Dear Fullerton Community,
On behalf of the Fullerton School District staff, we thank you and your family for your support and appreciate your commitment to educating your child in the Fullerton School District. We look forward to continuing our partnership in the 2020-2021 school year.
School Year Start Under Current COVID-19 Mandates
In accordance with orders from the California Department of Public Health and the Governor’s recent mandates, the Fullerton School District will begin the school year on August 11, 2020 with a Distance Learning Model. The Fullerton School District will be offering an enhanced online FSD 360° Distance Learning Program that will incorporate the following:
School sites will follow traditional grading practices, report cards, and systems that reflect classroom assignments and assessments. In the coming week, please refer to the district website to learn more about how FSD plans to provide high quality online instruction through a personalized and robust Distance Learning instructional model.
Transition After Clearance from Local Health Agency
While we offer distance learning during the state mandated school closure, we are making safety enhancements to meet Covid-19 guidelines for when we reopen. Additionally, we are working with our local health department for guidance as we monitor the local Covid-19 numbers. In the meantime, we are asking you to start thinking about different school options that will be available when we reopen our schools.
When Orange County is removed from the Covid-19 California Watch List for 14 consecutive days and resultant clearance from the Orange County Healthcare Agency is received, FSD schools will transition to offer different learning models for students. After transitioning from Distance Learning to on-site instruction, the Fullerton School District will offer three different learning models based on state guidelines under Stage 2 of the CA Roadmap (https://covid19.ca.gov/roadmap/.) Parents will be asked to choose one option that best meets the needs of their child and family.
Option 1: Five-day at School Learning Model
Option 2: Hybrid Learning Model
Option 3: Independent Study (100% Virtual Instruction)
Option 4: MyFSD Academy/ Homeschool
All learning models incorporate full English Language Arts (ELA) and math instructional standards, with support to our English Learners through integrated English Language Development (ELD), along with integrated social science and science. Changes to state and local guidelines may result in changes to learning model options.
In anticipation of the clearance from the local health agency and in preparation for reopening of schools, parents will be asked to choose a model to pre-enroll their students. An email will be sent to the primary parent’s email address in the student’s PowerSchool account. You will be choosing your option through the Annual Information Review (AIR) process. That information will be coming to your email soon. You will need to enroll each student in your household separately. Your choice is not permanent and the information will be used to staff our schools appropriately. Paper enrollment forms will be available at the school sites offices. Students who have not enrolled in one of the options or the MyFSD Academy Homeschool will be placed into the Hybrid model by default.
For any questions regarding Distance Learning, please contact Educational Services at 714-447-7709 or at email@example.com. We are committed to providing students with quality instruction through flexible learning models. We look forward to a healthy and safe start of the new school year!
