The DUSD Roadmap to Re-Visioning the 2020-21 School Year
In response to the challenges of COVID-19, DUSD established a Re-Visioning Roadmap Steering Committee consisting of key leaders from each of our district’s stakeholder groups to assist in planning our path forward for the 2020-2021 school year. Since the first week of June, this committee has been studying operational and instructional delivery models and best practices to provide a recommendation for the Board of Education at the Meeting to be held on July 16, 2020. The recommendations of this committee will be informed by the collective input of a TaskForce consisting of over 100 additional district stakeholders comprised of students, parents, teachers, classified staff, management, and community partners who have also been diligently working since the beginning of June. This Taskforce operates in smaller groups with five areas of focus: Instruction, Health & Safety, Social-Emotional Support, Communications & Family Engagement, and Operations. The data points analyzed by both the Steering Committee and Taskforce include information yielded from the Parent Preference and Distance Learning Surveys as well as guidance provided by state, county, and local authorities and public health agencies. Following action by the Board, our entire learning community will be notified of the plan for the 2020-2021 year. At this time, the date for the first day of school remains August 13, 2020.
