Lausd Agreement

by admin on April 10th, 2021

The Los Angeles Unified School District and associate administrators in Los Angeles have reached an agreement on how to bring students and staff back to campus for private lessons, one of the agreements the district has negotiated with its employee groups. After a troubled and uneven spring of distance education, Los Angeles schools will reopen in two weeks with a major reboot of home learning, including a structured schedule, mandatory attendance requirement and an increase in online time with teachers and counselors as part of an interim agreement between the teachers` union and the district. The agreement would be in effect until December or until the campuses reopen. Negotiations on how to proceed with the re-opening of campuses are continuing. Another provision of the six-page agreement would limit a screen session for kindergarten children to a maximum of 45 minutes. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, there is no timetable for full campus opening. The agreement announced Friday contains safety guidelines for student return, citing a “hybrid model” combining online education and staff and students limited to “small, stable cohorts on campus.” LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The Los Angeles Unified School District announced Friday that it has reached an interim agreement on reopening protocols with the union representing principals and administrators. The agreement contains provisions requiring all students and staff to be tested on COVID-19 before returning to campus, as well as school safety protocols, including face masks, social renunciation and grouping of students into small cohorts. Before the agreement can be implemented, it must be approved by the Education Board. Under the agreement that the school board has yet to sign, trustees would receive a $1,000 grant for work related to re-opening planning. This includes ensuring that all employees and students are tested on COVID-19 before returning to school and preparing the campus to maintain social engagement standards.

The more structured minimum 30-hour week is the opposite of an April agreement, with no schedule and a minimum 20-hour week for teachers, although many have gone far beyond that. Similar agreements, which define the amount of online education online and the setting of consistent schedules for families, are being developed throughout the state and nation.
