Templeton schools to explore strategies for ‘restoring traditional school experience’ 

templeton eagles logo with img–In their vision for the fall semester, Templeton Unified School District says it seeks to create opportunities that focus on “academic, emotional, social and physical development and restore the traditional school experience to the greatest extent possible.”

At Thursday’s School Board meeting, Superintendent Asplund facilitated an initial exploration of strategies to address the vision for the fall of 2021. Administrators, educators, and parents came together with a shared goal to restore the traditional daily in-person school experience to the greatest extent possible.

A culmination of months of discussion with community stakeholders was presented with the board ultimately committing to open schools to the fullest extent possible while following the guidelines of county and state regulators.

“Our priority is to get out of this mode and to do so safely,” said Jan Nimick, School Board Trustee.

Dialogue centered around a multi-dimensional view of safety and wellness for students’ physical health, with equal consideration of how to strengthen and protect social and emotional wellness. Added academic supports will augment enrichment activities, athletics, performing arts – all those complementary activities associated with whole-child development.

Recognizing the diverse needs and perspectives of families, the district aims to provide daily in-person learning, distance learning, and homeschool opportunities for K-12 in the fall.

Throughout the evening, Superintendent Asplund illustrated an ambitious, yet realistic outlook for the coming months. “We will no doubt be challenged by regulatory guidelines and forces outside of our control throughout the planning process,” he said.

“Regardless, will do everything within the bounds of these regulations to get students back to school and maximize their opportunities.”

Solutions-oriented community members were asked to participate in future workgroups, community forums, and surveys being asked to rise to the occasion and even “soar to great heights” in true Eagle Pride fashion. Workgroups and forums will have an informational nature with an added focus on ideas, workarounds, and creative solutions.

Templeton is currently enrolling students for fall 2021-22. To find out more visit or call (805) 434.5805.
