snowSMART Learning in Christian County

 

What is snowSMART Learning?

snowSMART Learning is a non-traditional instruction program allowing students to continue learning from the home via technology. snowSMART can be utilized on days when students are out of school due to snow/ice, other weather-related closings or widespread illness. When all other options have been exhausted, the Superintendent will decide when days are designated as snowSMART.
We kindly ask students and parents to please keep in mind that snowSMART Learning is a new program. CCPS will continue to look for innovative ways to improve student learning. Feel free to contact your child's principal for questions about the snowSMART Learning program.

Accessing School Assignments
On snowSMART Days, assignments for students can be accessed through Google Classroom and/or by visiting a teacher's classroom website. Communication on student assignments can vary by a student's teacher and/or school. Student login information will be communicated to the student prior to the use of a snowSMART Day. Students will have the option of paper-based assignments. If you are without internet access, the local library is a great resource for available technology (computers, printers, etc.).

Accountability & Teacher Availability
Teachers will discuss expectations with students, prior to the use of snowSMART. Students will be required to meet expectations and fulfill assignment requirements on snowSMART Days. Some teachers may communicate via tools such as email or Remind 101. Communication may vary by teacher and/or school. School specific snowSMART plans will be communicated by your child's school. Hours of teacher availability are from 8-11 AM and 12-3 PM.
