the rest of the school year and beyond.



Parents and guardians, please take 10-15 minutes to complete the Family-School Relationships Survey. You will have between January 10th and January 28th to complete. Families with children at more than one school should complete one survey for their oldest child in each school.


To access the survey, families can visit surveys.panoramaed.com/ccsoh/family and select their child’s school. Select your student’s school from the dropdown menu and click “Take this survey.” All responses are completely anonymous and will help us to plan programs, resources, and services for the remainder of this school year.

PBIS Tier II Practices - "Small Group Supports"

  • Tier 2 practices and systems support students who are at risk for developing more serious problem behaviors before those behaviors start. These supports help students develop the skills they need to benefit from core programs at the school.
  • Interventions are delivered in small group using strategies known to be effective
  • Progress monitoring data is used to adjust instruction and intervention
  • Students receiving Tier II interventions still receive Tier I interventions
