Family & Community Letters
The 2019-2020 school year is in the history books. I’m extremely proud of the work we have accomplished together and the patience, flexibility, and support that our families displayed throughout the school year, and especially during the last nine weeks of school.
CCSD thanks each of our families for the adjustments you made to help the district create the best learning context possible for your student(s) during our distance education model. As I have previously stated, our model wasn’t perfect, but I do know that everyone did their best to make it as “perfect as possible.” As we complete the 2019-2020 school year, I know a lot of us are thinking about what next school year might look like, and each of us are hoping for a return to normalcy, especially as it relates to school operations. As of the writing of this letter, CCSD is unsure of what next school year will look like.
The end of the 2019-20 school year is just around the corner; May marks the last full month of school. As is typical with the month of May, CCSD is collaborating with parents, students, and staff members to plan the end of school year activities, celebrating our students’ academic and extra-curricular achievements. Our planning processes have openly recognized the complications that our current distance delivery educational model imposes as we look for new ways to meaningfully celebrate our students’ academic and extra-curricular achievements.
April has arrived and usually the end of the school year is coming into greater focus as CCSD prepares for our end of school activities and begins our preparations for the upcoming school year. Unfortunately, we are in a different place this year and there is not much that we can predict given the ever-changing climate we are all living and working in.
March is here, the days are getting longer, and CCSD is in the process of planning for our 2020-2021 school year.
March is an important month for the district and City. CCSD and the City of Craig annually conduct a March budget work-session in preparation for the upcoming school year. This work-session provides the opportunity for the district to share our FY 21 budget assumptions, our anticipated revenues, and our anticipated expenditures.
