  • Plans for the Beginning of the School Year

    Here are the current plans we will move through together in phases for our CCSMS scholars and families who plan on joining us on campus this school year based on medical experts and data:
    • Temporary Remote Mode: We plan to start on August 18, 2020 with all of our scholars learning from a distance in “temporary remote mode” based on the current trends in COVID-19 for our area.
    • Hybrid: When it is safe to do so, we will have a hybrid option with alternating A and B days, see the chart below. Our A and B days will be aligned with the District’s and they are aligning families on the same days. Most scholars will be on campus 2 days a week and learning remotely 3 days a week.
    • Closer to 100% On Campus: When it becomes safe to do so, we would welcome for more of our scholars to join us on campus for 5 days a week we will make that transition from hybrid to what will look more like a “normal” schedule with some scholars still learning remotely.
    We will have some CCSMS families who choose to stay in a virtual learning environment all year or for parts of the year. Updated on August 20, 2020.
    • Distance Learning Option A - The CCSMS Distance Learning Option: Scholars are served by CCSMS teachers and continue to stay in courses paced with their peers during the year. They will be able to come back into the hybrid or traditional model with some simple steps. We will have some scholars who need to quarantine or be out for extended periods unexpectedly and will be able to transition in and out of this option, as needed.
    • Distance Learning Option B - The CCSD Virtual Academy - No longer exists as originally proposed. Those scholars will now be part of the CCSMS Distance Learning Option.

  • Free Internet Applications

    Free Internet Applications - CCSD is still determining eligibility
     
    If you do not have internet access at home, you may qualify for the state's program. The law limits the households eligible for free internet to:
    • Households with a student.
    • Internet service that is not duplicative - If the student's household already has internet, then the expenditure is not eligible under the CARES Act.
    • Internet that is needed because of the pandemic and for educational purposes.
    • Households with an income at or below 250 percent of federal poverty (see chart below).
     
    If you meet all of these qualifications, apply here:

  • Bus Registration

    Bus Registration Form

    If you plan on utilizing bus transportation, please register your scholars using this form.
     
    Please complete one bus registration for each scholar you have enrolled at CCSMS, so we can plan for grade levels and courses based on their individual needs.
     
    We are leasing brand-new 2020 buses for the coming school year. Our drivers and Mrs. Sellers are very excited to be able to have the latest in safety and technology to best serve our families and scholars.
     
    Based on current COVID -19 related guidelines, we will only be able to fill them to about 50% capacity. Scholars who ride the CCSMS school buses next year will have assigned routes and seats. 
     
    Siblings and those living in the same household will need to sit together. Face masks will need to worn at all times on the bus.
     
    We will have a new app for families to track the bus locations.

    Routes will post soon.
