For students who have been assigned a school Chromebook/computer device, please read the following information regarding safe-keeping of your device during the Christmas Break starting December 19th through January 4th. During this time, IT text message, IT e-mail support, and on-site IT support will be suspended at CPA and will resume on Monday, January 4th, 2021.

  • You should keep the laptop on a flat, steady surface. Also try to keep it away from, or out of spilling range of, any drinks or food you might be consuming.
  • If your laptop doesn’t have a permanent home, create a consistent storage place for it. You can keep the laptop in a drawer, bookcase, or cupboard, or in the box with the rest of the laptop stuff. Keeping it in the same place means that you can always find it when you need it.
  • Avoid putting the laptop in a spot where it can overheat. Today’s laptops get hot all by themselves, and anything you can do to help keep the laptop cool is good.
  • Avoid putting the laptop in a spot where it can be exposed to extreme cold. Do not leave your device in a vehicle overnight if temperatures fall below freezing.
  • Always ensure that your device is secured from possible theft or damage by others.

Please remember that your assigned device is the sole property of CPA School District. The privilege of CPA being able to provide these devices to our students is made possible via Federal Grant Funds. CPA must ensure that these devices are properly maintained and kept free from damage in order to receive future funding.

Reading Matters at CPA!

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Being a good reader is critical for a student to be successful in school. In 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed the Read by Grade Three Law to ensure that students are reading at or above grade level when they exit third grade. In accordance with this law, and as a means of better informing classroom instruction, districts across the state will be providing K-3 assessments to their students.


The assessments will help identify students who need additional reading instruction and intervention. It will also provide useful information to help teachers tailor their instruction to better meet the individual needs of each student. Students in grades K-3 will be assessed at the beginning, middle and end of the school year.


The law also requires districts to provide early and regular written communication with parents of students in grades K-3 with reading difficulties. This communication will be in the form of an Individualized Reading Improvement Plan which will include information about current support provided, additional support planned for your child, and strategies for you to help your child at home (Read-At-Home plan).


For the past few years, Chandler Park Academy Elementary has assessed K-3 students three times per year and has provided support for students who are below grade level in reading. All third-grade students will be required to take the state assessment at the end of the year. This year, third-grade students who are one or more years below grade level in reading on the state assessment will require additional procedures to continue to fourth grade. At that time, affected families will receive written notice from the State of Michigan about possible retention and the process for a good cause exemption. Although our schools focus on early literacy throughout the school day, we still need your support as family involvement plays a vital role in a child’s academic success.


For more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Best Regards,

Andre Anderson, Principal

Welcome CPA Parents!

We are ready to start a great year of adventures in learning!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Chandler Park Academy School District for the 2022-23 school year. The Chandler Park Academy staff and I are thankful and honored that you have chosen our school family to educate your child.

My name is Mr. Ken Williams and I am the District Director of Culture and Community Engagement. I have been a part of the CPA family for over 16 years. I have served as a teacher, dean of students, assistant principal and most recently, CPA Middle School principal. In my new role, I will be working as a liaison with parents, administration and the community to develop programs and opportunities for the CPA family. Also, I will be the coordinator of our District-wide Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), which we socially call our Parents as Partners Network (PPN).

As a former school administrator, I recognize that students are most successful when parents have a voice and place working in partnership with the school. I firmly believe in giving your child the best educational experience possible, and in order for this to happen, it is essential parents, that parents are active partners. I will be available to meet and talk with parents regarding issues or ideas they have for the CPA School District. My goal is to ensure that you and your student have a positive educational journey at CPA.

I am formally inviting all of you out to our District-Wide PPN meetings that will take place every 3rd Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. virtually during this time. This is a parent-led group, and at the meeting you can learn of some great things that are going on at each school that you may not know about, learn what parents are doing to make the school district better, get parent resources, sign up to become a volunteer, and to have a fun time coordinating social events and working with other parents who want the best for their child as well.

If you ever have any suggestions, issues, questions, comments or concerns and need my assistance in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email at williamsk@chandlerparkacademy.net

District Director of Culture and Community Engagement
