    Superintendent's Reopening Update: 7.30.20

    Dear Families, Students, and Employees:

    With the start of school (August 17) quickly approaching, you will start to receive more direct communication from your school sites. Now is also a good time to establish good sleep schedules and school routines. Start to think about quiet places for learning, technology set ups, and standard school supplies needed (schools and teachers will be providing more details). It is also a great time to pick a final family summer book to read and discuss before school starts. My family is currently reading Just Mercy and Unbroken.

    We have reached a tentative agreement on a Memo of Understanding (MOU) with the Burbank Teachers Association (BTA) for distance learning in the fall. Teachers will be voting on the MOU next week, and the Board of Education will discuss and vote on the MOU at the August 6 Board Meeting at 7pm. You can watch the meeting by clicking here.

    We are continuing to work with the Classified School Employees Association (CSEA) to finalize our MOU.

    Parent Data Confirmation (Registration): You will receive an email from Student Services providing directions for Parent Data Confirmation (registration). They also will be available to answer any questions.

    Technology Support for Families Webinar: On Tuesday, August 18, at 7:00pm Instructional Services will be hosting a support session online for families who are interested in learning more about supporting their child with technology needed for instruction at home. The webinar will highlight support videos, walk parents through technology support tutorials, and provide time for Q & A. Videos and a recording of the session will be available after the session is complete and translation will be provided of materials and the live presentation. Links to the presentation and materials will be shared in next week’s update.

    Technology: Schools sites are starting to distribute technology to individuals who requested devices. You will receive specific information from your principals.

    Child Care: Tomorrow, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health will be releasing new guidelines for offering child care on school campuses. After we have reviewed this guidance we will be sending out specific information regarding child care options for the fall.

    Independent Learning Academy (ILA): If you are interested in the ILA model, please email johnparamo@burbankusd.org for more information by July 31.
