MPUSD Makes Move to Keep 6th Grade at Elementary Level Beginning in 2021-22

On Tuesday, February 9, 2021, our Board of Education discussed and approved the decision making timeline for the reconfiguration and consolidation of MPUSD schools.  You may recall last school year the district convened a Vision 2025+ Task Force and engaged stakeholders in multiple community engagement meetings and surveys about the future of our schools. One of the key focus areas was whether or not to maintain 6th grade at the elementary school level.

UPDATE: Free Food for Families Locations

ARCHIVES: Reopening of Our Schools Community Meetings

The Monterey Peninsula Unified School District initiated an internal Task Force to begin exploring the reopening of our schools in the 2020-21 school year based on the new guidelines released from the California Department of Education and the California Department of Public Health. The guidelines require schools to consider hybrid schedules in order to limit the total number of students on campus at one time and ensure that students are kept at least 6 feet apart where practical.  MPUSD held four community Town Hall meetings to provide information, answer questions and to hear input from families.

Monterey County Herald: Guest Editorial PK Diffenbaugh: State Budget Must Reflect Our Values: Invest in Schools

Educators will be forced to overcome this budget challenge — offering services despite the lack of adequate resources. We shouldn’t have to. It is a reflection of our societal values that we continue to underfund our schools while relying on them to be the primary institution responsible for meeting the needs of our most vulnerable populations.

The Monterey Adult School is a place for people to come for a chance to acquire the skills and knowledge to be successful in today's world. This may mean becoming more employable, more able to successfully participate in community college or university, or trade school, and/or better able to assist their children in their academic progress. The staff recognizes and responds to each student as an individual with unique needs. In addition, the staff meets each student where he or she is now and helps him/her move forward to where he/she wants to go. Without this "stepping stone" available to them, many would not have the resources to move forward in their life.
