St. Joseph Catholic School principal Sara Michaelson has joined the staff of Catholic Community Schools as the director of learning and teaching. Peggy Frederickson will take her position at St. Joseph Catholic School in the fall.
The school “has been facing considerable challenges for some time due to changing demographics, diminishing enrollments and other barriers to long-term operational vitality,” according to a May 1 news release from the diocese.
Cathedral High School started distance learning the week of Nov. 16, but distance learning for K-6 schools in the CCS school system begins Nov. 30. Catholic Community Schools will remain in distance learning through the holidays.
While distance-learning could prove to be necessary in the future, CCS leaders recognize that there is no substitute for in-person instruction, and so far, the precautions taken seem to be working, said CCS President Scott Warzecha.
