HEARING ON LEARNING CONTINUITY AND ATTENDANCE PLAN

DATE: September 3, 2020

TIME: 7:00 PM

PLACE: Zoom

RECOMMENDATION

The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) is a key part of the overall budget package for K-12 that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the local educational agency (LEA) level for how student learning continuity will be addressed during the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in SB 98.

The Learning Continuity Plan is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students, and community members, while both streamlining engagement and condensing several pre-existing plans.

The Learning Continuity Plan adoption timeline of September 30, 2020, is intended to ensure the Learning Continuity Plan is completed at the beginning of the 2020–21 school year.

The template memorializes the planning process already underway for the 2020–21 school year and includes descriptions of the following: addressing gaps in learning; conducting meaningful stakeholder engagement; maintaining transparency; addressing the needs of unduplicated pupils, students with unique needs, and students experiencing homelessness; providing access to necessary devices and connectivity for distance learning; providing resources and supports to address student and staff mental health and social-emotional well-being; and continuing to provide school meals for students.
