- Surrounded by Christ -

Starting Low; Moving Slow; Continually We Grow

- Surrounded by Christ -

St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School, as a ministry of the Church, will first look toward the wellness of our students and their families as well as ourselves. Having accomplished what we can for physical well-being, we will use the spiritual, social, and emotional wellness of our community as our guide. After this, the faculty and staff will work toward maintaining academic achievement from the year and look toward appropriate opportunities to help grow our students and assist our families.

School Administration and School Office

  • Constantly review and revise this plan based upon feedback and data, both objective and subjective, on what is best for the entire student and/or family.
  • Check with each teacher on a regular basis and review his/her resources/delivery to see what is working well and what areas they need additional support.

  • Work with special services teachers to continue to meet the needs of already identified students and also all students as needed.
  • When possible and appropriate, promote critical thinking by asking deep, thought-provoking questions and providing students with opportunities to interact with each other, e.g., posing questions to peers and making comments on others’ posts.

School Schedule

  • In general, classroom work will be posted/e-mailed by 9:00 am on a given day. Some classroom work may be multi-day.
  • Video-conferencing/Live Class -  A survey has been sent. After parental responses,  time-frames will be determined to show the best time of day to have synchronous time.  With known information, K will most likely use Zoom in the evening. Pre-K is planning to zoom Tuesday and Friday at 9:30 am.

Faculty Preparation and Training

  • During this year, our school has participated in the Archdiocesan initiative of the Professional Learning Early Release. These have occurred on Wednesdays when students are released from school an hour early. These meetings, which we call Professional Learning Meetings (PLM), are not merely typical faculty meetings but are designed weekly professional learning. In these, much of it is led by differing faculty and their experiences and expertise. One of these, who is a Google certified trainer, has shared instructional technology to the whole group. These shares mostly have been about Google Classroom. She also has worked one-on-one with teachers and individual needs.
  • Going forward, the same model will be employed with our weekly meeting on Wednesdays except now virtually and on Fridays at 1:00 pm. In addition, faculty and staff know that they may reach out to said teacher or administration in order to receive assistance.

Student Attendance Policy

  • Student attendance will be collected daily. The following prescribed method should be done by 3:00 pm for each day. If attendance is unknown, the office manager will follow the normal school procedures except the follow-through time now will be adjusted to the following morning.
  • 3rd Grade through 8th Grade - There will be one Google Classroom for student attendance. The office manager will collect information in the Google Form and enter it into FACTS SIS
  • Pre-K through 2nd - parents will provide attendance through Class Dojo, and each faculty member will input into FACTS SIS by 3:30 pm of given day.
