We have been actively developing Return-to-Learn plans for the 2020-2021 school year and know the importance of being prepared for multiple scenarios. We are building plans around three potential pathways: on-site learning, continuous online learning, and a hybrid model. For detailed information about the three models, visit the  Return-to-Learn guidance on the Iowa Department of Education website.

We have developed teams in seven targeted areas: leadership, infrastructure, health/safety, academic standards, social-emotional-behavioral health, equity, and data. These teams are charged with creating comprehensive plans in all three learning models (on-site, continuous online learning, and hybrid). To follow along with our work, please visit our  CF Return-to-Learn website ,  which will be continually updated as we gain more information.

The Department of Education asked school districts to submit assurances by July 1, 2020, which indicates our intent to have Return-to-Learn plans in place for the fall. The process of creating those plans will continue through the summer as we work to garner feedback from our families and staff, learn from our experience last spring, and work with stakeholders to create flexible and comprehensive plans to reopen schools.

Our hope is to open schools as in-person with students on Monday, August 24, with mitigation and safety procedures that will be announced soon. We now need additional feedback and input from you and your student(s).
We would like to hear from ALL students and suggest family members help students who are in grades PreK-3 complete the survey. Students in grades 4-12 should be able to complete this survey by themselves. The surveys will be open until July 12. At the end of the survey, you are able to submit additional questions you have. This will help us develop an FAQ for families.

Thank you for your patience and commitment to education. We are working hard to make our return-to-learn plans flexible and student-focused.
