4/22/2020: IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM THE PENINSULA EDUCATION FOUNDATION REGARDING SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS FOR 2020

This is to inform you of the decision that has been made regarding the status of summer school for this year.  All indicators point to a continuation of maintaining shelter in place and practicing social distancing for at least the next few weeks in an effort to flatten the curve and ultimately eradicate the Covid-19 virus.  As such, we believe it is a risk to think that an approval to reopen school campuses will be granted.

In lieu of offering “brick & mortar” summer programs including, Summer Break, PEP and the High School, we have determined that the creation of an online program at each level will best address the needs of the K-12 population we serve and avoid the possibility of having to shut down a program in progress, should an outbreak of the virus reemerge.

Instruction at the K-5 and 6-8 levels will differ from our traditional summer enrichment programs in order to address the concerns many parents and teachers have expressed regarding their students not having received the grade level curriculum in its entirety due to the unanticipated consequences of the viral outbreak.  Online instruction will focus primarily on providing additional academic support and further skill acquisition, reinforcement and enhancement in the content areas of English/Language Arts and Mathematics.  This will be accomplished by creating blocks of time for each subject and allowing parents the opportunity to choose one or both blocks for their child.  Each block of instruction will be thoughtfully constructed considering the age of the students served, the utilization of time for directed instruction, the need for a variety of experiences to address all learning modalities and the sensitivity to balance activities that allow for fun coupled with in depth learning.  All teachers will possess a high degree of proficiency in the utilization of online technology.

Courses at the high school level will be similar to the traditional summer program, offering opportunities for recovery of credit, promotion and advancement.  Moving to an online format may also allow us to increase the number of course offerings in specific subject areas.   Of course, all classes will meet the guidelines for high school graduation and UC and CSU admission requirements.  A list of proposed courses can be found under the Summer 2020 High School Online Courses tab.

Detailed information regarding each of our summer programs will be available on our website on or before April 28. 

ALL SUMMER PROGRAMS WILL BEGIN ON JUNE 22, 2020

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we retool our traditional programs to appropriately adapt to the ever changing conditions that currently prevail.
