BY: Ronan Collver, Superintendent, Brisbane School District, rcollver@brisbanesd.org

The Brisbane School District held the first Public Hearing for the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan on September 9th and is posted on our district webpage HERE (www.brisbanesd.org). This document is in place of the LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan) which has been temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This document is vital for our community to understand the steps we are taking in our district to offer the best educational opportunities that we can to our students. Detailed information on the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan can be found on the California Department of Education website.

Background

Senate Bill 98, approved by Governor Newsom on June 29, 2020, made several key changes to accountability requirements for 2020-21.  These include the establishment of a new requirement, The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan. The Plan solidifies the ongoing planning process for the 2020-21 school year.  It includes some items that are pending, still in development, and/or being discussed with a variety of stakeholders.  The Learning Continuity Plan is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students and community members, while both streamlining engagement and condensing several preexisting plans. The plan includes descriptions of how the district is doing the following:

  • Addressing gaps in learning due to impacts of COVID-19
  • Discussing the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the School District and the community
  • Conducting meaningful stakeholder engagement
  • Maintaining transparency
  • Addressing the needs of unduplicated pupils, students with unique needs, and students experiencing homelessness
  • Providing access to necessary devices and connectivity for distance learning
  • Providing resources and supports to address student and staff mental health and social emotional well-being
  • Continuing to provide school meals for students
