As schools prepare to safely instruction in the fall, Oceanside may consider an option to return to full-time traditional instruction. The board will consider that option, along with digital and hybrid instruction models, at its meeting this month.
And as of Wednesday, more than people had ed a petition on Change. Districts throughout San Diego County are finalizing back-to-school plans, and are considering options that range from a continuation of remote learning to full-time on-campus instruction with physical distancing and COVID precautions in place, to some blend of the two. According to Jennings, the Oceanside School Board is currently considering options that would vary by grade level. The district has also added a web dedicated to reopeningwith current information on the plans. The recommendation for high school students is a hybrid model, with student split into two groups, with each spending two days on campus, either Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday, with three days working on distance learning each week.
The students attend school in a cohort that shares the same classes, to reduce the risk of COVID transmission.
And classrooms would be cleaned each day at lunch, and on Wednesdays, when no students are present. However, some parents of K students say their children need to be in school full time to receive appropriate educational services. And, the parents say, they need that schedule in order to fulfill their own work responsibilities. And there are parents whose kids are not great students, so leaving the kids at home and trusting them to do the work is a concern.

The demand for full-time school is particularly pressing for parents of special education students, many of whom receive extensive in-person services including speech therapy, physical therapy and one-to-one instruction. She said her daughter typically receives 1, hours of specialized services per year through year-round instruction, but is now receiving just two half-hour Zoom sessions.
Her 9-year-old son is in general education, but Dimon said she was not satisfied with the quality and quantity of the distance learning opportunities for him. Both children, particularly her daughter, need a full-time school schedule, she said.
Other North County school districts are also considering options for full-time school attendance. On Wednesday, the Carlsbad Unified School District Board considered a plan to bring students back five days per week, with precautions including frequent cleaning and sanitizing of classrooms and equipment, frequent hand-washing, student health screening, use of face coverings, and limiting campus visitors, among other measures, Superintendent Ben Churchill said.
Parents from other districts are also asking for a full-time option. Allison Stratton, whose son will be a junior at Torrey Pines High School, said districts should convene panels of epidemiologists, physicians and school administrators to discuss how that could be accomplished safely.
Maddison said he suggests a system for Oceanside Unified in which students are split into smaller groups, spread out within currently unused classrooms in the district. He said that hiring substitute teachers would allow the district to stretch its teaching resources across a greater of small classes. And by hiring janitorial assistants to help clean and sterilize classrooms at night, it could insure campus hygiene, he suggested.
Although it may be expensive to pursue that option, he said it should be on the table for families and school officials to consider. Activists protest possible restrictions on unvaccinated San Diegans.
