Take two minutes to hear from Superintendent PK Diffenbaugh about the start up of the 2020-21 school year.
Last night, the Board of Education voted, on my recommendation, that the new school year start in full Distance Learning only. This decision was difficult to make as we know that the best place for students is at school. (Click headline to read more.)
As you know, all MPUSD schools will open the 2020-2021 school year in a Distance Learning model. We are committed to ensuring that students continue to experience the care and commitment of our staff and the routine of daily learning, even in full Distance Learning. (Click headline to read more.)
Take a minute to hear from Superintendent PK Diffenbaugh about the planning for the start of the 2020-21 school year, as well as sign up for a Town Hall to hear information and next steps.
The Monterey Peninsula Unified School District initiated an internal Task Force to begin exploring the reopening of our schools in the 2020-21 school year based on the new guidelines released from the California Department of Education and the California Department of Public Health. The guidelines require schools to consider hybrid schedules in order to limit the total number of students on campus at one time and ensure that students are kept at least 6 feet apart where practical. MPUSD held four community Town Hall meetings to provide information, answer questions and to hear input from families.
MPUSD's Summer Feeding Program offers meals to students during the summer months at six school locations. Learn more about the locations and times by clicking the title link.

Monterey County Herald: Guest Editorial PK Diffenbaugh: State Budget Must Reflect Our Values: Invest in Schools
Educators will be forced to overcome this budget challenge — offering services despite the lack of adequate resources. We shouldn’t have to. It is a reflection of our societal values that we continue to underfund our schools while relying on them to be the primary institution responsible for meeting the needs of our most vulnerable populations.
