Superintendent Jeanette Warwick recently disclosed the letter sent to parents, guardians, staff and students. It read:
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has issued guidance on graduation requirements, verified credits and continuity of learning. Teachers will prepare academic packets for students to complete. It is important for students to complete the packets and return them to school at the designated dates and times. We are focused on academics and meal deliveries at this time.
- Meal Deliveries – CCPS will continue to provide meals to all children ages 0 to 18 at this time. Meals will be delivered by school bus (four-hour delay schedule) or parents may pick up meals in front of the high school between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. If there are changes to the current meal delivery plan, we will update you as soon as possible.
- CCHS Students in the Class of 2020 – Seniors must meet all diploma requirements in order to be considered a graduate. The coursework for all current classes must be completed and returned to school following the pick-up and return schedule listed on the back page. Teachers will grade the work and verify completion of all course requirements.
- CCHS Students in the Class of 2021 and Beyond – Students who are in the class of 2021 and beyond must complete all required coursework for classes they are currently taking to earn a high school credit. The coursework for all current classes must be completed and returned to school following the pick-up and return schedule listed on the back page. Academic material sent home must be returned and will be graded.
- CCHS and CCDA Students Taking an Online Course – Students who are taking an online course and have internet access at home, need to continue working on the course and have all material completed by Tuesday, May 19. Students who are taking an online course and don’t have internet access at home will receive printed packets which will need to be completed and returned by May 19 too.
- CCHS Students Failing a Course – Students who are currently failing a high school course may be candidates for summer school. If summer school is not available or is not an option, students may have to repeat the course during the 2020-2021 academic year. The decision to offer summer school will be made at a later date and based on guidance and orders from the Governor, the VDOE and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). Students will be contacted individually to discuss options for credit recovery.
