The third grading period for secondary students kicked off Jan. 4 and runs through March 12, while the third grading period for elementary students is Feb. 1-April 9. The selection window for students in pre-K to fifth grade is Jan. 11-17.
According to district data, about 40% of high school enrollment and 38% of middle school enrollment are in CFISD’s virtual learning program for the third grading period. This is a slight decline from the second grading period—from 42% of high school students and 41% of middle school students.
Officials continue efforts to make CFISD a 1-1 district, equipping all students with a Chromebook regardless of need. By just before the winter break, all high schools had received student devices, and officials said all CFISD Connect students who requested a device had received one.
“These devices will enable teachers to transform learning anytime, anywhere, allowing students to reach their full potential for college and career readiness,” said Katie Gentry, director of the 1-1 program and inventory systems. “The spirit of CFISD was evident in this project as many departments stepped up and heeded the call to think outside the box to make this happen in an expedient manner for our high school students across the district.”
Meanwhile, 52% of elementary students and 46% of middle school students have been issued Chromebooks, officials said.
