Classwork During School Closure
Each year, Cherokee County Schools adds eight days to the calendar to serve as a safeguard for days when schools are closed due to sickness, flooding and unpredictable cold weather. To avoid losing instructional time, CCS is launching a program called ACE, (At-Home Curriculum Extension). This program allows students to complete schoolwork at home on days when schools are closed and keeps the district from having to add make-up days to the calendar.
We will begin this effort after the 8th missed day of school. As of today, we have missed 7 days.
Student Support on an ACE Day
Teachers will hold virtual office hours from 9 am - 12 pm.
Teachers will be available via email for questions and support.
School media coordinators will be available by email if students experience technical problems on Chromebooks.
In the event of extenuating circumstances, students in all grades will have up to three days after our return to school to submit assignments.
PK - 5th Grade
Elementary students are not expected to work online. A packet of assignments for each grade level will be sent home with your child. These packets include materials for up to four potential days of ACE work though the length of the school closure may be more or less than four days. This ensures that students have sufficient work for longer closures. In addition to the physical packets sent home, the packets for each school will be posted on the district’s website.
6th - 12th Grade
Students in grades 6-12 will complete their work online, as they have school-issued devices as part of the CCS 1:1 program.
