Residency Verification

The Irvine Unified School District will once again require residency verification for all IUSD students enrolling for the 2019-20 school year. This process is an annual legal requirement in California and it helps our district ensure that all available resources are spent efficiently and effectively to the benefit of our Irvine families. Moreover, these additional steps will help provide a full and precise accounting of our student population as we review staffing for the coming year.

By completing the following forms for each of your students, you will be making a formal declaration that your child lives within IUSD’s attendance boundaries.

School websites have electronic versions of the documents available as part of the residency verification process. Also, hard copies are available at the school site upon request. For your added convenience, the forms are also linked above and attached to this email, allowing you to fill them out and print them at home. Completed residency forms should be turned in to your child’s Homeroom teacher by March 29th. A list of acceptable documents included on the Residency Verification Form can also be found by clicking here.

For additional information, please contact the Sierra Vista Front Office.

Blended Learning

Blended learning is a 21st century learning environment where some of the learning takes place face-to-face in a school setting, and some of the learning takes place in an online environment. The online environment can be synchronous, meaning the students and teachers are interacting in a real-time environment (such as a live, online classroom, or through collaborative documents), or in an asynchronous environment, meaning students collaborate with peers, interact with multimedia content and submit assignments at various time during the school week.

Blended learning requires a high level of personal responsibility, as the learner must take the initiative to show mastery of learning and complete certain course objectives independently. It is important to know that while blended learning allow for some flexibility in terms of when and where assignments are completed, students must meet certain checkpoints and remain on pace throughout the semester. Students in blended learning are expected to show academic integrity and use technology responsibly for the purposes of education.

 

Students interested in the Blended Learning Program, please see the linked information packet. If you have questions or wish to register, please contact your middle school counselor
