Crestwood School District updates - week of April 20 - 24

Crestwood SD teachers begin enhanced virtual presence with our families on Monday, Apr 27

What will the enhancements look like?

Crestwood School District continues the evolution of our Continuity of Education Plan by expanding our effort with the inclusion of a live or asynchronous teacher presence online.


CSD continues to endeavor to improve participation, rigor, and value within the broad guidelines of Enrichment and Review.


On April 27, we move forward with live and asynchronous teacher presence within either recorded video, or face to face check in meetings via Zoom or Google Meet software platforms. Your individual teacher will be providing you with either the recorded message or the day/time and the associated link to join the live meeting.


CSD is poised to transition to Planned Instruction seamlessly and the addition of a live and/or asynchronous presence ensures readiness to that transition.

Review and enrichment activities as well as our video enhancements are now live in Google Classroom.
