Public hearing on Sept. 3: Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan

LCP plan graphic

On June 29, 2020, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 98 (SB 98) into law. SB 98 mandates the creation of a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP) in lieu of the 2020-21 Local Control Accountability Plan.

MVWSD is in the process of creating this LCP, needed due to COVID-19, to memorialize the planning process already underway for the 2020–21 school year in areas such as instruction, parent engagement, nutrition, and more.

Please read the plan and supporting materials at mvwsd.org/lcp.

An LCP public hearing will be held during the regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Trustees on September 3, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. For information about how to comment at the meeting, please see the Board meeting agenda. Members of the public are encouraged to attend and offer comments and specific recommendations regarding the specific actions and expenditures proposed to be included in the LCP. 

Families unable to participate in the public hearing due to connectivity issues may provide feedback to their school’s School and Community Engagement Facilitator who will share the information with the District representative, and written responses will be provided. 

The Board of Trustees is scheduled to take action on the adoption of the proposed LCP at its regular meeting on September 17, 2020.

 

COVID clarification: Playgrounds and basketball hoops

play safe

MVWSD does not recommend the use of outdoor playgrounds. As is noticed by signs on our playgrounds now, the equipment is not regularly monitored or sanitized. 

Per the Public Health Dept of Santa Clara County,  if outdoor playgrounds are used: 

  • Adults and children who can safely wear face coverings must do so at the playground. 
  • Children should be guided in rigorous hand hygiene before and after playing on playground equipment. 
  • Adults must also maintain 6-foot social distancing from people from different households. (Source: SCCPH website)

BasketballAdditionally, MVWSD is in the process of removing basketball hoops from school playgrounds. Unfortunately, since this summer, large groups of people have been congregating in these areas without social distancing or masks. While we recognize the desire of people to have fun outside, continuing to allow this to occur is a safety hazard for our entire community. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Distance Learning platforms infographic

Here’s a handy cheat sheet that shows all the platforms our students and parents use for distance learning and what’s included in each. Maybe something to print for the refrigerator? Parents, thank you for your patience and flexibility during distance learning.

SCCOE: Webpage of local emergency resources

The Santa Clara County Office of Education created a handy webpage full of local resources for tracking wildfires, power outages, heat and air quality. https://www.sccoe.org/resources/emergencyadvisory
