Opening Up Schools Plan

The San Carlos School District Opening Up Schools Plan was approved at the June 18 School Board meeting to prepare for school in the fall. You may review it here. The Opening Up Schools Task Force began work on this plan May 27, 2020. We want to thank the 130 staff and parents who participated in the weekly discussions by providing input and feedback. Staff invested significant time to create this plan based on the San Mateo County Office of Education Pandemic Recovery Framework’s four pillars, stakeholder input, parent and staff surveys, and the ability to implement models based on our current staffing and the availability of space on our campuses, to allow for physical distancing. Staff used the building blocks of health and safety, social-emotional needs of students, and academics as the foundation of the plan.
