    School Reopening Update and Departing Student Request


    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    RUSD is such an active and engaged community where there is such a collective priority placed on the growth and education of our children. We had a record number of people attend the Board meeting on Monday which exceeded 250 people! If you were not able to access the Board Meeting, we have posted the meeting recording link to the main RUSD webpage. We are upgrading our meeting platform to increase the attendance capacity for our next Special Board Meeting that is scheduled for August 6, 2020 at 4:00 PM.  
    Del Mar Math 7C:
    You may have heard at the meeting that in initial planning we considered modifying how Math 7C is scheduled for next year. The Del Mar administration and staff share the goal of maintaining our rigorous and supportive math program established for all students over the past few years. Please note, we plan to continue to offer our Math 7C curriculum to students who have demonstrated readiness for this course during the 2020-21 school year. Del Mar math faculty and administration are meeting this week to determine how they can design appropriate pathways for our students to inform our configuration of stable student cohorts. 
    Class Placements:
    With regard to class placement (stable student cohort), school teams comprised of teachers, administrators, and support staff work in collaboration to create balanced classes. Careful attention is given to class size, gender ratio, individual student learning needs and styles, academic proficiency, social emotional needs and leadership skills. The overarching goal is to create the best possible learning environment for all students. Given the complexity of this process and the need to carefully consider the aforementioned factors, we are not able to accommodate parent requests to place students together based on enrollment in outside learning pods, summer camps or other social groups.
    We are looking forward to the start of the 2020-2021 school year.  
    Request for Departing Student Information:
    As we prepare staffing, scheduling and curriculum needs for an upcoming school year it is important that we have a projected enrollment count by grade which is as accurate as possible. Due to COVID-19, this year these enrollment numbers are especially important as cohort size will impact how we best use our facilities to create the safest environment possible while still providing the most robust educational experience.
    If your children are NOT returning to RUSD during the 2020-2021 school year, please take a minute to complete this brief survey which will allow us to make sure they are not included in the RUSD enrollment numbers for the upcoming year. We are aware that some of you have already conveyed this information directly to schools or to the District Office, but I would appreciate you taking a moment to answer these brief questions again to make sure that we have your information.
    Thank you for your cooperation in this matter and I wish the best in health and happiness to you and your children.
    Warm regards,
    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
    Reed Union School District
