This is a reminder that our 1st through 5th grade students will return for In-Person learning on Monday, February 1st. All students who selected the Distance Learning option will remain with Distance Learning. The Stanislaus County Public Health Department has directed that Kindergarten students must remain on Distance Learning at this time. We will be able to welcome our Kindergarten students back for In-Person Learning when the daily positivity rate reaches 25 per 100,000 residents.
The Stanislaus County Public Health Department has also issued new guidance that requires all children over the age of 2 to wear a face mask while in public. All students must wear face coverings during the day unless you have a waiver from your doctor. If you need a waiver, please contact your child’s school. We look forward to your return for In-Person Learning on Monday, February 1st.
LCFF Budget Overview for Parents
For the 2020-21 school year school districts must work with parents, educators, students, and the community to develop a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan). The Learning Continuity Plan replaces the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) for the 2020–21 school year and provides school districts with the opportunity to describe how they are planning to provide a high-quality education, social-emotional supports, and nutrition to their students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
School districts receive funding from different sources: state funds under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), other state funds, local funds, and federal funds. LCFF funds include a base level of funding for all LEAs and extra funding - called "supplemental and concentration" grants - to LEAs based on the enrollment of high needs students (foster youth, English learners, and low-income students).
Learning Continuity & Attendance Plan 2020-2021
Senate Bill 98 established that districts write a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan for the 2020–2021 school year. The plan addresses how learning will occur during the COVID-19 crisis. The Plan can be viewed below:
