DUSD Family Commitment Form

DUSD Families,

As we shared recently, the Alameda County Public Health Department and Alameda County Office of Education announced the limited and phased reopening of schools, beginning at the elementary school level. One of our most important next steps includes obtaining clear commitments from our families on whether they’d like their student(s) to remain in a distance learning environment or be a part of our hybrid model.

Elementary Students (TK-5)
As announced during our DUSD Virtual Family Town Hall, our goal is to reopen in a hybrid model in a staggered format starting January 19, 2021. The exact details on what grade levels will return is yet to be determined. This start date will accommodate a quarantine period should any of our families travel during the break.

Secondary Students 
Our goal is to reopen in early 2021, but we have not set the target date yet as Alameda County just released this news on Wednesday. Our planning includes secondary students, so it is important to obtain family commitments at this time to aid us in our planning.

YOUR NEXT STEP
Families must complete a DUSD Family Commitment Form. This serves as your official decision to have your student(s) remain in distance learning or move into the hybrid model once it is available.

  • If you have more than one child, you can choose what works best for each of them. You will need to fill out separate surveys for each child in your home.
  • The decision you are making now is for the remainder of the school year. However, if DUSD is given the opportunity to move into a full-time in-person instruction phase, then we will re-evaluate and check back in with our staff and families. 
  • Your student’s teacher(s) may change based on our resources for our hybrid model. 
  • DO NOT contact your student’s teacher(s) to ask them questions regarding their preferences to work in a hybrid or distance learning environment.

Hybrid Model Structure 
Hybrid is a combination of in-person and distance learning. Before we reopen in a hybrid model, we will ensure that our plan fulfills all elements in the School Reopening Checklist established by the Alameda County Office of Education and Alameda County Public Health Department.

Thank you for your continued support of our district. We look forward to hearing from you.
