    Superintendent's Reopening Update: 7.2.20

    Dear Families, Students, and Employees:

    I hope you are all able to have a safe and relaxing Fourth of July weekend.

    Reopening of School 2020-21

    The Reopening Committee has created an overview document highlighting the work so far. Click here to review the document. Please note that this information is subject to change based on local health conditions and our negotiations with our collective bargaining partners. We are still waiting on the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health orders to be released for education. We will be reviewing these orders and will be updating our plans as necessary. These orders are the official health documents that we must abide by as we reopen schools.

    Here are a couple of key updates for this week:

    -        Grading: Regardless of the instructional model families select, all students will receive traditional standards-based or letter grades next year.

    -        Hybrid Schedules: TK-12 will offer a Monday-Thursday AM/PM model, with Friday 100% at-home learning. For middle and high school all six classes will be taught the whole semester. Please see the schedules/minutes section.

    -        Distance Learning Model: We are still exploring a couple of options for our distance learning model. Additional information will be shared shortly.

    -        Model Selection: Within the next couple of weeks you will receive an email asking you to indicate which model (either hybrid or 100% distance learning) you will select for the fall. We realize that there are still many questions you may have and health conditions will change. However, we need to begin to start planning our class rosters and schedules for August 17. If you do not complete the model selection, you will automatically be placed in the hybrid model.

    Additional information will be presented during our July 16 Board of Education meeting at 7pm.

    Current information is available on this website https://www.burbankusd.org/Reopening. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) https://www.burbankusd.org/reopeningfaqs. You may also email your comments to re-opening@burbankusd.org.

    By continuing to work together, we will build a stronger BUSD.

    Take care,

    Matt Hill, Ed.D.
