Hi! “College-bound & Covid-19” presentation will be at West Valley Library June 13th at 1pm
hosted by library, not at it - zoom mtg
for each type of recession, was the loss in ADA per year? and over what span of years were each recession again?
with all that said, what is the likelihood schools will open early in July per the Governors musings?
@Lori - the district committee on re-opening is looking at that as one of several models.
From a fiscal standpoint will it be less of a deficit if school is 100% distance learning in fall?
is a full year of distance learning being considered?
I can see how elementary and junior high school students might need to go back to school in July, but the high school students have been working just as hard as usual...just from home. I'm really hoping school doesn't open until August. The kids need a break.
and are there projections on cost saving for a full year of distance learning?
If we go online again will the expectations from teachers and students be the same?
What are examples of site positions that you are potential to be cut? Cannot figure out what that would be
If we do not have football in the fall will the play as in push back the season?
Is there any discussion about giving teachers technical support if school goes online in fall?
@Robyn - this is one of a few options that the CIF is considering: spreading Fall sports across the Winter and/or Spring seasons. No decisions yet.
places where social distancing cannot occur - school bathrooms - nothing we can do to change the usage of those facilities except not have as many students on campus.
If we are online again what about grades?
A lot of students are struggling with online distance learning.
were we given a waiver for instructional minutes for this year? cuz we are not teaching as much as we used to.
Connectivity can be a problem. Teachers can't control the internet environment that the students have at home.
Are there any parents and or students on this committee ?
What happens to AP where the curriculum and pacing is dictated by College Board?
It's not easy to teach in this manner.
Will any class offerings be dropped to focus on the most required classes?
There is one positive thing. Having to attend audio and video conferences will help prepare students for the real world. I work in high tech and have many meetings via audio and video.
If the students device is not working right, can we get it changed out?
@Sarah - Yes! Please call the hotline. 408-558-3080
What is the events for end of school for non seniors
can we get parent feedback on how their children are behaving under distance learning? we can plan instruction better if we know how the kids are reacting right now.
Wonder if we can do a survey to parents on how distance learning is going?
If a student wants to change a class they are signed up for due to the fact that we might be distance learning in the fall, is there still an opportunity to do so?
pass it up to the district too, for planning purposes.
What was the thinking behind the current schedule of classes…going from 3hrs of instruction per week to only 1 hour of instruction per week
I have two different students, and they both are reacting very different
It would be good to send out a survey to parents because the range is going to be wide from parents and who their teachers are
it went to students. parents would have a different perspective sometimes
Anyone that needs to leave the meeting is welcome to.
Cathie can we put out a survey from PTSA for Prospect?
the reaction in our home depends on the teachers approach to distance learning.
I think it would be better to survey the parents, instead of the students.
I think CUHSD posted an email for thought exchange for parents today
I feel my son is not trying as hard because it’s only pass/fail.
Michelle same with mine. D- is pass so he is having a hard time trying really hard.
My son’s friends are also not trying that hard because of the pass/fail…. We promote working as hard as they can till the end of the year
You can do it later in June as you start to determine what needs to be done in the fall
agreed, students might be happy with less instructional time. Asking parents might be more helpful
School is his job so we promote always working hard/
I heard another school offered refurbished students a choice of Pass/Fail vs grades.
school district offered students the choice
thanks Cathie! we appreciate you!
Lori, yes some district are
