Dear CPP Middle School and High School Families:
 

From Michelle A. Caulfield Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education
 

  We are writing today to share our plans for instruction for Phase 3: Continuity and Assessment: May 18th through June 12th. During this phase, we will continue new learning and add assessments to close out the 2019-2020 school year.

Since March 13th, we have created online and packet-based instruction and work to help students practice skills, so they can stay engaged and continue to learn in whatever format your family has chosen. During Phase 1 and Phase 2, teachers and related service providers offered feedback on work completed and opportunities to interact with them through Google Meet, email, phone calls and in some cases, home driveway visits.

Phase 3 will continue to provide online and packet-based instruction, along with opportunities for students to improve their grades as of March 13, 2020 when we abruptly all went home. Each teacher will provide FOUR numerically GRADED assignments – one per week beginning May 18th. These four grades will be averaged into your student’s current marking period or trimester. We encourage all of our students to take advantage of this opportunity for improvement and continued learning.

 

Middle School


How will my Trimester 2 Average/Grade be calculated?

  •  We will remain in Trimester 2 for the rest of the year.

  •   Students will receive a grade based on their March 13th average. Additionally,

    • Four graded assignments remain for the year in each course.

    • Completion of these assignments will be used to improve your student’s grade

    • At the end of the year, students will receive either their March 13th average OR the end-of-Trimester grade that includes the additional four assignments, whichever is higher.

Final Average for the Year:

Students’ final average will be calculated based on the average of Trimester 1 and 2 (50%/50%).

  • There will be no final exam.

  • Single trimester courses will receive their course average as usual.

 

High School


How will my Marking Period 3 Average/Grade be calculated?

  •  We will remain in Marking Period 3 for the remainder of the year.

  •   Students will receive a grade based on their March 13th average. Additionally,

    • Four graded assignments remain for the year.

    • Completion of these assignments will be used to improve your student’s grade.

    • At the end of the year, students will receive either their March 13th average OR the Marking Period grade that includes the additional four assignments, whichever is higher.
       

Final Average for the Year:

Students’ final average will be calculated based on the average of Marking Periods 1/2/3 (each weighing 1/3).

  • There will be no final exam.

  • Semester courses will receive their Marking Parking 3 course average.

  • Courses that had a mid-term will be calculated based on the marking periods being equal with

    10% for the midterm (30/30/30/10).

  • SUPA and ACE courses will follow the guidelines of the institution granting credit.

    Middle School and High School Packet Pick-Up and Student Work Drop-off

  • Phase 3 Packet Pick-Up will be held on Monday, May 18th at the Middle School and the High School. Please look for messages from the administrators about times.

  •  Student Work Drop-Off will happen on Friday, May 29th and Friday, June 12th

    Our number one priority has been to provide support and reassurance that we will all be ok while we navigate this pandemic together. We will continue to offer this support in Phase 3 of “school from home”.

    Please reach out to your building administration or contact me directly with any questions or concerns at mcaulfield@cppmail.com. We will get through this together.


    Respectfully,

    Michelle Caulfield

    Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education
