In accordance to AB 1505, PVSD conducted a thorough analysis of the UPCS charter renewal petition. Based on the finding, the District’s recommendation is that UPCS’s renewal petition be approved.
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).
