Distance learning continues for Plumas students countywide

As California’s statewide stay home, stay safe health directive to combat the COVID-19 virus continues, Plumas educators are embracing distance-learning solutions to support well over 2,000 K-12 students at public, private and charter schools countywide.

Plumas Unified School District

Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) students began distance learning during the week of March 23 and will resume lessons following an April 6-10 spring break.

“Our local governing board is committed to providing educational opportunities for distance learning until such time as school is able to reopen for in-person learning,” PUSD Superintendent Terry Oestreich said in an April 3 update.

If, at any point in the school year, she clarified, PUSD students can return to their physical sites, and if it is safe to do so, the district “will preserve that option.”

She stated updates will continue and added, “for now,” PUSD will extend distance learning through May 1, shifting from supplemental to required distance learning on April 27.

“We are not prepared at this point to make the decision to remain on distance learning for the remainder of the school year; however we acknowledge that future guidance or directives from state and local agencies may necessitate this decision.”

Plumas Charter School

With its model of encouraging independent study as a large part of the curriculum and opportunities, Plumas Charter School (PCS) has also adapted to distance learning for all students.

The PCS website announced each of its learning centers have developed their own strategies “for making sure students and families have the resources they need to continue to study at home.”

Students can log into virtual classrooms; others complete worksheets at home and check in with teachers via text and email.

“This time of uncertainty provides an opportunity for Plumas Charter School to demonstrate its commitment to helping students become resilient, lifelong learners,” PCS stated.
