Distance Learning Support Program Safety Plan

With Chula Vista Elementary School 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 has 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.

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.

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.  

As each school facility is unique, principals and YMCA site coordinators will work together within DLSP Safety Plan guidelines to create procedures for their specific sites.  District staff and YMCA leadership will provide support to sites as needed. 

The DLSP Safety Plan will be updated as necessary when new information is received from the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency and California Department of Public Health.
