Re: Return to Learn – Update
Greetings! As with any new program, data should be reviewed at certain points to assess how successful the program has been overall. In a recent review of data from Chickasha High School for the virtual, blended, and remote pathways the following information was reported:
These numbers are staggering and do not meet our expectations for students. When following up on some of the reasons for these failure rates it was noted that students have started working jobs during the school day instead of attending online classes. Staff members at CHS have contacted parents, met with students, sent emails, called home, and mailed progress reports with mixed results. It is important to note that CHS has pulled in over 50 students back into the traditional pathway for second semester.
Beginning January 11, 2021 (start of second semester) the following guidelines will go into effect regarding virtual instruction in all CPS schools.
It is our intent to offer pathways and options for all of our students to be successful. Please feel free to contact your child’s school if you have any questions.
Thank you for your time.
A quick note to our CPS community…
We are preparing to return to school in a traditional format for the 2020-2021 school year. In an effort for all students to be engaged academically, we are offering different learning pathways . Each family may request the learning pathway that best suits the needs of their child and learning styles. Each student will be automatically enrolled in the traditional learning pathway unless a parent or guardian submits an application for a blended or virtual learning pathway. CPS will continue to monitor any community spread and adjust this plan accordingly. We are in a fluid situation that requires flexibility, cooperation, and understanding on everyone’s part. The staff of CPS is very appreciative of your patience, kindness, and support over these past few months. We are looking forward to a successful and exciting 2020-2021 school year.
