Check back often as things are constantly changing....

In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, Chandler Unified School District (CUSD) has developed a remote learning plan so our students can continue learning experiences while our school buildings are closed. As we navigate this new learning format, this site offers supplemental and instructional resources for students and teachers. Online instruction will use Microsoft Teams, GSuite, Google Classroom and Infinite Campus. More specifics about this can be found under the Elementary and Secondary Sections below. We appreciate your patience and flexibility.

What you need to know.

  • This is an unprecedented event requiring implementation of just-in-time online learning and teaching

  • We can't be physically next to you, but by using technology with most of us and by delivery of physical resources to some, ALL students can continue to learn. ALL teachers can continue to teach. ALL schools can continue to function.

What CUSD is doing about it.

  • CUSD is providing both online and paper supplemental resources at each site.

  • CUSD will be providing online instruction for most, and paper resources for some.

What you need to do about it.

  • Students can securely get to their online communication and curricular resources. Information will be coming from your child's teacher as well as the information below.

  • Teachers and students can then connect online.

  • Some Special Education students and very young children may need help if online resources require authentication. Your child's teacher is best equipped to address this question.

Getting Started

Digital Citizenship

We cannot expect students to make the transition to online without preparing them for the online world. Take some time to discuss digital citizenship with your child and your students. Teach them how to interact with others online. We recommend using lessons from Common Sense Media . You will find a lesson for each grade in the following areas:

  • Media Balance and Well Being

  • Privacy and Security

  • Digital Footprint and Identy

  • Relationships and Communication

  • Cyberbullying, Digital Drama and Hate Speech
