Stage 4 - Traditional Learning
FUSD will begin the 2021-2022 school year in Stage 4
Under Stage 4, school sites would be opened for regular operations. At this stage, the risk of COVID-19 exposure has been minimized to a controllable level. Teachers, staff, and students would be permitted on campus for regular full-day school schedules. Safety protocols may be adjusted to reflect minimized risk. Students would receive instruction in-person under the Traditional 5-days-a-week model.
How it Works:
When we reach Stage 4, the Flexible Learning Program Traditional Model will be implemented. This model is the closest to our traditional way of instruction. Students will receive 5 day per week in-person instruction at school. Some school sponsored gatherings may be allowed. Extracurricular activities such as sports and band may be available at this level.
Some safety measures may continue to be followed to mitigate any remaining risk of COVID-19.

Alternative Learning Options:
New to the Fontana Unified School District this school year is the ACCESS (Actively, Creating, Connections, Ensuring, Student Success) program. ACCESS is meant to meet the needs of students seeking to remain in an online learning environment but needing a higher level of teacher support. It is an Independent Study program that offers live, synchronous instruction in a digital classroom. Students in the ACCESS program will mirror a traditional school day and are expected to be actively engaged online during the program hours five days a week.
All students in grades K-12 are eligible for the ACCESS program, including English Learners and Students with Disabilities. Necessary accommodations will be discussed upon enrollment. Regarding our Students with Disabilities, an Individual Education Program (IEP) meeting will be held to review the student’s provision of a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) prior to enrolling to determine the appropriate placement options.
If you are interested in enrolling in the ACCESS program, please fill out an Intra District Transfer. Transfers are submitted online at https://forms.office.com/r/dL8CXYiNsX District staff will be in contact upon receipt to discuss in further detail policies and expectations of the program.
Virtual Learning Program (VLP):
VLP is geared towards meeting the needs of students that are self-guided, independent learners. Students enrolled in VLP will still be part of their home school, meaning they will continue to be able to participate in athletics and other student activities. Students who are a part of the VLP can take all or some of their classes online. For more information on VLP, please visit www.fusd.net/VLP or call (909) 357-5000 EXT 29577.
