REMOTE-ONLY INFORMATION

Remote learners, as you prepare for the upcoming year, we wanted to share specific information regarding remote learning with you as detailed in the links below.  Additionally please note the times in the daily schedule for secondary students have been altered since the parent forums back in late July.  This adjustment was made to provide course programming that fosters success beyond the PreK-12 classroom.  Remote learners are being served by teachers across the district and may be attending synchronous sessions with students from other buildings.  Therefore, students may need to access the building drop down menu in Infinite Campus to see their full remote learning class schedule.  For example, a Centennial High School student may need to select Ankeny High School to see a complete student schedule.

Parents of students with Individual Education Plans (IEPs) will engage in team meetings in the coming days to finalize special education services and schedules.  Many schedules may appear to be incomplete, and require the team conversation to ensure that course requests and special education services are honored to the highest extent possible.  Adjustments to schedules will continue to be made based on the outcome of the IEP team conversations.

Counselor Check-in with Remote Learners:

Hello! The Centennial High School Counselors will be meeting with our virtual students on Wednesday, August 26th at 1:30 via Google Meet. We want to ensure that you have a connection with your high school counselor in case you need anything throughout the semester. We are still here for you! This invitation is for our 10th-12th grade students who have selected the 100% remote learning option for 1st semester. We are excited to see how our first group of virtual learners will navigate the new virtual classroom environment. This is your opportunity to engage with all of your virtual classmates as well as ask any questions you may have before the semester begins. Below is the google meeting link. We look forward to seeing all of you on the 26th!     https://meet.google.com/iey-qeqh-zpr?hs=122&authuser=0
