Dear Roynon Families,
I hope this letter finds you and your family well. I wanted to take the opportunity to follow up on Superintendent Coles’ letter that was sent out last week in regards to our transition to online learning for the beginning of the 2020-21 school year, per our BUSD School Board and Governor Newsom’s order.
At Roynon, we are currently preparing for the start of the school year. Our preparation will ensure our readiness to implement a comprehensive and robust distance learning plan that will deliver the high-quality education that is the hallmark of Bonita Unified. Regardless of where the learning is happening, please know that classes will have high levels of accountability for students with rigorous curriculum.
The image below highlights the difference from our past experiences with distance learning and our future plans:
Our distance learning program for 2020-21 will include rigorous daily instruction and student accountability regarding completion of work. We are in the process of currently developing a schedule of learning. In addition, we are excited to announce that we have acquired a new learning platform, Canvas, for all BUSD teachers, students, and families to utilize for the 2020-21 school year. More information will be forthcoming regarding the use of this platform for students AND parents/caregivers.
Throughout the summer, many teachers have been participating in professional development on our district-wide learning management system (Canvas) and developing strategies for a comprehensive and robust curriculum delivered virtually.
In terms of registration and completion of forms for the 2020-21 school year, please visit our district website for kindergarten and NEW student registration.
