Six in 10 families in the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District do not endorse a move for elementary students to a blended school program. That's according to the recently reported findings of the district's essential engagement survey. Another six in 10 LVJUSD families, even though the district switched to a hybrid model, said they would stay in distance learning. Just 16 percent of families said the earliest date for elementary students to return is December, while the rest opted for January 2021.

 

Alameda County, however, does not officially offer elementary school exemptions. The county is presently in the four-tiered, color-coded COVID-19 risk structure of the state's most stringent purple tier.

 

Focus on Improving Distance Learning

With the virus in its winter surge, they understand their mode of instruction is distance learning. As demonstrated by their students, staff, and parents, they are in the process of making adjustments to maximize instructional time with teachers and to make more improvements.

 

In the middle and high school thoughtexchange, which suggested the following top areas to fix and change, 6,162 students, teachers, and parents participated:

  • Schedule - Wednesdays and help time could be better coordinated and/or used, and synchronous class time should be increased (direct time in online class with teacher)

  • Social networking - There may be expanded opportunities for students to communicate with each other, including online.

  • Technology & Schoology - Learning interrupts unreliable internet, and Schoology should be used more regularly

  • Workload - Excessive homework and workload were reported by many students

In this interactive study, comprehensive results of the thought exchange are available: Results of Thoughtexchange for Middle & High School Distance Learning. (You can read the highest rated thoughts when you click "View" in the "Themes" section and see if the thought was shared by a student, staff member, or parent/guardian.)

 

In addition to offering distance learning, their schools assessed student participation to ensure that all of their learners were involved. To the highest degree possible of distance learning. If students were not engaged, students and families were called to make sure the students were engaged. Students had all the requisite resources to continue making progress. There were tiered levels of outreach where home visits were included when required. Parents were also provided with tools to build routines, processes, and frameworks for the home learning environment including their counselors and nurses, as well as community-wide mental health services, they provided social and emotional support.

 

They are heartened by reports of the vaccine having a positive effect on the population in the immediate future, even with all the grim details about the winter surge. As they manage these next few weeks, they wish you all the best.
