Roadmap to Reopen (2020-21)

     Central information about the 2020-21 school year has shifted to our 2020-21 School Start / COVID-19 Response page.

     MDUSD's Roadmap to Reopen was an informational campaign that lasted from May through July of 2020. Its purpose was to keep stakeholders involved with and informed about the planning process for the unique 2020-21 school year, amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

     A triad of Task Forces, comprised of district administrators, teachers, community members, and students, diligently worked to provide input to the Board of Education on multiple school reopening scenarios that aligned with public health orders and concurrent coronavirus pandemic information. The Board of Education unanimously voted to reopen schools with 100% distance learning, and staff subsequently published the 2020-21 Reopening Plan (below), detailing its commitment to phase into physical environments only when and where the highest standards of health and safety can be achieved, consistent with public health orders.
