I think it is very unfair to lump Pleasanton and its covid case rate with adjoining communities, whose rates are much higher, to determine if schools can reopen..All the data, all the advice, including Dr. Fauci's, say get the kids back to class, and away from zoom classes, following their safety guidelines, of course. The data for Pleasanton and the research shows that it is SAFE to open our schools. The private schools in this area, which remained open without problems for the past several months, sort of proves that point, don't you think?

To clarify, the district plan that is being presented to the board tonight clearly states that they are changing direction and no longer exploring options for getting middle school and high school back this year. It states that for grades 6-12 (slide 27): "Secondary students continue in remote learning for the rest of the 2020-2021 school year". Now that we are aligning with state versus county guidelines we should be looking at how other CA schools are handling re-opening and not just throwing in the towel. Other districts have done it already and those who havent yet are continuing to plan for it and we should to. All children should have the option of in-person learning just as those who need to stay home are being accommodated. You can view the agenda and proposed plan PowerPoint here : Web Link

Failed to file for waiver

Failed to open in Oct

Failing to educate students effectively remotely (ref recent grade policy change)

.....and now failing to try to open.

Unacceptable. Our students and teachers deserve better board and union leadership.

Also agree with other posts that the school administration has failed our students.

Surveys designed to justify decisions already made, telling teachers they will not open until perfectly safe, making worse case assumption about how many secondary school student/families will even want to return to justify giving up on 20/21 school year, bringing up student vaccination as a threshold to confuse and scare parents, using the most stringent interpretation of county and state guidelines to open schools - but using EBAL to determine when sports can restart (because EBAL employs so many epidemiologists he said sarcastically)

How do we recall the PUSD admin the way others want to recall Newsom
