CUSD Update, Board Meeting on June 18 at 4pm


We are committed to equity for all students. On Thursday evening, the Governing Board will review and discuss BP 0410: Nondiscrimination in District Programs and Activities with an acknowledgment that CUSD must seek deeper understanding in order to initiate meaningful and systemic change.

We must equip ourselves with the sustained resources and training to create school communities and experiences which celebrate diversity and foster inclusivity. We will work tirelessly this summer to ensure systems are designed and policies are placed in order to move our district forward in 2020-21.

The Fall Task Force Committee, comprised of staff across CUSD, has convened and is actively reviewing and contemplating State and Local guidelines regarding our Reopening Plan. Our central focus is designing viable options which prioritize the health, safety, and success of our staff and students. Earlier this afternoon, the San Diego County Office of Education released reopening guidance for San Diego County. We will survey our parents when we release our draft ‘Returning to School’ plan and placement options.

Happy Father’s Day!
