Current plans for CCEC are for students to have an opportunity to sign up for, face-to-face, drop-in appointments with teachers, as well as having teachers available throughout the school day on Zoom to provide student assistance. All students will work online through Edmentum, which is a district-provided service. The drop-in schedule will be Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and students will sign up for appointments through Calendly.com. Food service will be provided for those that come for drop-in classes.
CCEC will be exploring adding additional programming to the services currently provided. We will be looking at adding more credit recovery programing, English as a Second Language classes, adult education and training programs, as well as adult enrichment programs, trips, and tours.
If you have any questions regarding CCEC programming, please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Sanchez and her staff.
