Dear CMSD Students, Parents and Caregivers:
School will start for most of our students on Monday, Aug. 22, beginning a school year that we believe will see the District gain momentum and provide added proof of our promise that CMSD students and families “Get More.”
We will continue to develop a new Vision for Learning that seizes on the disruption of the pandemic as an opportunity to create a system that is more fair, just and good for all learners. The Vision, which will engage students more deeply, has four core elements: mastery learning, learning that can occur anywhere or anytime, whole-human learning and personalized pathways.
Last school year, we began rolling out investments that strengthen and enrich the CMSD Learning Experience. These included providing a device for every student and internet access for families that need it; placing a full-time health professional in every building; expanding arts, music, physical education, after-school sports and extracurricular activities and out-of-school-time partnerships; converting school media centers into community, college and career planning hubs; and launching career planning for all students.
This school year, we will finish phasing in Say Yes to Education services in our schools, with a specialist in each building organizing supports that help students and families overcome barriers to success and the scholarships Say Yes provides. A new online system will give parents easier access to their children’s school records. We also have equipped buses with Wi-Fi and are installing interactive Clevertouch screens in classrooms.
Academic Calendars and back-to-school transportation assignments will be mailed home. Schools will communicate school-specific information to families, including start and end time information, back-to-school meet and greets, and more. Some of the information is already available on this page.
If you haven’t yet enrolled in CMSD to take advantage of all we have to offer, visit our enrollment website – chooseCMSD.org – or call our enrollment hotline at 216-838-3675.
