Learning At Home (links to resources, tech support!)

Dear SB Unified Families,

Thank you for your patience in these uncertain times. Our district office team has been actively formulating short- and long-term plans for instruction that will meet the needs of all our learners in SB Unified. We will continue to provide regular updates via ParentSquare, and we thank you for monitoring and directing questions to your student’s site administrators, whom we appreciate for their dedicated service to students and families this week.

In the short-term, our district is sharing the website Learning at Home which features information and resources to support families during school closure. We have also developed a plan to provide students with iPads that they might have left at school last week. We will send you next steps as updates become available. We expect to continue to add resources and guidance on an ongoing basis.  

In the long term, leaders and teachers are formulating more robust remote learning plans in order to resume instruction.

In addition, every student at Dos Pueblos High School received a Goleta Valley Public Library card, which provides them with free access to the following apps:
 
 A digital database of ebooks, audiobooks, and digital video for students to use for class research and independent reading.
A magazine database to be used for research in the sciences, arts, and humanities.
Full complimentary access to The New York Times database of articles for students to use for research writing, current events reporting, and credible source analysis.
Free access to tutoring in every subject at every grade level, as well as tutoring in college application essay writing.

Estimadas familias del Distrito Escolar Unificado de Santa Bárbara:

Agradecemos su paciencia en estos tiempos de incertidumbre. El equipo de nuestro distrito está trabajando arduamente en formular planes de enseñanza a corto y largo plazo para que se atiendan las necesidades de todos nuestros estudiantes en el SBUnified. Continuaremos enviándoles información actualizada en ParentSquare, y les agradecemos por estar al pendiente y enviar sus preguntas a los administradores de la escuela de su hijo/a. Estamos agradecidos por el destacado servicio que dichos administradores han brindado a nuestros estudiantes y familias esta semana.

A corto plazo, el distrito ha compartido el sitio web  Aprendiendo en Casa que contiene información y recursos para familias para facilitar aprendizaje a distancia. También se ofrecerá un plan de distribución de iPads para aquellos estudiantes de 3º a 12º grado que dejaron su dispositivos en la escuela. Tenemos previsto continuar añadiendo recursos y guías constantemente.

A largo plazo, los maestros y líderes estarán formulando planes para el aprendizaje a distancia con el fin de reanudar las clases.
