During this unique and unprecedented time, we are working hard to provide Center Line High School students with academic opportunities while also being cognizant of social distancing for their health and safety. Below is information that will help you to navigate this challenging time as well as academic options for your student to participate in over the course of the next three weeks.
Missing Assignments: At this time, the plan is for Quarter 3 to end with current grades, as is. If students have missing assignments, they will be given the opportunity to complete these assignments by Monday, April 13th in order to improve their grade(s). Copies of all missing assignments will be emailed to individual students clps.org email address and will be posted on teachers' digital platforms (i.e., Schoology and/or Google Classroom). This will provide students the opportunity to print and complete anything that currently is missing according to PowerSchool. If you need a hard copy of any of the assignments, please call 586-510-2101 or email email@example.com and leave a detailed message of what classes you need copies for. We will arrange for the hard copies to be printed and delivered to your nearest bus stop at a predetermined day/time. All assignments can be digitally submitted or turned in to their teacher upon our return.
Virtual and E2020 Courses: Any student who is currently enrolled in an Edgenuity virtual course, Odysseyware virtual course or an E2020 credit recover class is encouraged to continue to work on this virtual platform. Final exams for these courses will still be required to be taken in the building. However, as students finish the course(s), additional classes can be added by contacting Mr. Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Sheardown at email@example.com. They will continue to monitor their emails on a regular basis in order to address the students virtual needs. This is an excellent time to get caught up or work ahead in these courses.
Khan Academy: Khan Academy is linked to the students current PSAT8/9, PSAT10, and/or SAT assessment scores. This is an excellent resource for students to access to continue working on their math and English skills in preparation for upcoming state assessments and college entrance exams. Most students have already created their own Khan Academy login. However, if an account needs to be created, access the following link https://www.khanacademy.org/signup to do so.
Enrichment Activities: Enclosed we have provided a list of enrichment activities for students to complete during this three-week time frame. These activities will allow students to explore a wide variety of topics such as nature, cooking, reading, changing a tire, etc. Students are encouraged to share their experiences on social media (Facebook or Twitter) with the hashtag #CLHSpride. Additionally, journaling of their experiences is highly encouraged – notebooks can be requested at 586-510-2101 firstname.lastname@example.org. When we return, students who have participated in the journaling process or have used the hashtag #CLHSpride will be entered to win one of many prizes!
Course Specific Enrichment: Various teachers may be providing students with additional subject specific enrichment activities. These are optional for students to participate in. However, it may be beneficial for them to complete in order to maintain and further their content knowledge and skills. These enrichment activities will be provided electronically.
Teacher Communication: During these three weeks, your sons'/daughters' Mentor Monday teacher will be calling twice a week to check on the student and their academic progress with the above four activities. At this time, please make sure to share with the teacher any type of support you may need – accessing academic work, submitting missing assignments, accessing their clps.org email address, food delivery bus route schedule, etc. We are eager to help you navigate this situation the best we can! Maintaining a Schedule: It is important for our students to maintain a schedule/routine during this time. Please establish a schedule with your son/daughter to ensure they are not only focusing on screen time, but spending time experiencing academically enriching content as well.
