Strategic Reopening Plan for the 2020-21 School Year

 
JULY 31, 2020: SCHOOL REOPENING PLAN UPDATE
 
Dear Beaumont USD Parents/Guardians, 

 

Since our last communication to you on July 24th, Beaumont USD has been collaborating with the Beaumont Teachers Association (BTA) and the California School Employees Association (CSEA) to implement the 100% virtual instruction requirements outlined by California Governor Gavin Newsom on July 17, 2020. In preparation for this model of instruction, the first day of school will be moved from Thursday, August 6th to Monday, August 10th to provide our staff two additional days of professional learning and training. Please find a revised 2020-21 school year calendar HERE

 

Earlier this week, our school sites sent out communication to parents regarding schedules, materials, Chromebooks, etc. Please continue to check ParentSquare for additional details and information from your child’s school. 

If you filled out an interest form (survey) a few weeks ago for our 100% online virtual school named 21st Century Learning Institute (CLI), this does not mean your child was automatically enrolled in the program. There is an application process that needs to be completed in order for your child to be fully registered. To enroll your Elementary student in 21st CLI, click HERE.  To enroll your Middle School or High School student in 21st CLI, click HEREFor frequently asked questions regarding 21st CLI, click HERE.  

 

We understand that many of our parents are essential workers. We are gathering information to determine the need in our community for childcare.  We are working with our community at large to connect parents with local organizations that may be able to provide childcare support. Please take a moment to answer the following survey HERE regarding childcare. 

 

Child Nutrition Services is still distributing meals to our students in need. Please provide us with your feedback regarding meal service times and days HERE

 

On July 17, 2020, Governor Newsom announced that all public and private schools will start virtually and may not provide in-person instruction if they are located in a county that is on the state’s monitoring list. Riverside County is currently on the California Department of Public Health’s monitoring list for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) following a surge in new cases and hospitalizations related to the disease. Please see the California Department of Public Health’s County’s Data Monitoring Criteria that is updated on a daily basis. 

Please be assured that we are working diligently to balance the learning needs of students, the impact the virus is having on families, and the health and safety of all in our school community. We remain committed to providing the high quality of education our students deserve. 

 

Respectfully,

Dear Beaumont USD Parents/Guardians, 

 

On July 17, 2020, Governor Newsom announced that all public and private schools will start virtually and may not provide in-person instruction if they are located in a county that is on the state’s monitoring list. Riverside County is currently on the California Department of Public Health’s monitoring list for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) following a surge in new cases and hospitalizations related to the disease. Please see the California Department of Public Health’s County’s Data Monitoring Criteria that is updated on a daily basis. 

Although we have been preparing for three instructional learning models, the health and safety of our school community is not something we can compromise. In accordance with the state’s updated criteria, the Beaumont Unified School District will be starting the 2020-21 school year with all students receiving virtual instruction. 

As a result, families who have selected the hybrid or traditional instructional learning models will begin the school year in a virtual instructional model. In the virtual instructional model, students will participate in a rigorous instructional program that will include daily interaction with their teachers and peers. We intend to have every student return to an in-person learning environment as soon as public health conditions allow. 

 
For parents that selected to enroll their child in 21st Century Learning Institute (independent study program) for the school year, this means your child is NOT enrolled in their current boundary school. As part of the program, when the State deems it safe for students to return to the classroom, and you as a parent decide you would like your child to return to a traditional learning model, you will be able to make the choice at the end of the grading period. However, please note, due to the fluidity of the situation, space may be limited at the school site you would wish to enroll your child in. For frequently asked questions regarding 21st Century Learning Institute, click HERE.

 

You may be aware of information regarding a waiver provision that would allow elementary schools to return to in-classroom instruction in the fall. Please note, the waiver only applies to K-8 school districts. Beaumont USD is a TK-12 school district. 

 

We understand many of our families may have questions in light of this update. You will be receiving additional information from your child’s school site in the upcoming days. Please be assured that we are working diligently to balance the learning needs of students, the impact the virus is having on families, and the health and safety of all in our school community. We remain committed to providing the high quality of education our students deserve. 

We will continue to provide updates to our parents as we receive new information from our state and local health agencies. Thank you for your continued patience, support, and understanding as we move forward with the 2020-21 school year. 

 

Respectfully, 

 

Terrence Davis
