Synchronous Learning

For families opting for synchronous learning due to COVID 19, CCS will provide access to the regular school days’ instruction and assignments utilizing a dedicated live stream, Google Suite, and Seesaw.  The school day will include direct instruction lessons taught by the classroom teacher; real time assignments, tests, and projects; and scheduled teacher office hours.  Synchronous learning is not available to students who are traveling or have unrelated to COVID 19 illnesses. As with many things this school year, we will be gathering feedback and evaluating our synchronous learning plan and will adjust the plan as needed.

  • Assigned textbooks and packets provided by CCS
