Letter from the Superintendent
July 23, 2020
Dear Tanque Verde District Families,
Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate delays in guidance and direction at the state level regarding returning to school. It is expected that Governor Ducey will further delay physically reopening schools in an announcement soon. ASBA (the Arizona School Boards Association) and other groups are advocating for specific guidance from the state public health departments with criteria to assist with the decision as to when safely reopening school facilities would be possible. This guidance is intended to provide clear instructions and guidelines for what this will look like.
Due to continued delays in the physical reopening of school facilities and the need for further clarification from the Pima County and Arizona Departments of Health, we decided to postpone sending the TVUSD Return to Learning Program Choice Survey. We will set a date based on the information we receive from our county/state health departments. We want to make sure the information our families receive is up to date and clear during these confusing times. We appreciate your patience and are so thankful to be part of your community!
We realize that families' decisions about how they want their students to attend school have continued to shift as circumstances have continued to evolve since we conducted our original parent and faculty surveys. We believe it is more realistic to request a program choice commitment when our information is more clear. We are pleased that we will be able to provide high-quality, in-person instruction as well as high-quality online instruction. To support our mission we intentionally invested in a robust online education program that is a true online learning system and will ensure our students meet academic standards. We know this is an overwhelming time, but we want you to know that we will support you and your children either way! If you need additional assistance with technology questions, please contact our IT department at [email protected]
