    Posted by Communication Team on 8/7/2020 9:45:00 AM

    Dear Oxnard Parents and Community,

    First, we are excited to remind you that the first day of instruction is Wednesday, August 19th 2020. School offices are open at this time and preparing to support your child’s education.

    Second, SCHOOL SCHEDULES for distance learning have been finalized in collaboration with the Oxnard Educators Association teacher bargaining unit. Teachers and administrators are using these schedules to be intentional in their instructional planning.

    One important feature of this of these schedules is that all schools will have the same schedule. They vary slightly by grade level and instructional minutes. You may find these schedules posted on our website in the next couple of days.

    Third, Wifi Internet access APPLICATIONS are available on the District webpage or at the school sites. In the event the district receives more applications than available Wi-Fi hot spots, the devices will be allocated based on Socio-Economic need, Foster Youth or Special Program enrollment.

    Finally, on Thursday August 13th 2020 the Superintendent, Dr. Karling Aguilera-Fort, will host a webinar to review the schedules for families. The links to the webinar will be posted on the district web page and social media early next week. The first webinar, at 11 a.m. will be in Spanish with English translation. The second webinar will be at 5:30 p.m. in English with Spanish translation.

    We look forward to instruction starting!

    Stay Healthy,

    Dr. Karling Aguilera-Fort

     

     

     

     

    Estimados padres y comunidad del Distrito Escolar de Oxnard,

     Primero, tenemos la satisfacción de recordarles que la primera semana de instrucción es el miércoles 19 de agosto de 2020. Las oficinas de las escuelas ya están abiertas y se están preparando para apoyar la educación de sus hijos.

     Segundo, ya se han finalizado los horarios del programa de Educación a Distancia en colaboración con la unidad de negociaciones de la Asociación de Educadores de Oxnard (Oxnard Educators Association, OEA). Los maestros y administradores tienen el firme compromiso de utilizar estos horarios en la planificación de la instrucción.

     Tercero, las aplicaciones para el acceso a internet wifi están disponibles en la página web del Distrito y en las escuelas. En caso de que el número de solicitudes que el distrito reciba sea mayor que el número de dispositivos que tiene disponibles, se asignarán los dispositivos sobre la base de la condición socioeconómica, estudiantes en hogares temporales o estudiantes matriculados en programas especiales

     Una característica importante es que todas las escuelas tendrán el mismo horario. Solo varían ligeramente por grado escolar y minutos de instrucción. Usted podrá encontrar estos horarios publicados en nuestro sitio web en los próximos días.

     Finalmente, el jueves 13 de agosto de 2020. El Superintendente Dr. Karling Aguilera-Fort conducirá un webinar para presentar los horarios a las familias. Los enlaces para participar en el webinar se publicarán en la página web y los medios sociales del Distrito a principios de la próxima semana. El primer webinar tendrá lugar a las 11:00 de la mañana y será en español con traducción al inglés. El segundo webinar tendrá lugar a las 5:30 de la tarde y será en inglés con traducción al español.

     ¡Estamos deseosos de comenzar la instrucción!

     Manténganse saludables,

     Dr. Karling Aguilera-Fort

  • Superintendent Update #5

    Posted by Oxnard School District on 7/23/2020 4:00:00 PM

    Greetings Oxnard School District Community,

     We want to assure you that while we are beginning the instructional year through full distance learning, all students will be provided high quality instruction.

     This letter is to share with you the details we are working on to start the year successfully using the guidelines of Senate Bill 98 (SB98). Instruction will be student-centered, providing equity and access, ensuring the safety of everyone.  

     Oxnard School District will include the following components for distance learning:

    • Regular Schedules for students and teachers
    • Instruction will happen during the instructional day
    • Attendance must be maintained
    • Grading will focus on standards
    • Schedules and details for distance learning are in development at this time
    • Daily live instruction
    • Content aligned to grade level standards at a quality equivalent to in-person
    • Access to technology and devices
    • Academic supports for students who have special needs
    • Designated and integrated ELD
    • Special education services

     

    Attendance matters. Students who are absent will be marked absent.

    Grades matter. Students will receive grades for every grading period.

     To support distance learning, teachers will use Canvas as an online classroom platform. This was selected to provide consistency across the district.  There will be trainings offered to teachers, parents and students. The program was selected to build a good school to home connection, to increase communication, for ease of use, and support for implementation for teaching staff.

     Distance learning will include synchronous, asynchronous, and independent practice. These are defined as follows:

    • Synchronous learning
      • Real time
      • Face-to-face meetings via Zoom, chat or phone
    • Asynchronous learning
      • Happens on your schedule
      • Activities are provided for reading, lectures for viewing, projects for completing, and exams for evaluation
      • Access and satisfy these requirements within a flexible time frame
    • Independent Practice
      • Work completed with little to no assistance
      • Reinforce skills and synthesize their newly acquired knowledge
      • Completed away from the teacher's direct guidance
      • Software based activities (Accelerated Reader, MyOn, ST Math, Lexia,…)

     SB98 Mandates

    • 180 instructional days
    • Document daily attendance
      • Missed instruction is an absence
      • LEA must plan to document chronic absenteeism
    • Daily attendance may include:
      • Online activities
      • Completion of regular assignments
      • Contact between teacher, student and/or parent
    • Instructional Minutes (43501)
      • 180 instructional minutes in TK and K.
      • 230 instructional minutes in grades 1 to 3, inclusive
      • 240 instructional minutes in grades 4 to 12, inclusive
    • LEA shall ensure a weekly engagement record verifying participation
    • School shall regularly communicate with parents/guardians regarding academic progress

     For more details on instruction please watch the Webinar on the Instructional Framework provided by Dr. Ana DeGenna, Assistant Superintendent of Education Services.

     Planning Ahead

    As we progress forward in the school year, we will assess when it is the right time to return students to campus.

     Our next messages will include details of a sample daily schedule and when schools will communicate information about the start of instruction.

     Future updates will be posted on the News tab on the Oxnard School District web page

    If you have any questions or suggestions, please email:

     Stay Healthy,

    Dr. Karling Aguilera-Fort
