 DJUSD has been working to develop an equitable, accessible, and innovative solution to serve all of our students’ academic growth and social-emotional needs through a Distance Learning model.

To arrive there, DJUSD will be rolling out these changes in a two-phased approach:

Phase One Begins Today- Learning from Home Resources

To support the first phase of voluntary home instruction, we have launched DJUSD Learning@Home website for students and families with links to educational websites and our core curriculum that can be accessed voluntarily. These resources are not designed to replace or replicate classroom instruction; they were compiled to build a habit for learning at home, keep students engaged and curious in learning, and provide DJUSD with time to design a thoughtful Distance Learning plan for all District teachers and students, which will launch on April 13, 2020.

Phase Two- Distance Learning Plan

After Spring Break, DJUSD will transition to a Distance Learning model of instruction. Distance Learning is generally defined as teaching and learning between an instructor and student who are located in different places and can include delivery through online, telephone, video conferencing, or distributed hard copy materials. Stay tuned for more information from our school district, your principal and your teachers and view a Distance Learning Preview at our COVID-19 website.

Supporting Students and Families with Technology

As we move toward more online resources, we are being mindful of student needs for technology and internet access. If you have a computer that your child can use at home, please provide that access. Our Instructional Technology team has a plan in place to provide Chromebooks and Internet Access to students who lack these resources.

Details will be shared through flyers at meal distribution locations, phone calls and email messaging, Peachjar, and school and district social media. For more information, please visit our Chromebooks and Internet Access website or call 530-757-5300 x117 with your questions.
