As we prepare for the phased in reopening starting on October 26, 2020, we are aware that there are families who had a change in their circumstances affecting the learning environment they chose in August. We are surveying families so they can indicate any change in circumstance. Please note: we want to be clear that filling out the survey does not guarantee a change in placement.

The PVSD School Board approved our Safe Reopening and Recovery Plan for fall 2020 at the special board meeting held on July 30, 2020.
The purpose of the Local Plan is to: (1) Outline the special education policies/procedures and services that are offered throughout the SELPA. (2) To assure access to special education and related services for all individuals with exceptional needs residing within the geographic areas served by the plan and (3) To assure compliance with all Federal and State codes and statutes.
The Digital Learning Academy is PVSD’s program for families who desire to remain in a distance learning format for the 20-21 school year. The program will mirror the instructional content being offered in the traditional modified model and will be instructed by PVSD teachers.
All students enrolled in the PVSD Digital Learning Academy will be provided a Chromebook for the academic year. Clever accounts will be utilized for a single-sign on to various application.
Students will receive daily synchronous (live, on Zoom or Google Meet) instruction from their classroom teachers. Instruction will be based on the priority standards using the same Board-adopted materials as in the modified traditional model. Students will earn grades in the Digital Learning Academy.
In grades TK-5, teachers will set up a daily schedule that has consistent times for synchronous instruction. Synchronous learning will be followed by offline independent work that reinforces instruction.
In grades 6-8, students will follow a period schedule. Students will have direct, synchronous instruction followed by independent work for each class period. Teachers will be available for office hours while students are completing independent work.
For students who receive special education services, the services in the student's IEP with the necessary accommodations will be implemented to ensure that the IEP can be provided to the maximum extent possible, in a digital environment.
English learners will be provided with integrated and designated English Language Development (ELD).
