TK-6 Waiver and Small Group In Person Education
Change, Change, and More Change
If you are paying attention to our Governor, you will know there have been many changes since March 2020. It seems as if once we get used to one change and a plan, another change comes our way. We are living flexibility. Last week we were given the newest guidance to open public schools for small groups. Please see this link guidance for small groups.
This new guidance allows us to offer in person education (without a waiver) to our students. With this new information, we will have to consider what this might look like at our campus. We have a solid Safe Reopen plan (see website) that could guide us through the process. We will have to think about how to serve the students who will choose an alternative educational pathway - because we do have families that will opt for that option.
Additionally, our school has applied for the TK-6th grade waiver to offer in person education. We have a survey from our families that indicate 87% of families want us to move forward with the waiver process and we have survey results from our bargaining unit that shows 7 out of 8 teachers wanting us to move forward with the waiver process. Our School Board is in favor of us moving forward with the waiver as well. In leader meetings, the message has been that the waiver is pretty hard to get - and it is an in-depth process. Once the final word comes to us - either an approval or a denial by the State of California, the information will be shared.
We will keep you posted and give plenty of notice of how we will open our school to small groups. It is our utmost desire to have all students on campus. As of right now, we plan to go back to school on October 5th. The planning committee and the School Board will be meeting this week to determine if/when the open date will change. We will let you know asap.
Please know we do have an alternative educational plan for those who would like to stay home. Please see our website for our Safe Reopen plan.
