High Schools

The Vista Unified High School Instructional Sprint Team, which is comprised of a diverse cross-section of teachers and administrators from all six Vista Unified high schools, created its recommendations for Fall 2020 based on a single guiding principle: to create meaningful and relevant learning opportunities for all students regardless of the learning environment. The Sprint Team worked to establish key concepts and best practices--our “posts and rails”--to guide our instructional practice in any instructional model (classic or virtual) that will be in place in August.  Our recommendations are grouped into six overarching categories:  maintaining high expectations for all students, communication between all stakeholders, assessment, targeted feedback on student work, student support, and expectations for “live” instruction and collaboration
