Dear Tanque Verde District Families,
We want to make you aware of the following Executive
Orders, recently announced by Governor Ducey's Office, and how they impact our
reopening planning for the 20-21 school year.
Monday June 29th, 2020, Governor Ducey signed an Executive Order delaying the
opening of in-person classes to August 17th. Given the fluidity of the
situation, it is possible this date will be further extended by the state. In order to maintain the current Tanque Verde Unified School District
calendar, the district administration
is recommending keeping the August 6th scheduled start date and
beginning with remote instruction. This
recommendation will be discussed in greater detail during the July 8th
Governing Board meeting.
Instruction and Distance Learning
On Wednesday June 24, 2020, Governor Ducey signed an Executive Order to
provide schools flexibility for the 20-21 school year. The Executive Order is part of a set of
actions the Governor announced for a program called AZCares: Flexibility And Funding
For Schools And Families. The
program allows the Tanque Verde School Unified District to offer two distinct options once schools are reopened. The options include a 5-days a week in-person
learning program, or a 100% online distance learning program. The online distance learning program will
utilize Edgenuity as the learning
platform, and will be facilitated by Tanque Verde USD teachers.
information, including detailed answers
to frequently asked questions, will be sent by Friday, July 3rd. If you have
additional questions or concerns following the detailed communication, please
send them to your school principal.
