Spring 2020 Message from Superintendent
Dear CUHSD Community,
Now that we know that in-person classes will not be able to resume this semester, it is time for us to move beyond supplemental learning and shift towards helping students master course standards that have not yet been taught this academic year.
This plan focuses on how to implement distance learning to provide all students with equitable opportunities to successfully complete the Spring Semester of 2020. This includes helping students develop the skills they will need for next year, awarding credits for completed courses, and issuing diplomas. As we transition to more regular instruction in a remote setting, Pass/Nopass grades will be given and attendance will be taken.
Decades ago, the Campbell Union High School seal included the Latin phrase, “Nemo Solus Sapit,” which means, “No one is wise alone.” While we are asked to practice social distancing, we will do our best not leave students to learn in isolation. During the 1918-1920 flu pandemic, when they could not be together teachers and students had only paper and pencil to stay connected. To the extent possible, we hope to leverage the technology we have available to help students better connect to their teachers and schools.
I thank everyone for the patience they have demonstrated during this trying time and hope that we all understand more patience will be required of us as we move forward into a new frontier. This is emergency distance learning, and no one should expect that our program will mirror the online courses that colleges and universities have taken years to develop for use by adults. We haven’t trained for this, we haven’t prepared for this, but we will do our best for students.
Robert Bravo, Ed.D.,
