4/9: Latest From Dr. Lux
Crown Point Parents and Students,
With two weeks of extended distance learning now completed, students (and their parents) are to be congratulated for their academic effort and accomplishments. Teachers are also to be commended for their diligent work in providing a quality learning experience for students.
It is disappointing for everyone, especially the senior class of 2020, not to have in-school classes. Listed below is updated information regarding the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. Unfortunately, there are still several matters that are still to be determined.
Wishing everyone an enjoyable Easter weekend.

Crown Point Parents, Students, Staff and Community Members
This afternoon Dr. McCormick, State Superintendent of Pubic Instruction, at Governor Holcomb’s press conference, announced that Indiana Public Schools will continue Distance Learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.
For students in Grades K-11, Distance Learning will continue according to the present procedures at this time.
For 12th grade students, Dr. McCormick has stated that the major intent at this time is to assist current seniors to meet their graduation requirements. Current 12th grade students have many different needs to be met. At this time, there has not yet been a list of specific possible waivers, procedures and regulations that will be related to all of our seniors’ specific needs.
It is realized that many elements come in to play for our seniors – AP classes/exams, Dual Credit, CTE classes, required credits, etc. All of these elements will be resolved. I am sure that action and information will be taken and released as quickly as possible from the Department of Education. High School administrators, counselor and teachers will be working in the best interests of our students and will be in touch individually with seniors as needed.
In the meantime, current 12th grade classes will also continue according to the current Distance Learning process and procedures.
In this time of transition, everyone’s patience is appreciated.
Rest assured, that providing a quality learning experience for all of our students for the remainder of the school year will be the top priority of the dedicated and committed teachers, administrators and support staff of the Crown Point Community School Corporation.
