LEARNING CONTINUITY AND ATTENDANCE PLAN 2020-21
The Learning Continuity Plan is a key part of the overall budget package for K–12 that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the LEA level for how student learning continuity will be addressed in light of the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in SB 98 and can be found in EC Section 43509.
The Santa Paula Unified School District recognizes the harmful effects of bullying on student well-being,student learning, and school attendance and desires to provide a safe school environment that protects students from physical and emotional harm.
