COVID-19 Response Task Force for the 2020-21 School Year



The purpose of the task force is to serve as a varied stakeholder advisory body that will develop the data driven planning assumptions and scenarios the district will adopt for its decision making moving forward in response to the evolving circumstances the pandemic imposes. In addition, the committee is designed to work collaboratively and productively using elements of NVUSD’s Interest Based Problem Solving approach.





The composition outlined below is based upon an analysis of the various dimensions of the planning that will need attention and consideration for implementation. We thank everyone in advance for understanding that we cannot have every group or classification represented as we aim to keep the task force a manageable size of approximately 30 participants. The task force is composed of the executive cabinet team and the following administrators, employee representatives and other key stakeholders:
