Latest Update: Board of Education
Approves to Continue Distance Learning through June 15, 2021
Distance Learning/In Person Instruction Recommendation
At the July 15, 2020 Board meeting, the Franklin-McKinley School District Board of Education approved Distance Learning to be offered from August 17-December 18, 2020. Santa Clara County has recently moved to the orange tier on the State's COVID-19 Monitoring Blueprint for Safety system. School districts in the orange or yellow tier have the ability to offer in-person instruction following Public Health Guidelines.
The Reopening Advisory Workgroup and the Administration after evaluating the conditions and listening to stakeholders is recommending that the district remain in distance learning until February 12, 2021. This recommendation includes focused efforts on enhancing distance learning. At the same time, the Workgroup and staff will design a possible in-person option for all students. If it is not feasible to provide in-person instruction in February, the Workgroup may recommend a plan to offer individual/small group instruction for identified students who require additional support following Public Health guidelines.
The board will be considering this recommendation at its virtual school board meeting on November 10, 2020. If you wish to address the board regarding this recommendation you can sign up to speak using the following link: https://us02web.zoom.us/
