On-Site Learning Plan
WHAT: Phoenix Union is committed to providing students with the greatest need, a safe and productive learning environment. During this time, campuses will be open to provide specific services in-person to an identified group of students. Students will receive individualized services and interventions in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and/or by members of our Student & Family Services Division.
WHO: Specific students identified with high needs per their Individualized Education Plan or by our Student & Family Services Division. PXU staff will reach out directly to parents or guardians of identified students to share more information about what will be offered and to confirm interest/attendance.
WHERE: PXU comprehensive campuses will be open specifically for these high-need services to be delivered during the school day. To ensure the safest environments, specific spaces are designed to adhere to physical distancing as well as frequent sanitation routines throughout the day.
WHEN: Hours of operation are 7:30am-3:00pm, Monday-Friday, beginning August 17, 2020 at our Desiderata campus; other comprehensive campuses will begin on August 19, 2020. Services begin promptly at 9:00am, with breakfast served from 7:30am-9:00am.
Important information and guidelines for students pre-identified as eligible to receive specialized services in person:
Student Identification/Sign-Up: First and foremost, PXU is committed to the safety and wellness of our students and staff. Staff will reach out to specific families. With current group size limitations, identified families are expected to confirm their student’s attendance prior to the upcoming week they will be on campus.
Acknowledgment: Parents will be asked to sign a COVID-19 acknowledgment form in order to attend an on-site learning space.
Transportation: Students with identified transportation needs per their IEP or through the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act will be transported to their campus.
Food Services: Breakfast and lunch are provided to students receiving services on-site.
Health Checks: Upon entering campus, students and staff will be asked to respond to a brief set of questions focused on identifying known COVID-19 symptoms and receive a temperature check. Per CDC guidelines, any student with responses coinciding with known COVID-19 symptoms, or with a temperature of 100.4 or greater, will remain in an isolated area until a parent or guardian is able to pick them up from school. Any student that is sick or not feeling well is asked to stay home. Staff or visitors will follow the same guidelines and will be asked to stay home if sick, or leave campus if displaying symptoms or a fever. Please note that visitors to campus beyond the administration building will be very limited.
Face Masks and Physical Distancing: Students and staff are expected to wear face masks while on campus (unless it has been determined the student cannot wear a face mask for medical reasons). If a student does not have a face mask, one will be provided. Students and staff will adhere to the CDC guidelines associated with physical distancing when on campus.
