Students will begin returning to classrooms this month following decision by Scottsdale Unified School District Governing Board to approve phase full reopening for all grade levels. The plan, approved unanimously on Sept. 9, gives the green light for students to return to campus for the first time since schools were shut down in March at onset of the pandemic. The decision follows similar moves by Valley districts like Mesa, Chandler and nearby Cave Creek, which also voted to reopen schools over the next few weeks. Susd students in kindergarten through 2 grade will return to classrooms on Sept. 21, followed by 3 through 5 grades on Sept. 29. Following district fall break, middle and high school students will return to classrooms on Oct. 12. The District administration had already planned to bring special education and pre - K students back to campus on Sept. 14. The district will also continue to offer distance learning option to families that wish to remain at home for the time being due to health issues or other concerns. The decision to offer a full in - person return option to families came just a week after the Sept. 1 meeting where the Governing Board considered implementing a hybrid model that would have seen students come back to campus just two days each week until the District meets green benchmarks recommended by State health officials - and adopted by Governing Board - that signal it is safe to fully reopen schools. Susd is currently in the yellow zone, according to those benchmarks and only qualifies in the eyes of health officials to reopen on a hybrid basis. Benchmarks are voluntary. As of Sept. 10, ZIP codes where SUSD students live had an average of 86 COVID - 19 cases per 100 000 residents, percent positivity rate of 5. 3 percent and just 2 percent of area hospitalizations were for COVID - like symptoms. These two metrics fall within the green zone, but guidelines recommend that the District reach under 10 cases per 100 000 for two straight weeks to allow for five days in classrooms. Cases per 100 000 in SUSD ZIP codes jumped from 34 from Aug. 23 - 29 to 86 from Aug. 30 - Sept. 5, according to data posted by Maricopa County last Thursday, day after the Board meeting. Some of that jump can be attributed to huge spike in cases in 85281, which includes Arizona State University. But, overall, eight of districts 15 ZIP codes saw both case numbers and percent positivity rise week over week, according to the latest data available on the Countys dashboard. That means the District is likely to remain in the yellow hybrid zone for the foreseeable future. Dr. Rebecca Sunenshine, Maricopa County medical director for disease control, told SUSD Superintendent Scott Menzel that it is unlikely the District will fall below 10 cases per 100 000 until there is vaccine. But the board two weeks ago directed Superintendent Scott Menzel to survey families to find out their opinion on several reopening options.
