|Chula Vista Elementary School District Special Edition COVID-19 Newsletter 2020-21 Issue #3|
| District to Provide Limited On-Site Childcare Programs Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff Members: With the District starting the new school year using the distance learning instructional model, many families—and school staff—have expressed childcare needs and concerns. I am proud to announce that our District will be able to provide on-site childcare on a limited basis during distance learning, thanks to our partnerships with community-based organizations such as the South Bay Family YMCA. The objective is that, while our teachers execute remote instruction, the YMCA would provide full-day childcare programs Districtwide that support distance learning instruction. In essence, we are repurposing funds and services traditionally utilized for before- and after-school programs to support our instruction during the school day. As you know, we are in an extraordinary period, given the global pandemic and resulting state and local social distancing guidelines. The soonest the childcare programs could start is Tuesday, September 8. We are in the process of implementing protocols consistent with state and local public health guidelines to ensure in-person childcare is available at each of our campuses. Because our staff members are essential workers critical to the success of instruction during distance learning, our teachers will receive priority registration along with foster youth, homeless youth, and other students from families in need. Because the need for childcare is far greater than the number of spots available, we encourage families to explore fee-based licensed childcare programs as well. We understand many of our families need childcare because of work demands. Please bear with us as we explore solutions with you and our community partners. Be on the lookout for additional details. Sincerely, Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D.|

| Summer Learning Camp is Underway Our District’s Summer Learning Camp began on August 10 in a distance learning model. Special thanks go out to the 184 teachers who are providing instruction to about 1,800 students in a virtual format. The Summer Learning Camp will serve students who were selected and invited to attend based on assessment data from earlier this spring, which indicated a need for intervention and to address possible learning loss. The Summer Learning Camp includes a rigorous instructional day for students through a structured daily schedule. This program includes some parameters defined in Assembly Bill 77 (AB 77) that increase academic rigor and student-teacher engagement. Also starting on August 10, CVESD’s Special Education Department began a “Recovery Intersession” via a distance learning model. We have deep gratitude for 30 Educational Specialist Teachers, seven Speech and Language Pathologists, three Occupational Therapists, an Adapted Physical Education Teacher, and a School Psychologist who are each supporting this opportunity. We are also thankful for the 25 principals who are hosting classes and supporting teachers and students. The Recovery Intersession helps narrow learning loss that may be due to COVID-19 closures for students with Specialized Academic Instruction. It is also an opportunity for students to have sessions in speech and language if they receive those services during the school year. The Recovery Intersession includes a rigorous instructional day for students through a structured daily schedule with many opportunities for individualized and small group instruction.|
|Proposed Partnership to Focus on School Safety When In-person Instruction Resumes Our District and biotechnology firm Kahala Biosciences have engaged in exploratory conversations around the development of a COVID-19 continuous quality improvement project when schools eventually resume in-person instruction. Working with possibly five of our schools and with voluntary participation, the proposed project would focus on determining the level of active cases among our District population, identifying what interventions work to mitigate spread of the virus, and analyzing the emotional response by students and staff toward testing and symptom monitoring. The Governor’s recently announced pandemic plan centered on five key areas, including public health guidance that recommends “staff in every California school be tested for COVID-19 periodically based on local disease trends and as testing capacity allows.” The Governor also announced that the state will provide resources and technical assistance for COVID-19 case follow-up in school settings.
