The Governing Board received a report on our current reopening approach during a Special Board meeting yesterday; no formal action was taken.
The update outlined reopening safety guidelines and presented an overview of on-campus and virtual learning options as well as hybrid model contingency planning. A recording of the meeting is available here. Staff will host a town hall forum on July 23 to solicit input and respond to community questions. Additional information and instructions on how to participate/submit questions will be provided on Friday, July 17.
A successful response to this pandemic requires a whole community effort. Schools do not operate independent of the communities we serve; we are interdependent and all plans must be responsive to current public health conditions. Precautions, mitigation, protocols and schedules for any school reopening plan are as dependent upon what is happening outside our jurisdiction as within. This responsibility is shared by us all.
Information related to CUSD's reopening plans for the fall is dynamic. We receive and respond to data and review current public health guidance on a daily basis. As the impacts of COVID-19 shift in San Diego County, so do approaches and directives for public schools. As conditions change, so do plans. As such, we are not able to share a definitive plan at this time. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work diligently in order to respond to a variety of reopening scenarios for August 27. Please trust that our commitment to resuming instruction is steadfast, while prioritizing the health and well-being of our students and staff.
