    DVUSD Return to School Model Selection


    July 9, 2020

    DVUSD Families,

    Following a review of the Executive Order from Governor Ducey and guidance from our Governing Board and district leadership, Deer Valley Unified School District will begin school on August 3rd with virtual learning for all students.

    DVUSD is proud to offer three learning options for our students. We are asking families to choose from one of the three following learning options. 

    • Return to Learning On Campus* 
    • Return to Learning On Flex**
    • Return to Learning Online***

    *On Campus students will be instructed remotely from August 3rd until at least August 17th as we await instructions from Governor Ducey.

    **If school closure, due to the pandemic, is extended significantly past August 17th, On Flex students will begin the school year virtually with their On Campus teacher(s) until schools are able to open and return in person and the On Flex model begins.

    **When the On Flex option begins, students will be assigned to a teacher affiliated with the campus the student would normally attend. If a teacher from that campus is not available, a student will be assigned another On Flex teacher who will keep the same scope and sequence for each content area. Please review the overview on the Return to Learning website below regarding time frame expectations for this learning option.

    ***Students choosing the Deer Valley Online Academy will commit to online learning for the semester or school year and will need to complete additional paperwork to enroll in the Deer Valley Online Academy program.


    1) First, we ask that each family reviews the learning options that are outlined below.

    2) Next, we ask that all parents and families officially select their learning option for their child(ren) between July 9th and July 17th. We appreciate you making your selection during this time frame. Your selection indicates where your child(ren) will begin the school year. Please click the 'Select Model Here' button below:

    3) If you have multiple students attending DVUSD schools, you will be able to complete this enrollment process multiple times.  


    Students will begin the year on August 3rd in whichever learning option the family chooses to provide continuity for students with the same teacher(s). 

    If you have any questions regarding these learning models, please email returntolearning@dvusd.org
