Cardinal Spotlight

Thank you to the Learning Coaches who participated in our final Cardinal Spotlight for the 2015-2016 school year. We discussed the following topics.


  • Kmail/Email Transition-CVCS will no longer use kmail for the 2016-2017 school year. CVCS will transition to communicating with our families via the email address on file with the school and through the student's school email account (more details regarding the student's account to come at the beginning of next year). If you change any contact information, please be sure to update the school.
  • Middle School Platform-Please see the attached document in the Learning Coach Update kmail.
  • K12 Summit Courses- Please see the attached document in the Learning Coach Update kmail.
