Eastern Carver County Schools has received one-time federal funding via three stimulus bills to be used to cover costs incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds were used for things like "super substitutes" - districtwide positions added to ensure regular coverage of classrooms at a time when substitutes were in short supply, personal protective equipment, and increased cleaning and sanitation costs. The third stimulus bill, the American Rescue Plan, was signed into law on March 11, 2021. The district was allocated approximately $1.45 million in ESSER III funds as part of that legislation.
The public is invited to provide any feedback on the plan to email@example.com. The deadline for feedback is September 29, 2021.

Earlier today, a lockdown was triggered at Chanhassen High School. We immediately followed our procedures to make sure our students and staff were safe. We have no reason to believe there was a threat to the school. We believe an electrical malfunction was the cause of the alarm.
Teachers in Eastern Carver County Schools not only lead instruction but also facilitate learning for each student. They teach by guiding students towards mastery of content and instilling 21st century skills. Students have access to a variety of resources and tools, and teachers connect student learning beyond the classroom.
Engagement with Learning Tools
With teachers as facilitators, students use a variety of educational tools and resources to maximize learning. While technology will never replace the role of the teacher, it will shape the future careers of our students. Our goal is to prepare students for success beyond high school, wherever their aspirations take them.
Most living and working environments have changed dramatically over the last several decades. Design of spaces and their furnishings reflect purpose: how we live, how we work, and how we learn. We are redefining learning spaces with a variety of furniture, layouts and technology that facilitate collaboration, creativity, comfort, and safety. They also convey a sense of belonging and purpose. School should be a place where students feel welcomed and empowered to learn.
Learner Voice & Choice
Students have the freedom to design the way they showcase their learning based on individual styles, experiences, passions, and needs. Respected as capable co-designers, learner agency is cultivated throughout all learning experiences. As learners become increasingly self-aware they grow into their own best advocates: showcasing their learning based on their individual styles, experiences, passions, needs, and knowing “what’s next” for their ongoing development.
