Dear CREC-CLHS Parents and Guardians,

On Thursday, March 26, 2020, CREC will begin an Interim Learning Plan while we are at home during the COVID-19 shutdown of schools in Connecticut. We have worked hard to get in touch with you. If you haven’t heard from one of our staff members yet, please call contact us ASAP. This plan will provide continued learning for all students with their regularly assigned teachers. Please read the information below to ready your children for participation next Thursday. We look forward to continued support for all of our students moving forward.

Students will have scheduled learning activities Monday - Thursday. These will be a combination of video, live Zoom calls, and assignments shared with families. Live Zoom calls will be recorded in case your student cannot attend at the scheduled time. Watching videos and other assignments may be done at the students’ own pace, but we encourage following the schedule set by the school. The days will include lunch breaks, brain breaks, and transition time. On Friday, students are expected to read, explore, play, and complete any learning extensions provided. Teachers will also be available for support, depending on their meeting schedule.

The CLHS schedule is as follows:

Student Guidelines

During the school closure, the goal is for students to be able to continue their learning. It is important to set up an area that is free from distraction. Students will be expected to:
- Communicate with the teachers and peers through zoom, email or the online learning  platform
- Participate in live classes as often as possible
- Plan to work 3 - 4 hours per day and have flexibility to complete assignments as they are able
- Watch posted lessons after the fact if you miss a live session
- Be courteous and kind to peers and teachers; appropriate behavior is expected
- Reach out for printed or emailed materials, if needed
- Dress appropriately for live classes
- Seek support from teacher, counselors, social workers, administrators, and other school  staff as needed

Teacher Expectations
Teachers will be expected to:
- Post/email materials, video, lessons, and assignments prior to the start of the day
- Host Zoom calls for whole group or small groups during class time periodically
- Recording and posting videos for students who cannot attend
- Have contact with students at least twice per week (this could be through a zoom  class, email, phone or task completion)
- Have posted office hours for students to get extra support
- Provide modifications and accommodations to meet IEP or 504 plans
- Assess student performance and provide feedback

At CREC, we are here to support our students and this will be a learning experience for all of us. We know that our students will rise to the occasion, and make this learning opportunity beneficial for all!

CLHS Spring 2020 Student Support Resources

CTCN Programming Available Monday-Thursday 2:00-2:30 PM

At Civic Leadership High School, your child has the opportunity to build a resume unmatched by that of his or her peers! Through our unique coursework, students can earn recognized public safety certifications not available at any other high school, while completing a rigorous college preparatory program.

Our semi-annual Public Service Days provide opportunities to put learning into action. Each student will engage in over fifty hours of community service during their high school years. Our partnerships with UConn and Asnuntuck Community College give students the opportunity to earn as many as 40 college credits by the time they graduate.

Our graduates leave CLHS as leaders, they are engaged members of their communities, and they are prepared for life after high school.
