Millville School Update 5/24/20
Hello Millville Parents,
As you are all aware we are experiencing an odd time in our lives; the duration of this time is anyone's guess. As the unknown is a bigger place than the known, schools are considering all possible scenarios for next year. The scenarios include returning to school full time, having staggered start times, alternating attendance days and even starting school with partial grades. Everyone's hope is that we can return to school in August full time, but it remains to be determined.
In order to establish a plan for next school year, we have to wait for guidance from the California Department of Education, California Public Health and Shasta County Public Health regarding what will be required of schools in order to open in August. Once we have concrete and specific recommendations and requirements, we will post them on our website and will begin putting a plan in place to reopen next school year.
I've added some links on this website to articles that cover a variety of recommendations for schools from the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, as well as some articles on how schools could look come the new school year and how schools are opening in other countries.
School as we've known it may look different next school year, but please know that Millville School will implement whatever guidelines are required of us with the best interest of our students' health, education and well being as our first priority.
Until we see you again, stay well and stay hopeful.

California School Dashboard
Teachers use more than just test scores to determine how well a student is doing, because test scores alone don’t tell the whole story. And the same is true for schools – test scores are only part of a bigger picture of school success. That’s why the California School Dashboard contains a range of easy-to-use, color-coded gauges designed to give families a complete picture of a school or district. The Dashboard includes meaningful data on graduation rates, college/career readiness, attendance, English learner progress, suspensions and more. The state has created several videos – translated into Spanish – to help you learn about the Dashboard and how to use it. Find them on the California Department of Education’s YouTube channel!
