Cleveland Public Schools are set to resume classes on August 13th. We are excited to welcome all students back to our campus! The school campus will have more sanitizing stations, promote social distancing, and be flexible with your child’s attendance in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 related symptoms. While we will be smart and vigilant about health and safety procedures, we are doing our best to ensure that Cleveland Schools will still look, act, and feel like the Cleveland Schools we know and love. As guidance from local and state health professionals continue to be released every day, related to COVID-19, we will be releasing our plan after the school board meeting on August 3rd.
Currently, many families find themselves in circumstances that require greater flexibility. If you are thinking about transitioning your child to a full or partially online school this fall, we encourage you to consider the flexibility of our innovative programs outlined below.
Students are automatically enrolled in Option 1. As a school district, the vast majority of our students excel every year in the traditional school setting. However, as society and circumstances evolve so does learning. If you are interested in Option 2 or Option 3 please contact us at (918)358-2210 and choose option 1.
All students have the privilege of being enrolled automatically in our traditional school settings. As society changes and evolves so do our schools. Technology is being incorporated in our school system more than ever before. Coding, Robotics, Google Classroom, Digital Progress Monitoring, and online learning programs like Reflex Math, Study Island, ACT Aspire, and now EXACT PATH give students the opportunity to have a more personalized education with a classroom teacher guiding them along the way. Also available to 6th-12th grade students is the flexibility to enroll in supplemental virtual classes on our campus to ensure we are meeting the specific needs of all of our students. We are proud of the innovative practices of our traditional school buildings and are excited to see what the future holds for CPS School Buildings. As we continue to daily monitor news and information from local, state, and national agencies and health professionals we will do everything in our power to have a SAFE and NORMAL start to the school year. As always, CPS will make decisions that are in the best interest in the physical and emotional safety of our students. However, during uncertain times that COVID-19 has forced upon us, we also know that other learning options are being explored by parents. Please see Options 2 and 3 as you consider what is best for you and your child.
Students In CPAC have the opportunity to dynamically customize their own schedules. In addition to taking courses at the Cleveland Personalized Academic Center, students may also take courses at CHS, Central Technology Center, or through Tulsa Community College entire Online course offerings. Through the personalized education plan, a student may take anywhere from one to eight courses at a time. We believe that managing four to five courses at a time creates opportunities for students to find immediate success in their courses. A student may complete a course as quickly as they demonstrate competency, with the capacity to begin taking a new course immediately thereafter, increasing their motivation and sense of accomplishment. There are endless possibilities, Extracurricular morning and/or afternoon, TCC midday, and traditional brick and mortar right after lunch. CPAC offers a flexible attendance option available for 11th-12th graders meeting progress that allows them to choose which times they come into the CPAC building.
The purpose of the Cleveland Virtual Academy is to provide students, who reside in the Cleveland School district, the option to complete a program of courses from home with a curriculum that meets rigorous state education standards. The Virtual program offers students flexibility by allowing them to work on classes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The virtual option is a good choice for students who are wanting a more flexible schedule or a student who needs credit recovery. By selecting the virtual option, students also assume increased responsibility in personal time management, organization, self-direction and personal discipline to complete the course and school requirements. Technology and Internet access are provided for students, who may need it. A certified Cleveland teacher will monitor student’s progress and communicate with students and parents weekly or daily. Students also have the option to continue with select courses in a traditional setting with prior approval from administration (6th – 12th). Also, students can participate in extracurricular activities (i.e. Band, Athletics, Vo. Ag.).
