    May Parent & Community Letter (5/3/19)

    On April 18 CCSD hosted a Parent Focus Group meeting. During this meeting, parents were asked to provide feedback to the district about three key questions:
    • What is the perception of CCSD communication with our stakeholder groups, and how might CCSD do a better job disseminating information?
    • What are some areas of concern that parents might have about CCSD programs, operations, and/or policies and what might be some ways CCSD might consider addressing these concerns?
    • What are some areas of improvement that parents are noticing within CCSD?

    October Parent & Community Letter (10/25/18)

    October is a really important month for school districts across the state of Alaska as it is the foundational period for determining each school district’s state funding for the school year. The student count period this year runs from October 1 to October 26. As our enrollment currently stands, CCSD is anticipating a higher student enrollment compared to last year.
