PACE & Pivot Learning June 10, 2020
Read the Report

Districts across California have stepped up, shifting their practices to serve students even as shelter-in-place policies have shut down brick-and-mortar schools. Many districts have come up with innovative ways to ensure all students continue to receive the supports they need. The most successful have designed their crisis response around their most vulnerable students.

This COVID-19 Crisis Response series from Pivot Learning and Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) profiles districts across the state who have implemented policies and practices centered around equity to ensure that the needs of every student, especially the most vulnerable, are met during the pandemic. Read each report to review response strategies that have shown promising results to help you plan and refine your own strategies to better serve students.

This report explains how PVUSD created a crisis response that prioritized the needs of its large Spanish-, Mixteco bajo- and English-speaking communities while serving every student in the district. Key takeaways include practices the district created to increase family engagement and outreach and improve instructional access for English learners.

We also invite you to watch our on-demand webinar to hear how two districts, Pajaro Valley Unified and Mother Lode Union, initially addressed students’ immediate needs following school closures and how they are approaching strategic planning for the months ahead.

“ PVUSD’s communication with families has been a crucial
part of their COVID-19 response, since families now play
an even larger role in supporting learning at home. ”
