SEPTEMBER 22, 2020

    Dear CVUSD Parents and Guardians of High School Students:

    While we are already into a month of distance learning, we remain optimistic that we will be able to offer in-person instruction in the near future. The Governor has made changes to the County’s reopening plans which are now based on a four-tiered color system: Tier 1-purple (widespread risk), Tier 2-red (substantial), Tier 3-orange (moderate) or Tier 4-yellow (minimal). San Bernardino County is in Tier 1-purple. CVUSD will closely monitor the County data to prepare for the opening of in-person learning.

    For schools to be eligible to provide district wide in-person instruction, the County must be in Tier 2-red for minimally two weeks.

    The first opportunity for high school students attending Ayala, Chino, Chino Hills and Don Lugo High School to change their learning model (In-person or Distance Learning) will be at the end of semester 1 and at the end of the 2 nd quarter at Buena Vista High School. Learning model changes for all high school students will take effect on January 6, 2021. Change requests shall only be accommodated if there is room in the classrooms and staff availability.

    The application to request a change in the learning model for HIGH SCHOOL students will be available from September 22- October 2 at 4:00 p.m. on the District and School websites. You should not complete an application if you want your student to remain in their current learning model. All applications will be reviewed and placed into random order for consideration at your school site. If your application to switch learning models is approved, you will be notified by your school site no later than December 11, 2020. An AERIES communication will be sent to all our families with information on when they can access new teacher and schedule information in AERIES parent portal.

    Important Reminders for Applicants Wishing to Request Learning Model Change:

    • At any time, in-person instruction may include participation in a blended model that could change to a traditional setting with all students attending every day
    • If a change request is not made, students shall remain in their current learning model
    • Teacher(s) and schedules will change
    • Once submitted, all applications are final and cannot be withdrawn
    • Submitting an application does not guarantee the switching to a different learning model
    • Special education case carriers may change
    • Only submit one application per student

    Thank you for your partnership in creating a successful educational experience for our students!
