Reopening of Schools 2020-21 » Home


Reopening of Schools

On July 17, 2020, California Gavin Newsom, in partnership with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), announced strict guidelines to reopen schools in the fall of 2020. The Governor stated that to reopen schools for in-person teaching, counties must have 14 consecutive days off the CDPH's Monitoring List. Orange County has been identified as one of the counties that DOES NOT meet the criteria to open schools with in-person teaching. As it stands today, Orange County and many other counties across the state must begin the 2020-21 school year through online learning (August 17 for BOUSD).
With online learning in place for now, The Reopening of Schools Committee will guide and work diligently to provide all BOUSD staff with training to enhancing curriculum in comparison to the emergency distance learning that we were required to implement unexpectedly in spring.
