2020 Distance Learning Schedule

****Community School Progress Summary 2020-2021****

Greetings CCFAS Family,

I hope you and your families continue to be safe.  I wanted to make sure you were aware that we are going virtual from September 8, 2020-January 29, 2021. The link below is a DRAFT plan for reopening schools that was approved by the Board of Education during its July 21, 2020 meeting your review$file/Reopening%20Plan_DRAFT_FINAL_July2020_2.pdf.

As stated in the draft plan, we are in the process of developing a virtual bell schedule for at least the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year.  In developing our virtual schedule, we are moving to a semester schedule (i.e., students take four classes in the first semester and four classes in the second semester instead of taking eight classes all year). We believe this will be the best option for our students based on feedback, a good transition for our incoming 9th graders, and our teachers will be able to focus more time on planning for instruction.  The virtual bell schedule for our school will be released the later this month once it is officially approved.  As we transition to providing instruction in this virtual environment, we will adhere to the following parameters:

  • The virtual school day will start no earlier than 8:00 AM and end no later than 3:00 PM.
  • Teachers and staff will be on duty Monday through Friday, with Wednesdays being held for: targeted interventions, synchronous/asynchronous instruction, collaborative planning, and/or professional learning.
  • Teachers will take student attendance daily and for each synchronous class period on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  
  • Teachers will adhere to traditional grading and reporting procedures as outlined in BCPS policy.

Again, I hope everyone is safe and please call the school at 443-809-0934 if you have questions.  

Educationally yours,

Jewell Ralph
