In December 2019, an outbreak of respiratory illness due to a novel coronavirus (a disease now known as COVID-19) was identified and has impacted more than 75 countries including the United States. As of March 4, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a State of Emergency to enable state and local agencies to more effectively respond to the threat of spread of COVID-19. Resolution No. 20/21-2 would allow the Superintendent and/or his designee to take any and all actions necessary to ensure the health and safety of students and staff and to ensure public education continues to be provided to the students.
Approve Resolution No. 20/21-2 declaring emergency conditions exist at Hart District schools and offices and authorizing the superintendent and/or designee to take any and all actions necessary to ensure the continuation of public education, and health and safety of the students and staff.
The Board will review specific details of the Fall 2020 Action Plan approved on July 15, 2020. The Action Plan was approved prior to Governor Newsom’s recent announcement regarding guidelines for school reopening.
At the July 15, 2020, Governing Board meeting, the Board approved a Fall 2020 Action Plan with the following details: 1) Classes will begin on August 11 in an online format; 2) Online instruction will continue for approximately five weeks (through the first progress reporting period – September 11); 3) Staff will report to work as assigned for the start of the school year; and, 4) Training will commence tomorrow to enhance online instruction, to prepare for the next phase of Blended Learning, and to implement safety procedures as outlined in the Reopening Protocols for K-12 Schools, with the overriding goal to fully reopen. The Board’s action came prior to Governor Newsom’s announcement regarding guidelines for school reopening. The Board will review these details to determine if any revisions are necessary.
Make adjustments, if deemed necessary, to the Fall 2020 Action Plan.
