Updated Summer Offerings 2020

  • To our Solana Beach School District families,

    In light of continuing state and county health orders, we have updated our summer offerings as follows:

    Summer Learning and Enrichment Menus Grand Opening!

    Beginning Monday, July 6, click here to access the 2020 Solana Beach School District Summer Learning and Enrichment Menus!

    Teams of teachers have put together this special blend of delicious learning activities for you to sample to your heart’s content from July 6 - August 14. Activities are designed to bring fun and structure into your child’s summer days and may be used flexibly and interchangeably to meet your family’s schedule.

    Summer Learning and Enrichment menus include a blend of online and screenless, indoor and outdoor, small and big opportunities for you and your child to sample together.

    We would love to see what your child is working on this summer! If you choose to share videos or images on social media, please use the hashtags #sbsdedu and #sbsdsummerlearning, so we can follow along!

    Extended School Year (ESY)

    Extended School Year (ESY) is a summer program designed for students who receive special education and related services. Eligibility for ESY is determined by a student’s individualized education program team. Based on the guidelines set forth by the County Office and the Governor’s Executive Orders for summer 2020, the schedule for ESY will be July 6 - July 31 (20 days), with a tentative distance learning or blended model (distance learning and in person learning) at two campuses: Carmel Creek and Skyline, should social distancing guidelines permit.

    Summer Reading Intervention

    Summer Reading Intervention is a program the District offers each summer for students exiting Kindergarten through second grade. Classroom teachers use multiple criteria to identify students who can benefit from additional reading support during the summer. The K-2 Summer Reading Intervention Program is for students previously identified prior to school closures and will continue to be offered with a shifted timeline of July 20 - July 31 (10 days), with a tentative live or blended model at two campuses: Carmel Creek and Skyline, should social distancing guidelines permit.

    In addition, the Solana Beach Instructional Services Department is exploring the development of a two-week Reading Intervention class for students exiting 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, July 20 - July 31 (10 days), with a tentative live or blended model at two campuses: Carmel Creek and Skyline, should social distancing guidelines permit. As with the K-2 Reading Intervention Program, students would be invited to participate based on multiple data points, including the most recent available assessment data collected prior to school closures and teacher/principal input.

    On-Campus Summer Enrichment

    After much thought and consideration, the Solana Beach Summer Enrichment program will not be offered this year. We know this is disappointing to many of you, and we, too, are disappointed. However, with the uncertain length of county and state health orders, along with intense planning that needs to occur prior to reopening campuses, we no longer have the lead time necessary to coordinate Summer Enrichment for this year.

    We look forward to summer 2021, when we anticipate re-launching our better-than-ever annual Summer Enrichment program. In the meantime, from all of us in the Solana Beach School District, please stay safe and well.

    Sincerely,

    Jennifer Goldston
    Director of Instruction and Educational Technology
