Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! 
Top of Page

This year has been unprecedented in many ways. As a district, we appreciate the hard work of our parents and staff to finish last school year under very trying circumstances. Since our closure of schools in March, we have been planning for our reopening given the new circumstances we are facing. 
 
Many of our early plans had to be shelved because guidelines, expectations, funding, and the spread of COVID-19 were constantly changing. This environment taught us flexibility is key in planning for the 2020-21 school year as we acknowledge this disease is not going to be predictable or act in a linear fashion. 
 
This document represents the foundation to start our school year. As we have learned from the last few months, change is inevitable, and we will continue to hone the guidelines as our school year continues. In planning for this year, we were guided by the following principles:
  • Student and staff safety
  • Educational program quality
  • Students and staff returning to a physical school site for in person learning
  • Parent choice in programs
  • Staff engagement, training and support
  • Offering a quality distance learning program
  • Collaborating with surrounding districts, Placer County Office of Education, Placer County Health Department
 
This road map is just a map. There will be many decisions and changes along the way. But the roadmap also gives us a way forward to continue our essential duty of educating and supporting students.
