COVID-19: Updates & Guidance
June 5, 2020

Dear School Leaders,

Summer has begun! It has been incredible to see the alternative graduation ceremonies you have come up with. Thank you for sharing these moments with us. If you have not yet done so, please send photos and information on graduations and continuations to Amanda Oberg as soon as possible. Keep an eye out for our graduation newsletter coming to you next week.

Thank you for joining the 2020-21 Learning Plan webinar earlier today. The guidance resource and webinar recording can be found here . A follow up webinar will take place on June 15 (more information below).

As requested, the CSI team has worked to put together some Budget Talking Points that school leaders can share with their boards when discussing budgets for next year and beyond. We have also created a document to help explain the changes to Accountability during COVID-19 , with information on the CARS process and the renewal process. Please use and share these resources.

Some important items added to our Coronavirus Updates web page this week include:

I joined a call with Governor Polis and Commissioner Anthes this afternoon. The Governor shared some helpful information about planning for school in the fall, which I will share on Monday's Weekly Update Call.

2020-21 Organization Submissions & Audits Google Classroom Delay
We are experiencing a delay in the 2020-21 Organizational Submissions & Audits Google Classroom launch. This is because the current classroom is not set up to communicate with G Suite Education accounts. We are troubleshooting the issue now and you will receive an invite to the Google Classroom as soon as it is corrected. If you do not have a G Suite Education or personal Gmail account you can use to manage your submissions, please notify Stephanie Aragon .
