Governor Dunleavy closes schools March 16-27

Good evening,

Governor Dunleavy just announced the closing of all schools within our state from March 16 - March 27, 2020.

These days will be considered non-student contact days.  Students will not be attending school; staff will be attending.  

As such, all CCSD staff will be at work next week preparing for a distance delivery educational model.  Some of the items that the district will need to consider as we develop a distance delivery model are the following:

  • What courses/content areas will be provided through an electronic instructional format where courses are purchased through an online curriculum vendor, students work individually to complete course content and assignments, and students consult with teachers via the telephone or email on a regular basis,
  • What courses/content areas will be provided through a “correspondence” school model where teachers assign course content through textbooks, worksheets, etc., and consults via the telephone or email with students about the student’s progress on a regular basis,
  • What courses might be taught through an electronic format by CCSD teachers and delivered remotely to students,
  • What our special education service model will look like and how we ensure the best service model for our students,
  • What our food service model will look like to ensure that students still have access to breakfasts and lunches, and 
  • What our custodial/maintenance plan will look like to ensure the safest educational environment when our students can return.

As indicated above, all CCSD staff will be working during the week of March 16 - March 20 to prepare our district to provide a distance delivery educational model for our students.

As our plans are developed and tightened we will be sharing this information with all of our families.  Thank you for your patience.  CCSD can’t thank our parents and guardians enough for the constant support you provide us and more importantly the student body we are proud to serve.

Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you would like additional information about any item related to CCSD’s preparations. 

Thank you,

Chris Reitan, CCSD Superintendent
