COVID-19 Scholar and Family Resources

For Meal Distribution information, click into your regional resources page within our left sidebar.

We are entering into a new normal as an Aspire community, and our team is working relentlessly to provide the best resources, most up-to-date information, and ongoing opportunities for our scholars to continue learning and connecting during these unprecedented times. 

Distance Learning Hub

The Distance Learning Hub will serve as homebase for all things digital learning. This hub will house Google Classroom, where Aspire teachers will be posting academic resources and daily activities for students, along with an array of resources for scholars and families that will help guide this brand-new learning experience. 

In-Person Assessments

Beginning this quarter, Aspire will offer in-person, one-on-one Special Education Assessments. In August, Governor Newsom announced that schools may provide in-person assessments to students with ‘acute needs,’ even if their county is purple and their schools are operating in distance learning. In order to prioritize safety, we will start slowly and with our scholars who have had pending initial assessments since the closure started in March.

Aspire will follow rigorous safety protocols, outlined by the CDC and the California Department of Public Health, for anyone entering the building for an assessment. A COVID self-assessment (see how-to guide here) will need to be completed each day a student will be present on campus. Parents can complete for each of their students through their PowerSchool parent portal account or students can complete themselves through their student portal account.

We recognize that this may raise questions from our families about how we will conduct these assessments and if and when we may provide other services. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your Regional Director of Special Education. At this time, Aspire is only providing assessments in person, not services, for students.

Regional Resources Pages

Each of the regional pages, located within the left sidebar, catalog community resources to help navigate current circumstances in and out of the classroom. From device and meal distribution details to COVID-19 communications, we will update region-specific information as frequently as needed in order to provide the details our families need.

We cannot wait for the day when we are together again on our campuses. Until then and long after, we are here to listen, grow, and adjust each and every day.
