Hi! “College-bound & Covid-19” presentation will be at West Valley Library June 13th at 1pm
Amy Bencomo
01:13:42
hosted by library, not at it - zoom mtg
mcgowan
01:21:06
for each type of recession, was the loss in ADA per year? and over what span of years were each recession again?
Lori Kahn
01:24:12
with all that said, what is the likelihood schools will open early in July per the Governors musings?
Paul Pinza
01:26:17
@Lori - the district committee on re-opening is looking at that as one of several models.
sangeeta
01:28:28
From a fiscal standpoint will it be less of a deficit if school is 100% distance learning in fall?
mcgowan
01:28:34
is a full year of distance learning being considered?
Lori Thomas
01:29:00
I can see how elementary and junior high school students might need to go back to school in July, but the high school students have been working just as hard as usual...just from home. I'm really hoping school doesn't open until August. The kids need a break.
mcgowan
01:29:10
and are there projections on cost saving for a full year of distance learning?
Robyn Giffin
01:29:21
If we go online again will the expectations from teachers and students be the same?
bagadeimac2011
01:30:29
What are examples of site positions that you are potential to be cut? Cannot figure out what that would be
Robyn Giffin
01:31:30
If we do not have football in the fall will the play as in push back the season?
sangeeta
01:32:23
Is there any discussion about giving teachers technical support if school goes online in fall?
Paul Pinza
01:32:27
@Robyn - this is one of a few options that the CIF is considering: spreading Fall sports across the Winter and/or Spring seasons. No decisions yet.
Robyn Giffin
01:32:45
Thanks Paul!
mcgowan
01:34:11
places where social distancing cannot occur - school bathrooms - nothing we can do to change the usage of those facilities except not have as many students on campus.
Robyn Giffin
01:35:12
If we are online again what about grades?
Pamala Mita
01:35:48
A lot of students are struggling with online distance learning.
mcgowan
01:36:17
were we given a waiver for instructional minutes for this year? cuz we are not teaching as much as we used to.
Donna Yuen
01:36:58
Connectivity can be a problem. Teachers can't control the internet environment that the students have at home.
Robyn Giffin
01:39:14
Are there any parents and or students on this committee ?
sangeeta
01:42:54
What happens to AP where the curriculum and pacing is dictated by College Board?
mcgowan
01:43:11
It's not easy to teach in this manner.
Dan Kahn
01:44:49
Will any class offerings be dropped to focus on the most required classes?
Lori Thomas
01:45:43
There is one positive thing. Having to attend audio and video conferences will help prepare students for the real world. I work in high tech and have many meetings via audio and video.
Sarah Pollace
01:47:26
If the students device is not working right, can we get it changed out?
Paul Pinza
01:47:58
@Sarah - Yes! Please call the hotline. 408-558-3080
Robyn Giffin
01:48:52
What is the events for end of school for non seniors
mcgowan
01:49:34
can we get parent feedback on how their children are behaving under distance learning? we can plan instruction better if we know how the kids are reacting right now.
Robyn Giffin
01:50:51
Wonder if we can do a survey to parents on how distance learning is going?
Robyn Giffin
01:51:50
yearbooks?
Claudine Asrat
01:51:52
If a student wants to change a class they are signed up for due to the fact that we might be distance learning in the fall, is there still an opportunity to do so?
mcgowan
01:53:07
pass it up to the district too, for planning purposes.
sangeeta
01:53:07
What was the thinking behind the current schedule of classes…going from 3hrs of instruction per week to only 1 hour of instruction per week
Pamala Mita
01:53:08
I have two different students, and they both are reacting very different
bagadeimac2011
01:53:34
It would be good to send out a survey to parents because the range is going to be wide from parents and who their teachers are
Heather
01:54:07
it went to students. parents would have a different perspective sometimes
Cathie Watson-Short
01:54:16
Anyone that needs to leave the meeting is welcome to.
Robyn Giffin
01:54:20
Cathie can we put out a survey from PTSA for Prospect?
Lori Kahn
01:54:40
the reaction in our home depends on the teachers approach to distance learning.
Pamala Mita
01:54:41
I think it would be better to survey the parents, instead of the students.
Sheila Juthani
01:55:19
I think CUHSD posted an email for thought exchange for parents today
Michelle D
01:55:19
I feel my son is not trying as hard because it’s only pass/fail.
Robyn Giffin
01:56:01
Michelle same with mine. D- is pass so he is having a hard time trying really hard.
Sarah Pollace
01:56:16
My son’s friends are also not trying that hard because of the pass/fail…. We promote working as hard as they can till the end of the year
bagadeimac2011
01:56:22
You can do it later in June as you start to determine what needs to be done in the fall
Sheila Juthani
01:56:47
agreed, students might be happy with less instructional time. Asking parents might be more helpful
Robyn Giffin
01:57:09
School is his job so we promote always working hard/
Lori Kahn
01:58:16
I heard another school offered refurbished students a choice of Pass/Fail vs grades.
Lori Kahn
01:58:49
school district offered students the choice
Lisa Palumbo
01:59:02
thanks Cathie! we appreciate you!
Sheila Juthani
01:59:07
Lori, yes some district are
