Middle & High School Distance Learning

  • For the fall of 2020, San Juan Unified's distance learning model for middle and high schools will feature a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning activities. Students will receive daily interaction with teachers and student peers in each class/subject. 

Instructional Time

  • Depending on the school’s schedule, minimum daily instructional time varies from 260 (4x4 block schools) to 270 minutes (6-period schools). 

    Each period provides for a minimum of 30 minutes of daily synchronous instruction with only certain periods held each day to provide adequate time for instruction in the distance learning model. (See the high school schedules for more details). The first 15 minutes of each period will start with synchronous instruction with a minimum of an additional 15 minutes of instruction during the period’s scheduled time.
