With our District starting the 2020-21 school year utilizing the distance learning instructional model, many families expressed childcare concerns and needs. After an extensive exploration of viable options, the District formed a partnership with the YMCA of San Diego County and South Bay Family YMCA (collectively “YMCA”) to provide the Distance Learning Support Program (DLSP). This full-day program will assist a limited number of our neediest families from each school site, including the children of Essential Workers.

While District teachers provide remote instruction to students on a daily basis, the YMCA will provide safe structures and engaging environments to support both synchronous and asynchronous learning.

STRETCH at Lauderbach"We had a number of partners come together to make this program possible for students and families who otherwise have limited care options," said Sherry Colgan Stone, Ed.D., the District's Emergency Preparedness & Security Manager. "Safety is our highest priority. We've put an array of measures into place to ensure we are providing engaging and safe environments to support learning. Although demand for the program continues to grow, we must proceed cautiously and carefully."

Due to the unique structure of DLSP, both the District and the YMCA determined it is necessary to establish a joint safety plan that addresses the needs of both agencies. While YMCA will be the lead agency for most safety issues, the District will provide support through site facilities, resources, and personnel. Utilizing state and local industry guidance for childcare, YMCA staff and District staff members outlined the DLSP Safety Plan.
