    Welcome to the Cleveland STEM HS Counseling Center 


    August 31, 2020

    Dear Cleveland Families:

    For those who are new to Cleveland, and those who are returning, welcome!  We thank you for your continued patience while waiting for key information about the 2020-2021 school year.  In this letter, we will share information about:

    1. Our laptop distribution event on Thursday, September 3, from 12 – 3 pm.
    2. The special schedule we will be following during “Strong Start Week”—beginning on our first day of school, Friday, September 4, and continuing until Friday September 11. 
    3. Our regular academic schedule during online learning, which will start on Monday, September 14th.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How will my student get to their first online class on Friday, September 4?

    Your student should check their SPS email for an invitation from their teacher to the virtual classroom.  More information coming soon to help students who are new to SPS email.

    How can my student see their schedule?

    Students can see their schedules on The Source, starting on the evening of Thursday September 3rd.

    In the regular online schedule, how long are classes?

    • All students will spend up to 50 minutes per class with a teacher; there are 4 classes per day.
    • Many classes are “blocked”—two periods with the same teacher. 
    • Students will occasionally spend additional time with teachers in small group conferences. 
    • See the online class schedule below for more details

    Why is the schedule different for the first 5 days—the “Strong Start” week?

    • Our district has set this time aside for connecting with students and families, and providing students dedicated time for social/emotional learning (SEL).  
    • We will also use this time as orientation for students to Cleveland and online learning. 
      • Students will learn the basics of our learning management system, Echo
      • Echo replaces Schoology—there will be more info soon about how students and families can learn this system


    If your student is new to Cleveland, please come to our drive-through laptop distribution on Thursday, September 3, from 12 – 3pm.    

    • If your last name begins with A-L, please arrive between 12:00 and 1:30 pm

    • 9th graders who still have to turn in the laptop they received in 8th grade may do so here
    • If you can’t be present on Thursday, look for upcoming messages about distributions happening the following week.


    NOTE:  The schedule below starts on Monday, September 14th

    Blue     =          Time when students are working independently
