Credit/No Credit for Spring 2020 Student Report Cards
On April 1st the California State Board of Education, Department of Education, University of CA, CA State University, and Association of CA Independent Universities and Colleges issued a joint statement assuring high school students and their families that they are dedicated to supporting learners in this unprecedented closure to in-person learning throughout the state. This statement established a path for K-12 districts to determine the most effective and equitable means for reporting middle and high school student achievement for spring 2020. In consultation with Santa Clara County Office of Education Superintendent Dr. Dewan, Santa Clara County Superintendents, MUSD secondary principals, District and teacher leaders, including our Milpitas Teachers Association, MUSD will implement Credit/No Credit for final reporting on student outcomes for Spring 2020.
The CA Dept. of Education issued guidelines in determining our decision which included the charge of ensuring learners are not harmed in any way. The MUSD credit/no credit system will allow for students to demonstrate competency on formative assessments and assignments provided by teachers through MUSD Educate Everywhere. This system mirrors the Multi-tiered Systems of Support that MUSD has implemented, and provides for additional investigation and personalization for those students who are not on track to earn credit this semester. For students who do not earn credit as determined by their teachers, they will participate in the MUSD Summer Bridge program. GPAs will remain the same as earned prior to March 16, 2020, and will be reported for that time period along with credit/no credit for Spring 2020 to universities and colleges for admission.
We want all of our learners to succeed and we recognize that our MUSD EducatEveryWhere is a work in progress and therefore, not all are able to fully access and experience learning opportunities. Universities across the country are modifying admissions and have statements similar to Harvard’s that students whose schools implement credit/no credit, “will not be disadvantaged as a result.” Similarly, Stanford issued a statement emphasizing “holistic application” processes and that students “will not be disadvantaged if [their] schools adopt a pass/fail policy.”
We have high expectations for every student, and provide multiple opportunities and pathways for success. We provide learning opportunities for all, and create nurturing environments where students are inspired and empowered. That is our MUSD Mission, and WE will do all we can for every one of our students.
Sincerely, Cheryl Jordan, Superintendent

MUSD extends flexible learning through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year
As our community, our county, and our country battle this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Milpitas Unified School District will extend its EducatEverywhere flexible learning program through the remainder of the 2019-20 school term. We will maximize our efforts to enhance MUSD Educate Everywhere, our flexible learning model for all students, while also furthering the collective effort to flatten the curve and slow the spread of this virus. We know our teachers, support staff, site leaders, and the entire MUSD team are up for this challenge.
Please be clear that while our campuses are physically closed, school remains in session through distance learning. Our educators continue to develop new, creative ways to deliver lessons, assignments, projects, virtual field trips, and other in-home activities. Our Spring Break will remain for the week of April 13-17 with meal service provided for students. Along with our Coronavirus web page with the latest COVID-19 messaging, we also designed a new Parent & Student Resource web page for easier access to essential information for our families.
For our Class of 2020, Milpitas HS Principal Francis Rojas’ message addresses grades and high school transcripts, graduation ceremony and senior activities. We will have graduations for all of our MUSD seniors and adult students in some capacity as we are determined to find a way to celebrate this milestone in our learners’ pathways to their future careers. More information on our programs during the Shelter in Place can be viewed with these links:
We understand this can be a difficult time for everyone, so we’d like to also share some resources to nurture Social-Emotional Wellness. Please be safe, take care of yourself and your loved ones, and know WE will make it through this challenging time Together as One. WE are MUSD Family and Community.
In unity, Office of the Superintendent
Governor waives state testing requirement for 2019-20
With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic forcing school closures throughout the state and across the country, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order today suspending the state testing requirement for 2019-20.
The executive order states: “It is hereby ordered that Education Code section 6064 (a), requiring that all pupils be administered academic assessments in mathematics, English language arts, and science, as provided for in Education Code section 60640, is waived for the 2019-20 school year for all schools in the state for which the United States Department of Education approves, based on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students and school communities throughout California, a federal waiver of requirements to administer those academic assessments.”
This news allows us to focus on providing our students with the best learning opportunities we can within our MUSD Educate Everywhere program.
