This past school year, students and teachers around the nation (and world) persevered through what has been perhaps one of the most challenging years in the history of education. Calvary Christian Academy’s students and staff were no exception.
Despite the challenging and unprecedented circumstances, they gracefully adapted the school’s new health and safety procedures as well as mobile/hybrid learning.
Mobile Learning Decision
This past semester, CCA’s leadership team has been determining the feasibility of offering a mobile learning option for the 2021-22 school year. After surveying CCA parents who had one or more children designated as full-time mobile learners and reviewing the data from those who completed the survey, a decision was made to only move forward with on-campus instruction in 2021-22.
The survey results revealed that less than 1% of CCAH’s community had a desire to learn remotely,
The survey results revealed that less than 1% of CCAH’s community had a desire to learn remotely, understanding the limited class offerings and medical requirements this potential option would entail.
Additionally, translating discipleship programming into both in-person and online experiences proved to be a challenge during the 2020-21 school year. Being that this is one of the most defining aspects of CCA that transforms students’ lives year after year, the leadership team believed that executing these experiences at the highest levels of excellence for every Eagle was essential.
Contact Tracing for 2021-22
In the event students are contact traced and asked by administration to quarantine during the 2021-22 school year, they will have the opportunity to continue their studies remotely through the high-definition cameras that were installed in each classroom.
God’s Faithfulness in 2020-21
The Lord’s covering was evident when CCA’s Hollywood Campus resumed in-person learning last fall. The fact that CCAH saw a minimal amount of COVID cases on campus throughout the school year is on par with various research studies that have concluded children are not major spreaders of COVID.
also reported that “in-person learning in schools has not been associated with substantial community transmission.”
The CDC also reported that “in-person learning in schools has not been associated with substantial community transmission.”
Health & Safety Protocols for 2021-22
The abovementioned outcome along with the expansion of vaccine access in South Florida were determining factors that led CCA’s leadership team to ease certain on-campus protocols for the 2021-22 school year, including temperature checks and face covering requirements for students and staff.
Students and staff will now have the option of wearing a face covering indoors and outdoors should they choose to do so.
Students and staff will now have the option of wearing a face covering indoors and outdoors should they choose to do so. Parents who desire for their child(ren) to wear a face covering on campus will need to have that conversation with their child(ren); CCAH staff will not be responsible for holding students accountable.
The school’s janitorial staff will continue to remain vigilant about disinfecting high-touch surfaces frequently, and administrators will be closely monitoring the situation as we march on forward to further our God-given mission of Making Disciples.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” -Ephesians 3:20-21 (NIV)
