2021-2022 School Year: Return to Full-Day In-Person Instruction
Dear iLEAD Agua Dulce families,
As we excitedly plan for the 2021-22 school year, we wanted to give you some important information. We will continue full-day, in-person, five days per week, as our regular instructional day prior to the COVID pandemic. Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is advising school leaders that the implementation of the Big 5 (masking, social distancing, regular hand washing, limiting social groups and staying home if ill/symptomatic) will be in place for August. Please remember that August is still three months away and things can still change. We are optimistic that these restrictions will only lessen, and we will be prepared to adapt as allowed.
In addition, the special criteria for schools that was allowed under SB98 this school year is ending as of June 30, 2021. This means that shortened school days, all virtual-only learning, and hybrid schedules will not be offered in the new school year. Schools must resume the learning program that mirrors the pre-COVID shutdown models on campus, five days per week, with regular instructional minutes. Although some schools are planning to offer an independent study program to families in lieu of returning to school full time in person, unfortunately, due to the education code, charter schools are capped at offering only 20% of their school population this option. As you may know, our school already offers an independent study program, Exploration, which already accounts for our 20% allowed. Our lottery was held in March for this program, and it is currently at full capacity with a wait list. Therefore, we do not have any available spaces to offer in iLEAD Agua Dulce’s independent study program at this time, but if you are interested in an independent study program, please contact us to be placed on our wait list.
We hope you are just as excited for the 2021-2022 school year as we are. If you would like any more information regarding other options within the iLEAD network, please email email@example.com for more information.
