SMMUSD’s Board of Education has approved school reopening under the District Learning Plus model, once SMMUSD is in authorized to reopen. Reopening still depends on the district being within Tier 2 (red) and currently we’re still in Tier 1 (purple), the most restrictive tier.
What does this mean for students?
Under Distance Learning Plus students would continue to learn at home, with the same classes and the same teachers as now, but with the addition of some in-person activities, such as academic support, enrichment, and grade-level or content area projects. In-person activities can be scaled up or down, to meet the demands of the pandemic.
For full details of what the Distance Learning Plus model will look like, see Dr Drati’s message of December 18th. In that message you’ll also find links to the Board of Education presentation and the December survey results that led to the Distance Learning Plus model being approved.
