Los Angeles schools could reopen starting in April under deal with teachers
Los Angeles students are a critical step closer to a return to campus beginning in April under a tentative agreement reached between the teachers union and the L.A. Unified School District, signaling a new chapter in an unprecediented year of coronavirus-forced school closures.
The agreement, which must be ratified by members, establishes safety parameters for a return to campus and lays out a markedly different schedule that still relies heavily on online learning. The school day would unfold under a so-called hybrid format – meaning that students would conduct their studies on campus during part of the week and continue with their schooling online at other times.
Families would retain the option of keeping students in distance learning full time.
