School Closure Confirmed for Remainder of School Year
Posted 4/7/20

Greetings MDUSD Community,

     This afternoon, the Public Health Officers and County Superintendents in six Bay Area counties, including Contra Costa, have announced they will officially extend the suspension of in-class instruction through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The full joint public statement is available here.

     In our public messaging last week, we expressed our anticipation of this action. During spring break, we have been working to ensure that our Governing Board is aware of our efforts to enhance our extended distance learning design, ensure clarity on grading processes for students and educators, and to provide as much information as we can to our public. We fully expect to provide clarity on these issues during the virtual Governing Board Meeting of April 13, 2020.

     During this Spring Break, I would encourage you most of all to stay safe. The efforts thus far from our staff, families, and community to connect, engage, and support has been impressive to say the least—I am confident that as we continue to enhance our services and provide clarity on remaining issues, that we can finish our school year strongly together, even at a distance.
