CCS Families: Plan Now for Blended Learning Days Back In Our Buildings

Columbus City Schools will begin the 2020-2021 school year completely virtual, for all Pre-K through 12th-grade students on September 8th, 2020, to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The District will stay all virtual through at least the first quarter of the Traditional School Year, and at least the first intersession of the Year-Round School. 

As the District leaders monitor public health conditions and determining when it is safe and practical to begin in-person learning experiences, our schools will be ready to start a blended model of learning - in-person instruction (two days a week) and remote at-home learning (three days a week). Depending on the recommendations from our local and state health departments, the move to a Blended Learning Model could come at the beginning of the second quarter (October 29). This option does not apply to those students registered for the CCS Digital Academy for the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year, or for high school students.

To be ready for the shift to a Blended Learning Model, the Parent Portal will open from Wednesday, August 26th through Friday, September 4th at 5:00 p.m. Parents/guardians will be able to choose their preferred weekly schedule for their scholars during this time.

Option 1: Cohort A; allowing students to attend school on Mondays and Tuesdays and participate in remote learning on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays

Option 2: Cohort B; allowing students to attend school on Thursdays and Fridays and participate in remote learning on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.

If a selection is not made, families will be assigned a Cohort for their scholar.

  • If a parent/guardian cannot log into their Parent Portal Account in Infinite Campus, they can get access by sending a picture ID, along with the child's name and date of birth,
  • If a parent/guardian was able to log in before but can't remember the password, just hit "reset the password," and an automatic email will be sent to the email they used when they signed up.
  • If a  parent/guardian does not remember the email used when the account was set up, they can send an email with their picture ID, the student's name, and date of birth to have this information reset.
