Superintendent of Schools
Happy May 1, 2020. We hope you and your family are well. We appreciate your continued support of our distance learning program.
You likely heard Governor Gavin Newsom share that reopening schools is a priority. This is great to hear and provides some hope. Of course, we are awaiting the details. Once we receive the specific timeline, as well as “what” reopening entails, our newly assembled RBUSD Reopening Classrooms and Child Development Center (CDC) Think Tank will work hard to determine “how” to do this within our learning community. This Think Tank is comprised of key administrators, labor partners, PTA, RBEF, RBPD, Beach Cities Health District, and two RBUSD Board of Education members. The Think Tank will consider and evaluate:
- student and staff health and well-being
- educational program continuity
- partial, hybrid, or phased opening
- fiscal, budgetary, and structural constraints
- neighboring district trends
- LA County Office of Education (in collaboration with LA County Department of Public Health) and California Department of Education recommendations
We are meeting via WebEx weekly and ensure our readiness when we receive the official notice. The safety of our students and staff will be paramount in this planning process. Please stay tuned for more information regarding the reopening of schools and CDC.
Thank you for your tireless efforts with (y)our students. Of course, thank you to our teachers and principals who continue to improve our distance learning program each week. Also, thank you to our school counselors and physical education teachers for meeting the social-emotional and physical well-being of our students at this time.
