Distance Learning Plan Information

During this COVID-19 Crisis, the UCSC/YPSA leadership team has been working closely with the Academy Council teachers on a distance learning plan as quickly as possible to get our scholars back into learning through an online platform. We appreciate your patience in allowing us to explore this new approach.

Below is a tentative schedule of events that will happen.


March 16-20, 2020

The leadership team and Academy Council explored internet connectivity, computer devices, distance learning information released by the state, and formulated a distance learning plan inclusive of a set of criteria and a structure to guide the development of online materials for classroom teachers.  

Explored online meeting platforms and trained leadership team to use it. Provided training to appointed teachers on the Academy Council on the usage of the meeting platform.  

March 23-27, 2020

Academy Council finalizes the distance learning plan, and teachers begin the development of online materials. The leadership team and appointed teachers will continue to explore the online learning platform to administer learning materials to scholars.

Provide training for classroom teachers, scholars, and parents on the use of the distance learning platform.  

At the same time, information technology staff will evaluate the existing infrastructure to ensure access for teachers and scholars to the online materials.

Processes and procedures are developed for the management of online access and computer device check-out.

While this is going on, all scholars, 1st through 6th grade, with internet access to online learning at home can log onto Moby Max with their login and password.  It is expected that scholars spend 30 minutes on ELA and 30 minutes on Math.  Scholars can login using the following link:
