Hello Cardinal Family,
We know many are wondering what the 2020-2021school year is going to look like. We have received survey feedback from parents, students, and teachers. Thank you for letting us know your thoughts on what worked, what can improve, and what you would like to see in the future.
After reviewing our survey results, we know that our parents, students, and teachers want to be back in school in a “normal” way if possible. We are waiting on the official word from the Governor which is expected next week. Once we have this, we will do our best to meet the needs and desires of our stakeholders as well as to follow the orders, guidelines and rules from the Governor, Health Department, and ODE.
Additionally, the survey data indicated that multiple communication platforms were utilized by our teachers during emergency remote instruction. Upon analyzing the data, we will be utilizing Google Classroom and Remind as our official communication platforms. It is our hope that this will streamline communication in a more efficient way for our families, especially those with multiple children.
We also know that some of our families are concerned and would like an online option so we have decided to begin a Digital Academy this fall. Mr. Maroni will be taking on a new role as the Director of our online school and CVMS Assistant Principal. Due to this change, Mr. Flood will be the Principal at Hilltop. We are in the early stages of planning for our online school and will be sharing more information with you as details become available.
We are doing our best to provide the students in Canfield with a quality education that fits this unique time. It is our hope to post official plans to our website within the next few weeks.
Mr. Tullio and Mr. Knoll
