Cohort Selection Survey

From the Clark County School District:

In an effort to provide additional time for parents/guardians to make decisions regarding the cohort selection(s) for their student(s) within the hybrid instructional model, the Hybrid Cohort Questionnaire located at http://ccsd.net/survey will remain open through November 20, 2020, until 5:00 p.m.

If a parent/guardian wants to change their selection, parents/guardians may submit a second response that will replace their first response beginning on November 11, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. Parents/guardians may only resubmit their response one time through November 20, 2020, until 5:00 p.m.

The final cohort selection for every student is required by November 20, 2020, to promote the planning and preparation for the potential of implementing the hybrid instructional model. If you have any questions, please contact the school at (702) 799-5760.
