 2020-2021 School Calendar Modification

May 3, 2021

To: Students, Parents
Fr: Kevin Smith, Superintendent
Su: 2020 – 2021 School Calendar Modification

With approval of the Indiana State Board of Education, in conjunction with Indiana code 20-30-2-3, of the Covington Community School Corporation flexibility wavier request, during their April 2021 meeting, the following modifications are being made to the 2020 – 2021 school year calendar:

  1. CCSC will utilize instructional minutes, rather than instructional days in order to meet Indiana code requirements for student instruction;
  2. The final two days of the school year will be aligned for staff professional development, including a focus around closing out the current year, while preparing for the 2021 – 2022 school year;
  3. In alignment with number two above, the last student instructional day will now be Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
  4. The building principals will be coordinating year – end schedules over the coming days.
    I am proud of the work our children and staff have done this year in order to ensure effective learning.
    I appreciate each of our children and the respective parents and guardians for your patience, understanding, and cooperation throughout the 2020 – 2021 school year.

    Thank you.
    Kevin

Fr: Kevin Smith
Su: Social Worker

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Amber Young to our CT family. Ms. Young will serve our middle school in the role of social worker, beginning Monday, March 29, 2021.

A graduate of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Ms. Young earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology in 2016. She has gained extensive experience in multiple roles during the past 14 years, which have prepared her for the new role with CCSC.

Amber is entering her second year of the Indiana State School Counseling Program, through which she will earn her master’s degree.

Concerning her new role Ms. Young stated:
“I am happy to be a part of this team. The following services will be offered daily until the end of the year: individual counseling sessions grief, study skills, friendship/social skills, anger management, crisis intervention, and trauma services.”

Ms. Young and her husband Mike are the parents of Alex and Jayce.
