CSBA’s Delegate Assembly met on May 16, 2021 to discuss one of the most significant and scrutinized issues in the history of California public schools: the return of full-time, in-person instruction statewide. Nearly 250 Delegates were organized into 14 separate breakout rooms to ask questions, share information, discuss challenges and voice their concerns.
The May 2021 Delegate Assembly Report synthesizes the conversations by the Delegates into seven common topics that local educational agencies are grappling with as they prepare for the 2021–22 academic year.
In addition to the May 2021 Delegate Assembly Report, CSBA released the Delegate Assembly Resource Guide, Turning crisis into opportunity: Resources for board members planning for the 2021–22 year and beyond. This guide provides board members with a collection of timely resources, recent research and evidence-based practices to help address the most important topics that were identified by Delegates.
Topics identified by Delegate Assembly:
- Mental and social-emotional health of students and staff
- Professional development and new hire training
- Use of one-time funds
- Learning recovery
- Program delivery
- Return to campus protocols on health and safety
- Other challenges related to fall planning and implementation
