In consultation with MDH and Carver County Public Health today, based on recent positive cases and related quarantines, La Academia and Kinder Academy will shift to a distance learning model for a two-week quarantine starting Monday, November 9.
Eastern Carver County Schools students learn at their own pace — it’s part of personalized learning. Students can easily work above grade level in reading and math, and in a few cases some students have gone to a middle school or high school for what they need.
The free meal program is scheduled to continue through the end of 2020, but Federal funding may end at any time. Because we don't know precisely when funding may run out, families who feel they may qualify for free and reduced lunch services should apply online now using the Application for Educational Benefits.

The district will post weekly county and district COVID-19 information on the Return to Learn webpage
Believe it or not, we are already planning for the 2021-2022 school year and we would love to welcome you to Eastern Carver County Schools.
In the event of a weather-related school closing or late start/early release, parents will be contacted by email and phone.
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.
