Reopening Homepage


  • Our students are currently in distance learning.


    Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) — like other school districts, organizations, and businesses — will gradually reopen for more in-person work, services, and instruction this school year. We are following strict state and local health department criteria while we work to ensure the safety of students, staff, and family members. Our chief goal is for students and staff to be in safe, COVID-free environments by establishing consistent on-site safety precautions that are regularly monitored, as well as relying on flexible arrangements like limited and small group in-person support and distance learning to supplement work we would normally do all in-person. We want our students, families, and staff to feel as comfortable as possible returning. 

    Thank you for your feedback on our reopening plans through our surveys, virtual town halls, committee meetings, board meetings, and focus groups. We received thousands of comments and questions which helped to strengthen our plan and provide the flexibility we will need as we continue to navigate the pandemic. Questions are also used to build out the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section of our website.

    Reopening Plans

    Following our Phase Two Reopening Plan, some students will gradually begin to return to campuses by invitation when Santa Clara County moves to the Orange Tier of California's Blueprint for a Safer Economy. When we transition, families who wish to keep their children in full distance learning will have that option.
