COVID-19 Scholar and Family Resources

Aspire Public Schools will be back on campus for the new school year! We are prepared and excited to safely welcome students back to campus on a full-time basis with the return to in-person instruction this 21-22 school year in alignment with the current state and public health guidelines for fall.

Throughout the pandemic, we have promised to be guided by the latest data and guidance, grounded in health and safety, and remain responsive to the needs and voices of our school communities and will continue to do so. Please review the available resources and information shown and contact us for further support if needed.

Independent Study Hub 

In-person learning is the best approach for student success – study after study backs this up. State data and guidance, family support, and our experiences serving scholars in-person as we witness their renewed Bienestar (Well-being) – continue to affirm this decision. 

As we have done from the beginning, we will continue following the guidelines established by the CDC and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to keep our school communities safe. Within our schools, there is greater joy and community, high-quality academic and social-emotional experiences and development for scholars, and a safe learning environment that follows the latest public health guidance. 

While it is our strong preference that all scholars return for in-person learning, we recognize that some of our families (about 4%) are not yet comfortable returning in person. We are committed to providing those families an Independent Study (IS) program at least through the first quarter of SY 21-22. This will not be the same program that our families were familiar with during the Distance Learning of the last academic year and may look different in each Aspire school. 

The Independent Study Hub will serve as a home base for an array of resources for scholars and families that will help guide this brand-new learning experience. If you have not yet had a one-on-one conversation with your school about your intent to have your child continue learning through IS, please reach out immediately to your school’s office.

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. We will update region-specific information as frequently as needed in order to provide the details our families need.
