District Update - School Closures Extended to End of School Year

March 30, 2020

Dear Tanque Verde District Families,

Governor Doug Ducey and Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman today announced the extension of Arizona school closures through the end of the school year.

“Today’s announcement is intended to give parents and educators as much certainty as possible so they can plan and make decisions,” noted the Governor’s Office announcement, released this morning.

TVUSD teachers, staff and administrators have already begun planning for an extended closure. As you know, today is our first day of remote instruction and providing educational opportunities for all students. This announcement confirms that we are on the right course to finish the school year. We will continue on the path we have outlined for our families - to provide essential, extended and enrichment learning activities for all students through a remote learning framework, until the end of the school year.

The decision to close schools through the end of the 2019-20 school year does include additional provisions. Those provisions, detailed in legislation signed into law on March 27th by Governor Ducey (H.B. 2910) include the following:

  • Statewide testing requirements are suspended
  • School days are not extended into the summer
  • Learning opportunities for students are required to continue
  • Teachers and staff will see no disruption in pay as a result of COVID-19

We continue to prioritize maintaining support for our students and families, as well as doing our part to keep our community safe. As we work together through this first week of remote learning, please let us know if there is anything we could be doing to improve our communications or guidance to families. If your student is in need of instructional or technology support, please reach out to your school or classroom teacher(s).

Please continue to watch for your school communications and guidance for school specific information. We wish you all a successful first week of remote learning, and please know we’re here for you. Just let us know how we can help!

All my best,

Scott Hagerman, Ed.D

Superintendent
