2020-21 School Year to Begin with Distance Learning
Posted 7/14/20

Dear MDUSD Community, 

     At its July 13th Board Meeting, the Governing Board of Education signaled unanimous support for returning to school on August 13th with primarily distance learning. The Governing Board noted health and safety as priorities that cannot be compromised, given most recent coronavirus pandemic information. 

     With this direction, newly appointed Superintendent Dr. Adam Clark and the existing structure of Task Forces will bring reopening plans into higher resolution. This marks a transition into the, "Adjustments and Final Plan," stage in the Roadmap to Reopen.

     A new Revised Reopening Plan will be developed and presented to the Board of Education for consideration in the coming weeks. The Revised Reopening Plan will show the 2020-21 school year beginning with distance learning, and will allow for selective phasing into classroom environments only when and where the highest standards of health and safety can be achieved. 

     On the Roadmap to Reopen webpage, find out how you can participate in our planning process, or review our timeline for plan development. 

     We are sincerely appreciative of the high level of public participation in our surveys and in our public meetings. You have been excellent communicators of your ideas and perspectives, which is fundamental for healthy collaboration. We are also thankful to the Board of Education for providing direction that is essential to our planning efforts. We look forward to communicating to  you any and all reopening plan developments going forward as soon as possible. 

With respect,

​Austin Breidenthal
