  • Proposed Instructional Model

    July 9, 2020

    Dear Santa Paula Unified Families,


    We hope this letter finds you and your family safe and healthy.  As we continue to work through the necessary changes to deliver instruction to students, due to COVID-19, district staff is planning to present a Reopening of Schools Plan to the Board of Trustees later this month for consideration to approve. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the proposed learning models which will be available to students this fall.  We are requesting parents to select the model that best meets the needs of their child. The models are as follows: 1) hybrid learning (part-time online & part-time in-person attendance weekly); 2) distance learning (full-time online learning with teachers); and 3) independent study (alternative program with weekly check-in).


    We are requesting a semester-long commitment for students in grades 6-12 and a trimester-long commitment for students in grades TK-5 from each family regarding the learning model you will be selecting for your child. This will allow our school staffs to create class schedules for all students. Please complete the following survey, Instructional Program Options for Fall 2020, by the deadline on Wednesday, July 15, 2020.  For parents who cannot access this form by electronic means, please call 805-933-8988 and a staff member will assist you with completing the form.  It is important that we receive survey responses for every student planning to attend any of our schools in the fall. This information is necessary in order to complete master schedules and class rosters before the start of the school year.  If a survey is not completed by the deadline listed above, your student will be placed into the Hybrid Learning Model.  


    Please note that regardless of the learning model chosen, students will be required to engage with each of their teachers and submit all of their work electronically. Unlike last Spring (March through June 2020), student performance on assignments and assessments may both positively or negatively impact a student’s grades/progress marks. All students in grades 6-12 will be assigned a letter grade that corresponds with the teacher and course expectations outlined in the course syllabus.


    The proposed bell schedules can be found on the SPUSD website.  It should be noted that all students will be expected to do additional work at home, aside from the “live” instruction during the designated periods and may be required to attend online teacher office hours.  The district will send an additional survey to all families to ensure all students have access to a dedicated laptop and have internet access prior to the beginning of the school year.

    A quick and succinct summary of the three proposed learning models are as follows:


    • Hybrid Learning is where students will be divided into two cohorts (groups) in order to maintain 6 foot physical distancing and will include both in-person and online learning. Students will be expected to complete independent online work during the days they are not present on campus. Teachers will also provide daily office hours for students.  Should circumstances require, the District reserves the right to change the Hybrid Learning Model to the Full-Time Distance Learning Model based on guidance from the Ventura County Office of Education and Ventura County Public Health Department.


    • Full-Time Online Distance Learning is where students will remain at home and have full-time access to their subject courses through online curriculum. These students will receive daily live interaction with their subject course teachers.


    • Independent Study is where students and their families seek an alternative to traditional classroom instruction that is consistent with our school district’s course of study. Students work independently utilizing online curriculum and are assigned to a teacher who also serves as their mentor, academic coach, and guide. Students typically meet with their teacher for one hour each week. (BP/AR 6148)

    In closing, your assistance and support will allow us to be prepared to start the school year keeping the safety of students and staff as a priority. Additional information regarding registration for new and returning students will be provided soon. If you have any questions regarding registration or proposed models for next school year, please contact our District Office at 933-8988.

    Thank you, in advance, for your assistance.

    Dr. Ed Cora
