Technology 

All students in grades K-12 will be assigned a CCS chromebook. Students are expected to bring their charged chromebook and charger in a backpack to school every day.  Students should also shut down their computer every night to ensure nightly updates are applied to their machine. 

Students must use a CCS chromebook at school and may not bring their own device to school. Click Here to learn about our One-to-One Chromebook initiative.   

 

Canvas

Teachers are utilizing Canvas as a Learning Management System. It is extremely important for parents to have access to Canvas through a Parent Canvas Account. Click here to view instructions on how to create a Parent Canvas Account.  

 

PowerSchool Parent Portal 

Middle and High Schools use PowerSchool to take attendance and record grades. Click here for directions on accessing PowerSchool Parent Portal. Teachers update grades weekly. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s grades, please contact your child’s teacher immediately. 

 

Student Attendance & Participation

Students who are attending face-to-face are required to attend school on their assigned day.  If students are absent, parents must follow the standard procedures for notifying the school of the reason for the absence. Students are expected to participate in all instructional activities on their remote learning days (any day students are not physically in school).  Students and parents should contact their teacher with any questions or concerns.  

 

100% Remote Option at Current School 

CCS has extended the option for students to remain 100% remote at their current school.  Parents selecting this option must remain remote through the end of the current quarter (January 14, 2021, March 25, 2021, May 3, 2021).  Students will receive a quality education at each school.  Teacher assignments will be based on staffing at each individual school.  Students may receive instruction through a variety of methods including, but not limited to livestream, synchronous “live” whole group sessions, synchronous “live” small group sessions, and asynchronous instruction.
