Distance Learning Support

All MPUSD schools will open the 2020-2021 school year in a distance learning model. We are committed to making sure that students continue to experience the care and commitment of our staff and the routine of daily learning, even in full Distance Learning. We acknowledge that our approach to distance learning cannot replicate the deep connections and social learning that happens when school is in regular session and in-person (the invaluable social interactions, real-time in-person feedback, community and extracurricular events, and so on). However, we do contend that quality learning can occur from a distance with our new Distance Learning 2.0 Plan. We endeavor in our Distance Learning Plan to accomplish three goals TK–12:
  • Consistent Live Student-Teacher Contact Time
  • Online Synchronous Content Delivery
  • Online Monitoring of Student Progress/Student Assessment
Teachers will engage in newly developed training modules designed to improve online planning and teaching skills, and help transfer their well-established in-person teaching methods to hybrid and full distance learning modalities. We learned a great deal last spring, listened deeply to parents, families, and students about online instruction, and are confident that our program will be greatly improved.
Should you have any questions along the way, we are here to help. 
These are the most common apps and features we use, but does not cover everything your child will be using. For more information and support, visit the school district's website by visiting mpusd.net and clicking on the Parent tab. You can also click here to go to the distance learning parent portal.
Below you will find several resources to support you and your child in distance learning. If you have any further questions, please contact your child's teacher. If you have any recommendations or suggestions to add to this list, please contact Ms. Rua (niturburua@mpusd.k12.ca.us)
