DUSD Superintendent Ana Samaniego announced at the May 12 meeting that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DUSD will not be providing summer school in June.
“However, we plan on having a jump start program right before the beginning of the school year in July,” she said. “All that is still in the works. We feel bringing some of the kids back right before school starts will allow us to help some of the kids that have been struggling to get some schooling done before the beginning of the school year.”
Samaniego added that state superintendent Kathy Hoffman has created a task force for reopening schools around the state.
“They will be providing us guidelines in the next two weeks as to how they see our schools reopening,” she said. “As soon as I hear what those guidelines are we will work with our administrators to make a plan according to those guidelines. Right now we have not received any information. As soon as we hear something we will communicate to the board and to our community what the reopening of our schools in August will look like.”
