Distance Learning Mandated by State

On July 17th, Governor Newsom announced the California Department of Public Health has released updated Guidance for Schools and School-Based Programs and he also set the metrics that all schools (public and private) and county public health officials must use to determine whether to reopen schools to in-person instruction. The specific metrics schools must meet to open to in-person instruction includes: Schools and school districts can reopen only when their county has been off of the monitoring list for 14 days. Therefore, at this time, because Monterey County is on the California County Monitoring List, all Monterey County schools must resume the 2020-2021 school year in Distance Learning as they are unable to open to in-person instruction.
