During his daily press conference yesterday, Governor Newsom provided information about California’s plan to reopen the economy in four stages. He also made a few comments about the possibility of schools starting early this summer, possibly as soon as July or August. While things change rapidly, at this time we are not discussing starting the school year early in Carlsbad Unified. Our current areas of focus and planning include (but are not limited to): Implementing our approved grading policies and continuing Remote Online Learning in the current school year; Determining alternative plans for graduation and other year-end activities; Initial planning for a variety of scenarios for reopening school when our new school year begins on August 25 ( ); and Waiting for information from the San Diego public health official about extension of the current stay-at-home and school closure order. (If there is a possibility of safely returning to campus in a modified and/or physically- distanced manner this year, we’ll let you know; we currently do not have any indication this will be possible.) As far as wecan tell, everyone was surprised yesterday by the governor’s comments. In an email sent to superintendents following the press conference, State Superintendent Tony Thurmond said “We all heard for the first time today the idea of schools reopening as early as July or August.” He indicated there were “major questions” about topics like ensuring the health and safety of teachers, staff and students. He went on to say “Clearly, for now, we still have more questions than answers.” San Diego County Superintendent Paul Gothold emailed superintendents and said “There was no mention of funding or logistics of making such a shift, or any acknowledgement of previously agreed upon calendars. We are seeking clarity on the governor’s plans and will share additional details as soon as they are available.” We want to encourage students and families to make the most of Remote Online Learning; while we all agree that this is not an ideal situation, we're hopeful that students will keep up with their assigned work in order to be prepared for their next grade level next year. As always, all of our previous communications can be found on our website at .
