Tusd School Opening


Tucson's largest School District plans to open schools for hybrid in-person learning on Nov. 12, following a split vote by the governing Board. The TUSD survey found that 45 % of families want to start hybrid, which will have colleagues of children split into morning and afternoon sessions, while 71 % of teachers say they do not want to go back into the classroom with coronavirus cases on the rise yet again. Fear that TUSD teachers have to return to the classroom is one of the reasons Tucson Unified Board Member Rachael Sedgwick has been asking the District to wait until January or later to open. Board Member Adelita Grijalva also voted against the November date, saying she couldnt approve something that she doesnt even feel is safe for her own children. Board Members Bruce Burke, Leila Counts and Kristel Foster voted in favor of the Nov. 12 start date. Two drivers to open campuses are that students struggle more in remote learning and the worsening decline in student enrollment, which could create some hard financial decisions for the District. TUSD, which last year had 45 000 students, has already seen 5. 7 % enrollment loss, or 2 500 students, which could mean a minimum of 15 million budget reduction next year. Superintendent Gabriel Trujillo said this budget shortfall would mean structural level cuts that are going to be very, very difficult conversations. And loss could be greater than 15 million. During just three weeks in October, TUSD lost about 450 students. Trujillo said hes heard from principals that some families are leaving because the District isnt open and other Tucson-area schools are. There have been families that have not been happy not having full-time supervision of their kids, he say. But hybrid model is still not full-time supervision. In TUSD, it will be half day and in many districts, students are only on campus two days a week. Pima County Health Department supports school districts holding in-person hybrid instruction, and every other major school district in Tucson has reopen, though TUSD has a much larger student body and geographical footprint than any other District locally. Tucson unify will continue to defer to the local Health Department on whether Nov. 12 continues to be a safe day to begin hybrid learning.
