Identifying Student Groups and School Sites

Identifying Student Groups and School Sites

Our goal is to get students back to in-person learning at their "home schools," recognizing a need to adhere to safety, staffing and facility considerations. We have drafted a plan to gradually return students in priority groups to in-person instruction at school sites in waves, based on a ‘home school strategy’ with target dates.

By the completion of Phase 2A, the in-person learning option will be available to all students in named priority groups.

First Student Groups to Return

For Phase 2A, small groups are the youngest students (grades PK–2) and students with disabilities in Moderate/Severe SDCs

  • PK/Early Ed = 937 students
  • Elementary SDC Mod/Severe = 250 students 
  • TK-2nd = 12,272 students
  • County= 105 students
  • Secondary SDC Mod/Severe = 437 students 

Gradual Return to In Person Learning for 2B

  • Homeless Youth = 2,363 students 
  • Foster Youth = 259 students 
  • Public Housing = 2,231 students 
  • Limited Engagement Online = about 815 students 

Gradual Return to In Person Learning for Grades 3-5

  • 3rd grade = 4188 students
  • 4th grade = 4295 students
  • 5th grade = 4010 students

By the end of Wave 3, all elementary school sites will be opened and select middle and high school sites would be open to serve students in mod/severe. 

SFUSD is collaborating and planning with site leaders

  • Hybrid Learning Partnership Protocol with Principals Topics: Use of Space, Mapping In-Person Learning Day, Curriculum & Instructional Resources, Communication Plan
    • Review new safety protocols and identify classroom and communal spaces to support instructional model with 14:1 ratio. 
    • Plan new occupancies and flow of traffic to support safety guidelines and identified new routines necessary for students and staff. 
    • Identify outdoor spaces for each cohort and instructional strategies to support learning outside, ensuring safety protocols and student ratios are maintained throughout the day.
