Draft school reopening plan targets safety, hybrid instruction models for fall 2020

The Board of Education reviewed during its meeting this week a preliminary plan to resume instruction for this upcoming school year. The first day of instruction is still on Aug. 10. This draft plan includes provisions for in-person instruction, distance learning, and hybrid options that include a combination of several models.  

The plan was designed by the newly-formed Innovation Design Team (IDT) under the direction and guidance of the Board, Superintendent Jerry Almendarez, and other district leadership, with student and staff safety as the top priority.

This preliminary plan was crafted so instruction can efficiently shift between models as we continue to navigate through this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As the IDT works to finalize this plan, it will continue to seek input through surveys, forums, and other communication avenues from community stakeholders, including students, parents, teachers, and staff. The IDT expects to submit a final version of this plan for Board to review and consider for approval on June 23.
