If your student is at the CAA site but taking a class that is exclusively online, below is the latest procedures. We would love to have your input on learning space options for your online learner as we continue to build out our hybrid in-person learning infrastructure:

Students at CAA that are attending classes designated as online must bring their own device along with headphones (with a mic).  They should connect to the guest network and join their class via their device. The observation area is a good place for them to be seated in while attending their online class from their device. If they are unable to independently connect to their class, they will need a care provider’s assistance to make that connection. The CAA site manager can provide the CAA Guest network connection information.
