IB Online Teaching and Planning for Schools

Kelsey Day, IB Relationship Manager, has responded to my request for information and guidance from IB for educators conducting remote learning with their students. We hope that the March 2020 IB publication, "Online learning, teaching and educational continuity planning for schools." will assist California educators.

Please send me any additional items that you think would benefit our community and I will be happy to share them.

Warm regards,

Newsom suspends state testing

March 18 - Based upon separate comments from Governor Newsom yesterday and State Superintendent Thurmond this morning, California is expected to cancel all required assessments for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, pending the approval of a federal waiver.

We anticipate the Governor to issue an executive order soon to formalize the position and we will provide that to you when it is available.
