Parents & Students:
Canadian ISD wants to take this opportunity to let you know how grateful we are for our parents, students and community. We are so fortunate to have faculty and staff members that are committed to serving our students and families here in Canadian. We want to say thank you for the support during this time of remote instruction. We recognize the challenges that come with our new remote learning environment. We appreciate all the feedback you have given us as we implement this new system.
As we move further into the final six weeks grading period (began on April 6th), we want to assure you that our focus remains on doing what is best for our students and families during these challenging times. We believe that feedback is essential to the learning process, and provides our students and parents with a way to monitor and measure student learning. Beginning with April 6th in our gradebook, teachers will enter letter grades for assignments (as described in the next paragraph). Every class will have one grade at the beginning of the final grading period that we are calling a Place Holder Grade (we will enter a 100 for that Place Holder Grade for every student). The Place Holder Grade is just a blank grade that is required in our grade book program so that our teachers can start using the modified letter grades for remote instruction assignments.
During this time of closure, CISD will have a modified grading procedure. We will not enter number grades for assignments given during remote instruction. Furthermore, assignments given during the time of remote instruction will not be used for GPA calculation or class ranking. Teachers will review student work and provide feedback. Students are expected to complete work to receive credit in their courses. Click here to view the At-Home-Learning Grading Procedures and descriptions of the grades below:
Please contact your teacher(s) or campus principals if you have questions.

Dear CISD Parents,
Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-14 extends current school closure until May 4. Here in Canadian ISD, we will continue to provide remote instruction. As much as possible, we want to handle learning activities and communication through online, email, and phone. For those students who do not have access to dependable internet or cell coverage, we want to practice all precautionary measures such as social distancing, frequent hand washing, and using gloves to handle materials whenever possible. Our campuses have established guidelines for picking up materials with no, or minimal, person to person interaction. If you have any questions, please contact the campus principal.

Estimados padres de CISD,
La Orden Ejecutiva GA-14 del Gobernador Abbott extiende el cierre actual de la escuela hasta el 4 de mayo. Aquí, en Canadian ISD, continuaremos brindando instrucción remota. En la medida de lo posible, queremos manejar las actividades de aprendizaje y la comunicación a través de Internet, correo electrónico y teléfono. Para aquellos estudiantes que no tienen acceso a Internet confiable o cobertura celular, queremos practicar todas las medidas de precaución, tales como distanciamiento social, lavado frecuente de manos y uso de guantes para manipular materiales siempre que sea posible. Nuestros campus han establecido pautas para recoger materiales sin interacción mínima o de persona a persona. Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con el director de la escuela.
Mantenerse a salvo,
Lynn Pulliam Superintendente
