Online Instruction Begins for All Students on August 10, 2020

Due to uncertainty regarding resuming instruction on our school campuses during the pandemic, combined with the importance of creating a stable educational environment for our families and staff, Tucson Unified has determined that we will begin instruction for all students via Remote Learning on Monday, August 10, 2020. We will then transition those interested in an on-campus learning experience when it is deemed safe.

Although starting this school year remotely is not ideal, we are committed to offering every child a rigorous curriculum, five days a week, from our highly qualified teachers. Instruction will be conducted utilizing teacher Zoom lessons, as well as some recorded lessons and offline homework.

Remote instruction will be consistent with real-time classroom instruction and will utilize approved online programs and assessment tools.

Your Two Options Once On-campus Learning is Deemed Safe

In order to help us accurately plan for when it is safe to return to the classroom, we are requesting you reserve your space in one of our two learning options:

  • In-School Learning: On-campus learning spaces at your child's school. Learning facilitated by one of our teachers and in conjunction with online classmates.
  • Remote Learning: Teacher-facilitated and supported instruction from your home

You can choose which learning option is best for each child in your household. Please note that you can change your selected learning option until August 1, 2020. Once school gets underway, you will be able to transition your child from one learning option to another, if desired, at defined intervals.

Review these two options, and when you're ready to make your choice, reserve your space through online registration for your school.

If you have already completed Online Registration and just need to answer the three Learning Option questions, select 2020-2021 Three Learning Option Questions Only.

If you need to complete or edit Online Registration, select 2020-2021 Online Registration (includes three questions).
