At the February 23rd Board of Education (BOE) Meeting, the District presented a staff report to the Board members regarding the reopening of schools. We know many parents and staff members were not able to attend the meeting, so we are sharing the slides from the presentation here. Please be aware that the presentation lasted almost two hours and consisted of 38 slides (some of which are not completely self-explanatory), so it may be difficult to understand everything by just looking at the slides. CLICK ON THE HEADLINE to download a PDF of the entire slideshow. Please view slides #36-37 for the “next steps” for AUSD, and please try to attend the March 9th BOE meeting, where results of the parent/guardian survey will be presented and the Board will make a decision for the rest of the 2020-21 school year.
