UPDATE: Transition from Virtual to In-Person Learning, 9/3/2020
After a comprehensive review of options to reopen schools in-person, the Chandler Unified School District Governing Board voted to welcome Secondary students (7 – 12) back to campus fully in-person on October 13, 2020.
The health pandemic is a complex issue. In recent weeks, there have been two noteworthy changes in the data that led the Governing Board to revisit in-person instruction. First, the numbers of cases in Arizona and the City of Chandler have significantly decreased over the last several weeks. Secondly, the Maricopa County Health Department benchmarks for Chandler Unified School District have steadily improved. The reopening plan approved by the Governing Board is contingent upon the benchmarks remaining stable or improving. Safety and mitigation practices will be a priority including, but not limited to, the requirement for staff and students to wear face coverings when on campus. Schools will be providing further information over the next week.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Thank you for your input, your patience and your continued support. Please refer to the district website for more information.

The Governing Board approved the return to in-person, teacher-led classroom instruction beginning second quarter if the District can do so in a manner consistent with the Maricopa County Health Department/Arizona Department of Health Services public health benchmarks in effect at that time. The board will re-evaluate at its September 25 meeting if the criteria has not been previously met. Updates and letters from the District will continue to be posted on our website at www.cusd80.com/SaferStrongerTogether.
We look forward to safely welcoming students back to in-person instruction, and until then will be working hard to provide a quality learning experience for students in our online and virtual learning environments.
