Phase 2 - Hybrid Model
Given the shifting nature of the impact of COVID-19, careful consideration must be paid to the re-opening of school campuses for in-person learning. SFUSD will continue to monitor guidance from local health officials who regularly assess public health data to determine when it will be safe to begin transitioning into Phase 2 - Hybrid Model. Because each school and district office has variation in a number of operational components including staffing, facility size, workplace set-up and student enrollment, there are many factors that we will need to consider and protocols that will need to be in place in order to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, staff and families.
The CDPH directive from July 17 states that “schools and school districts may reopen for in-person instruction at any time if they are located in a local health jurisdiction (LHJ) that has not been on the county monitoring list within the prior 14 days. If the LHJ has been on the monitoring list within the last 14 days, the school must conduct distance learning only, until their LHJ has been off the monitoring list for at least 14 days.” The county of San Francisco is currently on the State’s monitoring list.
Plans for Phase 2 are currently in development and may continue to change depending on local public health conditions and updates in State and Local guidelines. We will work closely with our labor partners, using the guiding values developed by the Personnel Working Group to ensure that a return to school sites prioritizes staff safety and wellness while meeting the needs of our students to the greatest extent possible.
