Carman-Ainsworth develops online instructional survey for parents

FLINT TWP. — With the 2019/2020 school year winding to a close, Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools is continuing to develop contingency plans for the upcoming school year.

To assist with the process, CACS has created a survey for parents and guardians to collect input regarding distance/online learning during the school closure. The survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/5ZXF8MG.

Carman-Ainsworth is also pursuing a goal to provide every K-12 student with a Chromebook for the 2020/2021 school year. During the school shutdown this year, the district handed out hundreds of devices to promote successful online learning.

“This project will empower students to become facilitators of their own learning, rather than just consumers of information,” said Superintendent Eddie Kindle. “Our 1:1 digital learning initiative will provide equitable access to a powerful instructional tool that will provide our learning community with the means to collaborate, communicate and most importantly, create.”

Kindle said that more details on the district’s contingency plans for the 2020/2021 school year will be available in the coming weeks. — B.G.
