Discussion/Action Calendar

6.a. Approve Action to Delay the In-Person Opening of Schools in Grades 7-12 through December 17, 2020 (Semester One) Recommended Motion: It is recommended that the Board of Education take action to delay the in-person opening of schools in grades 7-12 through December 17, 2020 (semester one).

On September 10, 2020 the Board of Education took action to reopen all secondary schools (grades 7-12) on October 12, 2020. With the input from all secondary site principals and the need to further assess the support structures for student learning and instruction while in-person and at home via distance learning within the Level 2 Hybrid model, a delay in the secondary school start date is necessary. Principals, teachers and district administrators will work together to assess the current model and enhance the instructional and support components for our students to provide a quality instructional program under these challenging circumstances. Planning will also consider small cohorts for in-person instruction. This change will not affect elementary schools, students currently receiving SDC services (TK-12) or the Cloud Campus.
