SAMPLE Student Schedule:

In this sample schedule the student will join a Google Meet through Google Classroom with the teacher and classmates assigned for Monday. Each meeting session will include a small group of students in order to provide more individualized attention.
Students are required to attend remotely ALL of their classes including the Ironman Way period on the day(s) assigned. Attendance will be taken each period and recorded in PowerTeacher.
The lesson will be taught remotely by the teacher. Student participation will be included in the lesson. Teachers will share their screen, use Google Slides or Google Docs for presentation purposes, and use other tools for “writing on the board” while teaching. When students sign on they will have the option of having video on or off depending on their comfort level.
Assignments for the week will be based on the content taught during the lesson for the week.
Teachers will offer help sessions and office hours at specific times during the school day. The Ironman Way period has been added to allow for additional support of student learning as well. This is an effort to support remote learning and to provide additional assistance to students at various times when needed.

Dear Cleveland Central Catholic families,
We pray each of you are well. Enclosed you will find important updates and communication regarding the 2020-2021 academic year.
For the safety and wellness of our faculty, staff, and students and to support student learning we have made the decision to follow the recommendation of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health issued on July 30, 2020. The recommendation is as follows:
“Begin the 2020-21 school year operating remotely due to the elevated health risk posed to students, staff and family members and discontinue extracurriculars such as sports, band, theater, choir and other activities during the remote learning period.”
This decision was made with great consideration and discernment in light of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health’s recent recommendation. We recognize and acknowledge this decision brings sadness and disappointment. There will be missed social interaction, and extracurricular activities. It is hard to imagine starting the school year without the positive community spirit that fills our halls. COVID-19 has presented unique challenges that restrict us from providing in-person education for a community of almost 650 students, faculty and staff.
The following important information empowers us to live out the ministry of catholic education remotely with intention, care and consistency. More information will be shared in the days ahead.
We are grateful for your continued trust and flexibility as we navigate and respond to the ever-changing landscape of this global pandemic.
Mr. Hyland, Sr. Allison Marie, Sr. Erin, Mr. Crawford and Mr. Duke

We will share more information with you in the weeks ahead.
Transportation: Cleveland Central Catholic will continue to offer transportation to and from school once we return to in-person education for those who sign up for this service.
