Self-Guided Student Learning Materials & Resources

En Español

March 18, 2020

Dear SUSD Families & Students,

In response to COVID-19 (coronavirus), all SUSD classes and school-related activities were canceled for three weeks through Monday, April 6th, 2020. Stockton Unified School District is dedicated to ensuring our students continue to receive relevant and meaningful educational experiences while not in school and have been working diligently to prepare for distance-learning academic plans that include digital and non-digital instruction.

We are prepared to provide TK-12 student learning materials that are self-guided and should be seen as a way to review and reinforce instruction students have already received from their teachers. Beginning Monday, March 23rd, 2020 learning materials will be available for distribution at the follows locations and times:

Dates Times & Sites

The student learning materials being distributed will also be available online at www.stocktonusd.net/LearnFromHome and on all SUSD school websites on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. On this page, we have also included the quick links to our adopted curriculum (e.g., i-Ready, Benchmark, Pearson, etc.) In addition, we have provided a list of free, online educational resources and support for students. While the completion of the materials provided is not mandatory, we are asking that students save all completed distance learning assignments in
the event they are collected later.

School staff, central office personnel, and community volunteers will be available to support the distribution of student learning materials. Signage with directions will be displayed to ensure smooth pick up of learning materials that will be sorted by grade level or course. To adhere to social distancing, students and families are asked not to stay and congregate on the school premises. Please submit questions by emailing the classroom teacher or www.stocktonusd.net/COVID-19. Classroom teachers will be available during school hours to answer emails from students and parents if there are questions or additional information is needed.

Families who need support with Internet access can apply for two free months of service with Comcast through its Internet Essentials program at www.internetessentials.com or by calling 1-800-934-6489. Xfinity WiFi hotspots across the nation are also available to anyone who needs them for free – including non-Xfinity Internet subscribers. For a map of Xfinity WiFi hotspots,

The success of this plan is incumbent on many SUSD departments working together to support our classroom teachers to aid in our collective effort to ensure student learning is continuous and ongoing outside of the four walls of our classrooms.

The student materials provided are part of a short term plan to ensure students continue to engage in learning opportunities. As this is an ongoing crisis, we are preparing a long term solution for the eventuality that students are out of school longer than three weeks. This includes how teachers engage with students online.

SUSD will continue to monitor the development of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and will plan accordingly, in partnership with local, state, and federal health and government officials. For accurate, up-to-date information from SUSD regarding the pandemic, please check the District website at www.stocktonusd.net/COVID-19.

 

Thank you for your continued partnership,

John Deasy, Superintendent
