Teachers at 36 schools will welcome back more than 26,000 students. CCPS has a back to school page on the school system website, http://www.ccboe.com/backtoschool2015.php that includes important information for students and parents.
To prepare for the first day of school for students, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kimberly Hill sent a welcome message on Aug. 28 to all parents and staff to highlight the start of another year of teaching and learning. Dr. Hill is also hosting a live Twitter chat next Thursday, Sept. 3, from 4 to 5 p.m. in which parents, students, staff and the general community can offer feedback on the first week of school.
To participate in the chat, follow CCPS on Twitter @CCPS or at https://twitter.com/ccps and use the hash tag #ccpschat in your message. CCPS plans to use Twitter chats throughout the school year to provide another outlet for community engagement.
