** 
DJUSD will begin the 2020-21 school year in a 100% distance learning model, with students assigned to virtual classrooms at the school they regularly attend. **


This new website has been created and will be updated regularly to ensure that you remain informed and engaged as we progress through the summer months and look toward restarting school in the fall of 2020. Learn about considerations, progress and plans for keeping students and staff safe in the coming school year. 


Decisions related to the 2020-21 school year will be based on three considerations: 1) health and safety, 2) family accessibility and 3) and quality academic instruction and social emotional learning.


Highlights from this week: August 3 

  • Take our Distance Learning Childcare survey - available through August 5. 
  • Upcoming Board of Education Meeting,  scheduled August 6. The meeting will be broadcast through Davis Media Access / Channel 17 as well as through the web at www.djusd.tv.

Over the summer, DJUSD has engaged 200 staff members to participate across seven
Action Teams. Of those, eighty four staff members make up the in the reconfiguration team that is working to define the possible structures and considerations for school opening scenarios. The other six action teams are shaping the important details and recommendations that will be key for reopening schools on August 26, 2020. 

As described in our new DJUSD Restart Survey, the options listed below are possible considerations for the 2020-21 school year. 


Virtual Online Learning Option
Virtual Online Learning Option

This semester-long, online virtual learning program will be administered through the Davis School of Independent Study (DSIS). A portion of the day will include live instruction with a teacher supplemented with online curriculum. This option, available for TK-12 grade students, relies on conditions at home where parents can assist students with education, but will enable students to continue their education in DJUSD and transfer back to a full, in-person school model in subsequent semesters if desired. It is our intention to have students transfer back to their home school if possible. In a Virtual Online Learning model, students will be exposed to no other students (outside of your home) during the school day.
Full, In-Person Opening Option
Full, In-Person Opening Option 

A full, in-person reopening includes in-person academic instruction five days a week with additional health/safety measures in place. Physical distancing of approximately 2-3 feet between individuals will be enforced; students and staff will be required to wear face coverings during most of the school day, and rooms will be disinfected at least daily. In a full, in-person model, classroom cohort sizes will range from 22-30 students. Due to the nature of the secondary school schedules (7-period day), your student may have several classes in one day. Students will be exposed to more students than in other models.
Hybrid Opening Option
Hybrid Opening Option

A hybrid opening includes in-person (on-campus) instruction at least two days per week and students will learn independently from home on days when not on campus. Physical distancing of approximately 2-3 feet between individuals will be enforced; students and staff will be required to wear face coverings during most of the school day, and rooms will be disinfected at least daily. In a hybrid model, students will be contained in classrooms of approximately 12-15 students at the elementary level. Secondary students will be grouped in cohorts of up to three classrooms of approximately 15-18 students at the secondary level. Due to the nature of the secondary school schedules (7-period day), your student may have several classes in one day. Students will be exposed to more students than Virtual Online Learning Option, but fewer than the Full, In-Person model.
