CHULA VISTA, Calif. — Chula Vista Elementary School District said a “Chula Vista Elementary” was mistakenly listed on the County of San Diego website as an applicant for a school reopening waiver.
In a Facebook post, the South Bay school district said the mistake came after a local independent charter school selected the district’s name on the county application site instead of its own. CVESD has not applied for a waiver to reopen for in-person instruction, district officials said.
Before making such a decision, the district said it first would require consulting labor units, parents and community organizations.
“The San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency informed our District on Friday, August 21, 2020 of this error and have since corrected their website,” the district said.
The district will begin its 2020-2021 school year on Aug. 31 in a distance learning format.
