Temporary Classroom Instruction Changes to Impact Some Students
Collegiate Academy Parents,
Next week your scholar may be impacted by temporary changes to the way classroom instruction is delivered. You are being provided this information in advance to give families time to ask questions and prepare for adjustments to upcoming learning days.
Virtual Students Districtwide (Monday, February 1, 2021)
On Monday, February 1, 2021, all virtual scholars districtwide will be provided classwork assignments to complete independently, but virtual scholars will have no live instruction on these dates. There will be no change for scholars who are attending school in-person and they should plan on attending school in-person as usual on and Monday, February 1, 2021.
The purpose of this change for virtual scholars is to provide campuses with time to make classroom adjustments as we transition into the third 9 week grading period. Over the past few weeks, parents were able to make learning preference changes between in-person and virtual learning and now those changes are being put into place.
