Posted On: Thursday, July 16, 2020


On behalf of the Superintendent, please see the following announcements:

• If you plan to send your child back to our campuses for Traditional In-Person learning, you don’t need to do anything further.  You will receive an email on July 29 asking you to complete our usual Back-to-School Gateway process to confirm emergency contacts and update other data.  We have created a webpage compiling all available school supply lists at; all supply lists will be posted by July 27.

• CCSD has launched a Fact vs. Fiction webpage at  In these times of “fake news” circulated on social media and by “unofficial” social media groups, this new webpage is a place where you can find accurate information in a timely manner.  This is an expansion of CCSD’s long-standing commitment to transparency and accountability and a part of our nationally recognized Open CCSD transparency project and webpage at
