Center for Distance Education (CDE) Elementary Program Customer, Currently, CDE is experiencing an unprecedented demand for our online elementary courses. We are currently in the process of training additional highly qualified teachers to be guides, mentors, and instructors for elementary students in our learning program. This training process will be occurring between the dates of September 7th and September 27th. In the meantime, your learner will be assigned one of CDE’s current highly qualified elementary teachers. However, please be aware that they may be assigned to a new permanent instructor by the end of September. Please note, there should be no lapse in the quality of instruction your learner receives while this transition occurs. Even though weekly meetings with the learner's instructor will not begin until they are assigned a permanent instructor, you or your learner may reach out to their current, temporary assigned elementary instructor at any time with questions to receive guidance as they begin their learning journey.
