Goals & Guiding Principles

The Evergreen School District’s Safe Together: Return to In-Person Learning Plan is based on the following goals:

  • To develop a robust teaching and learning plan that addresses keeping students and employees safe
  • Returning to in-person learning under various circumstances
  • Adapting our learning environment to various circumstances
  • Creating an equitable learning environment for all students under any circumstance

The Guiding Principles used in this process are:

Health and Safety Guiding Principle Icon
Health and Safety
Adhere to public health orders and rely on guidance and recommendations from public health officials.
Flexibility Guiding Principle Icon
Provide reasonable accommodations to individual students, families, and employees in response to their unique situations.
Student's Social Emotional Well-Being Guiding Principle Icon
Student's Social Emotional

Support the social and emotional well-being of our students, staff and community.
Learning Guiding Principle Icon
Provide high-quality instruction aligned with California State Standards.

As we thoughtfully approach returning students to our school campuses to in-person learning, we recognize our teachers and staff and thank them for their care, professionalism, flexibility and commitment throughout this historic time in our district. Because of their creativity and compassion, students have not only received a world-class education, they have also connected with other students through engaging and creative opportunities offered through virtual district-sponsored events and enrichment classes. Students' social and emotional needs have been supported by their teachers and through our district’s wellness resources.

This plan was approved by the Evergreen Board of Trustees on March 17, 2021. This plan is also contingent on the approval of the California Department of Public Health. At that time, additional instructions and details will be provided by principals and teachers to parents/guardians of students who will be returning to in-person learning.

Each member of our Evergreen family has been a branch of hope and strength as we increase the number of students and staff returning to campus, and keeping us Truly Evergreen and Safe Together.
