  • Center Grove is offering an online instructional delivery model, CG Virtual, for the 2020-21 school year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

    CG Virtual students will remain assigned to their home schools. The CG Virtual format is entirely online with no in-person instruction. This instructional delivery model is separate from the eLearning model, which will be used by Traditional students, if CGCSC is required to move all students to online learning. 


    HIGH SCHOOL: GRADES 9-12

    How do I access my classes?
    CGHS is using three different digital platforms to deliver content to you: Global Campus, Plato, and Indiana Online Academy (IOA). In order to know which delivery system each high school course uses, we suggest looking at your schedule in Skyward.

    • Global Campus courses will have a Center Grove teacher’s name next to the course. That course is being delivered via Canvas. To access your Canvas course(s) click here. You will use your CG username and password to access the course(s).
      • Please note that we highly recommend using the web-based version of Canvas, not the app. The Canvas app needs to be updated frequently and if you don’t update, you may have trouble accessing content.
      • Students may be required to attend synchronous sessions if their grade falls below a D in the course.
    • Plato courses will say PLATO on your schedule. We will upload that class for you in Plato. For directions on how to access your Plato course, please click here.
    • Indiana Online Academy courses will say IOA. IOA is a self-enrollment system. To enroll in your IOA class, please follow these instructions . It is important that when you come to the payment portion of the enrollment process that you select the school.
      • You’re not responsible for the payment to IOA. IOA classes begin on January 4th, please make sure that you complete the enrollment process.
      • Please note that IOA has their own teachers. The IOA teacher will communicate with you and will report grades to Center Grove at the mid-term, and end of the semester. IOA will remove students from their virtual course(s) on January 18th if 15% of the course hasn’t been completed. Extensions to complete IOA classes will NOT be granted during the second semester.

    Attendance
    CGHS Virtual students are expected to complete 6 hours of course work each day. We highly suggest and recommend that you and your parent(s) develop a schedule to help you stay on track as you work through the coursework. Attendance is taken by logging into the Canvas system daily and completing a simple attendance task.

    Daily Engagement
    CGHS Virtual students should expect to engage with their content for at least six hours a day. Engagement can be both on-line and off-line. We would again strongly encourage you to create a schedule to stay on track. We have included a template to assist in schedule planning here.

    Teachers may offer synchronous learning opportunities for students. Students that aren’t passing their course(s) with a D or better may be required to attend these sessions in order to assist them in passing the course(s). Failure to make academic progress may result in the student being removed from the course and/or the virtual program.

    Digital Citizenship
    While you are completing your coursework at home, you’re still considered a Center Grove High School student. The student handbook policies and procedures apply to you, even if you’re a virtual student. Unless a CGHS Virtual student has made arrangements and received permission to be on campus during traditional school hours, CGHS Virtual students will not be allowed on campus between the hours of 6:50 a.m. and 2:50 p.m. Monday through Friday.

    Communication
    Teachers have several ways in which they may communicate with students. The most common way is through your Canvas email. Please make sure that you are checking your Canvas email each day. We also highly encourage parents to become Canvas observers. This will allow you to see announcements, due dates, and observe Canvas course content.

    Guidance Counselor
    Virtual students will continue to receive academic support from their CGHS guidance counselor. CGHS guidance counselors are listed below:

    • Mrs. Krukemeier: A, ENL, Early College 9th grade
    • Mr. Stenzinger: B-Crum
    • Mrs. Buck: Cruz-Hard
    • Mrs. Paul: Harg-Lie
    • Mr. Weems: Lif-Pa
    • Mrs. McCarry: Pe-Snid
    • Mrs. Chaplin: Early College 10th-12th grade

    Special Services Students
    As a CGHS Virtual student, we want to make sure that we are meeting the needs of IEP/ILP and S504 students. There are several teachers who work with these students, if your students need support please have them contact the following individuals:

    Textbook Rental Fees
    We will send textbook rental fees out to parents at the end of January.

    Virtual Meals
    CGCSC is excited to provide meal pick-up for our CG Virtual students. The USDA has extended its Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) as part of COVID-19 relief through the end of the 2020-21 school year. This means all students in Center Grove can receive reimbursable meals for breakfast and/or lunch at no cost through May or until USDA funding is depleted. We want to make these meals available to Virtual students as well. 

    HOW IT WILL WORK
    Parents/Guardians will receive an email each week with a form to request pick up for the following week.

    • Meals for Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays will be available for pick up on Mondays from 10:00-10:15 AM.
