The La Jolla Cluster Association (LJCA) is a 501(c)3 organization made up of parents, teachers, and principals from the five La Jolla public schools. Our goal is to promote and support excellence in education in all La Jolla public schools. The LJCA works collaboratively to meet the needs of our diverse student population in grades TK-12 by implementing community based school reform in collaboration with SDUSD. Cluster board meetings are held every month and are open to all stakeholders.

Safe Schools During
COVID19 in 2022/2023
As we start the 2022-23 school year, indoor masking will not be required but rather will be strongly recommended at all schools and workplaces, regardless of CDC COVID-19 community level.
During the school year, the district will follow a focused approach and decisions to require indoor masking at individual school sites will be based on the following:
Within the past 14 days, at least three outbreaks have occurred in the school, AND more than 5% of the school population (students and staff) is infected. Individual schools will resume required masking indoors for a minimum of a 14-day period when this metric is reached.
Utilizing the individual school focused approach, the district will not make districtwide masking decisions.
On Tuesday, May 24, the Board of Education approved an amendment to postpone the District’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for students and align with the State to implement the mandate no sooner than July 2023.
This means there will be no requirement for COVID-19 vaccination for any student group to participate in in-person instruction or extracurricular programs (including athletics) during the 2022-2023 school year.
We encourage all eligible students to be vaccinated as well, and all members of the school community to receive any boosters for which they are eligible.

The Impact of Social and Emotional Learning on Key Student Outcomes
Recent trends in education have created a focus in districts and schools on improving their students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) skills, and many educators are aware of the impact these skills have on student success.
