Feb. 4, 2021 Update

Dear Families,

Welcome to Bend-La Pine Schools’ Comprehensive Distance Learning option for high school. We are excited to serve our high school students and provide this option that allows students a chance to stay connected with district teachers and students, while learning remotely.

Learn more about our program: High School District CDL Website

At the heart of our District CDL program, are Bend-La Pine Schools teachers, who will be teaching students core content via live WebEx instruction and assigned work through Canvas. Elective courses will be offered through Bend-La Pine Schools Online using the FuelEd/Peak platforms.

Wendy McCulloch, secondary principal for the District CDL program, is creating the high school schedule. She is coordinating with high school counselors to examine the schedules for all students enrolled in the District CDL program.As a team, they are determining needs to create individualized course schedules. We will then build each student’s daily schedules.Once this is complete, individual teachers will reach out to families with schedules and course details. We expect you to hear from teachers by the end of the day Tuesday, Feb. 9, if not sooner. We expect instruction to begin by Thursday Feb 11.

We know that many of you may have additional questions and we hope to connect with you in the coming days and weeks as we partner to create a meaningful learning experience for your student.

All the best,

Juan Cuadros, Executive Director of Teaching and Learning
