Planning for the start of school updates
Planning for Mann Middle in the Fall
Start of School Update #1
Many of you have reached out to me given the most recent reporting in the news. I wanted to take the opportunity to share with you a little bit of information at this time.
- The San Diego Unified School District and the San Diego Educators Association (teachers’ union) recently came to an agreement regarding a variety of topics which included the structure and length of the school day during online learning.
- A key component of this agreement states that the school day will include 3 hours of live online whole group; small group instruction, capped at three teaching periods per school day; two hours independent learning and one hour working with other students in small groups or participating in educator office hours.
- Exact start times or the overall structure of the day has not been determined yet.
I plan on sharing more information with families as soon as it becomes available. Until then, I encourage you to review the following SDUSD press release for more information: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-XAEf16HIsZJi-P7W84u0jmPx0-XEoCe/view?usp=sharing
