Bilingual update — Flagstaff Unified School District to Start School Year with Remote Learning. See more local education news

The Flagstaff Unified School District Governing Board approved a recommendation to have all students begin the 2020-2021 school year, on August 17, 2020, in Flexible Remote Learning and Distance Learning options only and delay the start of In-Person Learning at school sites at least through the first quarter (October 9, 2020).  The recommendation to move entirely to online remote learning was based on significant levels of spread and positive cases of COVID-19 in local communities and the state of Arizona, and the District’s commitment to the health and safety of students, FUSD staff, and vulnerable members of our communities.

“Making this decision now provides more certainty about the start of the school year, and enables staff to focus solely on preparing for high quality remote and distance learning,” said FUSD Superintendent Michael Penca. “We know this decision impacts our students, families, and community, and we appreciate their understanding and flexibility as we deal with the implications of this global pandemic.”
