Chan/Chaska football games rescheduled

Last night, the Eastern Carver County School District announced the cancellation of the Chanhassen-Chaska varsity football game, scheduled for the evening of Friday, October 16, and the Chanhassen-Chaska junior varsity game on Saturday, October 17.

Chan High Grades Now Posted on Portal

Students and families: Distance learning has been a significant undertaking for teachers, students, and families. The impact on learning is hard to measure; assigning grades has been difficult as well. Eastern Carver County Schools is committed to ensuring that students are not harmed by grading procedures during distance learning. Teachers have been asked to assign grades of A – D that best reflect their measurement of student learning during this period. Students who have not been able to show learning at a minimum level will receive an NG (or No Grade) instead of an F. These grades are now visible through Parent Portal and Student Portal on the report card. To view your grades, follow the steps at this link. Students and families have the option of accepting letter grades (A – D) that have been assigned to you, or you may change any letter grade to a P (or Pass).  The P indicates that a student has met the minimum expectations for the course. Any class receiving a P... Continue reading Chan High Grades Now Posted on Portal
