message to senior class below

Dear High School Seniors and Families,

Campbell County Public Schools (CCPS) has received guidance from the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) regarding graduation requirements for the class of 2020.  Current seniors, who were on track to graduate on March 13, 2020, will graduate at the end of this school year.  Students who were not on track as of March 13, 2020, may still complete work during this closure with the goal of becoming eligible for graduation.  Each high school is prepared to assist students who may need to make up additional work in order to graduate and will be contacting those students directly.  All Standards of Learning (SOL) testing has been suspended because of the school closure, and waivers will be granted for seniors needing an SOL test to graduate.

Graduation will not be withheld from seniors if they were on track for graduation when school ended on March 13.  At the present time, no decision has been made regarding graduation ceremonies.  We recognize this has been a difficult time for students and families across the division and understand the disappointment the senior class must feel. 

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

 

Robert Johnson

Superintendent

3/25/20 Message from the Superintendent

posted Mar 25, 2020, 1:32 PM by Amy Abell



March 25, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope this letter finds you healthy and doing well during this unprecedented crisis.  I understand the challenges that this school closure has placed on you and our community, but hopefully, we soon will return to normalcy in our daily lives.

Earlier this week, I informed you that our staff was working on a long-term academic (closure) plan to guide us educationally through the remainder of the school year.  Tomorrow, our Instructional Department will deliver via email, CCPS webpage, and CCPS Facebook page, our plan that identifies how educational services will be delivered.  If you are unable to access any of the delivery models, please contact your child’s school. 

The CCPS Long-term Academic Plan was designed with guidance from the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE).  It is not designed to “replicate the existing school day or year, but provide opportunities for students to make academic progress and continue to learn and grow” (VDOE Superintendent’s Memo #077-20).  The goals are to graduate our seniors, ensure students are ready for promotion to the next grade, and to do so in the most equitable way possible.  We know learning gaps will occur, and we will address those through a variety of opportunities throughout the summer and into the next school year.

We are still having on-going conversations surrounding report cards and graduation, and we will provide you with updates as those details are finalized.  Please rest assured no students’ grades will be negatively impacted because of this closure.

As I mentioned previously, this is an unprecedented event, and undoubtedly, we will need to adjust our plan as new guidance becomes available, or we make enhancements to the delivery of instruction.  Please be patient and do not hesitate to contact your child’s school if you have questions.  I assure you our staff is working to make this situation the best it can be under difficult circumstances.

Finally, none of this is more important to you or your child than your physical and mental health.  Please stay safe and healthy and make this stressful event positive for your family. 

Kind regards,

Robert Johnson

Superintendent
