Return to School Survey

We are asking all families to complete the “Return to School” survey linked below.  The information provided by you will be invaluable as we plan for the return to school next year.

If you think your responses about intention and preferences for a return would be consistent for all of your students, you can complete the survey once listing all of your students names.

If you think the responses might differ, please complete the survey once for each student. Thank you for taking the time to help us plan for the upcoming school year.

School Closure & Remote Learning Surveys

In accordance with Governor Baker’s order, the Carver Public Schools will be closed through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  Our last day of remote learning for students and teachers will be Friday, June 19th.

Carver Public Schools are seeking your feedback on the current Remote Learning plan.

The survey will be open and accepting responses through this Friday, April 24th.  We will use the information from the surveys, as well as additional DESE guidance, and feedback from teachers to revise and adjust our plan as necessary.

There are still many questions to be answered in the coming weeks. We will constantly be evaluating the situation, seeking input from teachers, students and parents to make the best decisions we can for our students.

Please see the links below for the Remote Learning Check-In Surveys.
Please note these may open in a new tab.

April Vacation and Grading/Assessment Updates

Please see the attached letter from the Superintendent regarding clarification on the assessments for remote learning.

Letter from Superintendent 4.13.2020

In addition, please note the following change to the school calendar:

Last Friday, the Commissioner of Education released guidance that if school districts decided to work though April vacation that those days would count as school days.  Based on the fact that many families are at home and looking for the continuity of continuing with school, the School Committee voted last night to have teachers and students work through the April vacation.

Monday, April 20th is a state holiday (Patriots Day) and will not be a school day.  Tuesday, April 21st through Friday, April 24th will be school days.  The staff will post work for that week on Tuesday morning April 21st.  As a result of working through April vacation week, the last day of school, will be Friday, June 19th.

If this decision causes a hardship for your family please contact your building principal.
