Distance Learning Plan
The YPSA School Re-Opening Committee (inclusive of two administrators, office staff, nurse, custodial, two teachers, food services, support staff, and parents) was established to review the guidelines for school re-opening provided by the California Department of Education, the Sacramento County Office of Education, the County Public Health Department, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

2. NIET Planning Guide: Scenarios and Considerations for 2020-2021
3. REACH Protocol – Safe Return to School
4. COVID-19 Industry Guidance: Schools and School-based Programs
5. CSDC COVID-19 Instruction Compliance Checklist
6. Comparison of School Re-Opening Guidelines
After a review of the guidelines and documents available, a school re-opening timeline was
developed that detailed the work needed to be done before July 24, 2020 so school can be re-opened on July 27, 2020.
However, on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, the County Office of Education, in collaboration with the County Public Health Department, made the determination that all schools in the 13 districts within Sacramento County cannot open for on-site learning. As such, YPSA will be re-opening with full distance learning until it is safe to re-open school for on-site learning.
