CARLISLE CSD SCHOOL COMMUNITY UPDATE
APRIL 3, 2020
With the Governor’s extension of school closure to April 30th, the district will be developing Continuous Learning Guides for parents that will be available on April 10th. The Learning Guides will provide a framework of learning for PK-12 in all content areas for students to have voluntary educational enrichment opportunities during the closure period. Parents will be encouraged to have their child participate in these learning opportunities. Since the district is providing learning opportunities for students we will not have to make up the days during the closure period.
The district will be sending out more information for parents on the Continuous Learning Guides on Thursday, April 9th. Information will include specific directions on how to access guides, the different learning platform options to allow for equity of access and how students with Individual Education Plans and 504 Plans will be supported. Our teacher collaborative teams will be working with administrators early next week in the development and implementation of these guides.
The district will be sending out a survey to get information from families on the continuous learning readiness. I encourage all parents to complete the survey, the data from the survey will help the district develop our learning supports during the closure period.
As we prepare to move into our second week of school closure, I would like to share my thoughts as a parent and educator on what is going on:
To our Carlisle parents – I want to reassure you that our students will not “lose” any learning during this closure time. Carlisle teachers will ensure that all students when they come back to the classrooms will get the learning they need to move to the next grade level. As educators we know how to adjust our planning and teaching to meet students where they are in their learning. When our school year starts back up, our teachers will adjust and meet the learning needs of our students that is what our great Carlisle teachers do every day.
To our Carlisle Teachers – As a parent and superintendent I want to thank you for your dedication to our school community. We are all learning new ways to communicate and support our students and parents. The best part is we are all learning together.
We as a school community will come out of this time stronger together, Carlisle School Community, we got this!
