Revised Reopening Plan (9/22/2020)
CVSD's Reopening Plan is intended to communicate specific components of the District's plans and preparations for reopening schools in fall 2020 and beyond.

Option 1: Hybrid 
We believe that our students learn best when in the classroom. This option provides a blend of both in-person and remote instruction while practicing increased physical distancing.

Option 2: Remote (CV Cyber Academy)
We understand that in-person learning may not be possible for some of our families.  CVSD's Cyber Academy delivers full-time online instruction for students, upon request.

In addition to fully-remote (CV Cyber) and Hybrid (2 in-person days per week) options, families may now elect to have students attend in-person +2 additional days per week.
