Students Put Last In LA Teachers Proposed Agreement To ‘Reopen’ Schools?

An agreement has finally been reached between the United Teachers Los Angeles Union and the Los Angeles Unified School District for some type of in person learning. However the agreement that has been reached does not appear to bring students back to the classrooms on any type of full time basis.

The agreement is also contingent on certain guidelines being meant prior to teachers being willing to return to in person instruction.

Elementary students would return to school first while middle school and high school students will not be returning to school until at least the end of April.

Per the agreement, elementary students would only attend classes for half of the day. While middle school and high school students would only attend school two days a week. In addition middle school and high school students would be assigned a classroom that they would not be allowed to leave. The other major difference to in person schooling for middle school and high school students would be that their teacher would be teaching multiple classrooms at a time remotely.

Under the agreement, members of United Teachers Los Angeles, which represents teachers, nurses, counselors and librarians, would not have to return to work until they have had access to COVID-19 vaccinations and have achieved maximum immunity — a period of up to six weeks…The union has not signed off on a specific return date. Middle and high schools would open later in April or early in May, according to a district source who was not authorized to speak on the record…Middle and high schools would resume with even starker changes. Students would attend two days a week on a staggered schedule. But instead of moving from class to class, students would remain in their advisory classroom — similar to a homeroom base — for the full day. From their advisory class, students would carry out distance learning essentially as they are doing now; they would be trading online-from-home for online-from-a-classroom under the supervision of a teacher. Students would then “move” from class to class online — as they are doing now at home. Advisory teachers would have their own schedule of classes — which they would conduct from school, but not necessarily to the students in front of them. To avoid mutual distraction, students would be provided with noise-cancelling headsets. – Excerpt from agreement 

Under the proposed agreement the Los Angeles Unified School District will not be eligible for grant money under Governor Newsom’s reopening plan for schools which states that schools must be reopen by the end of March in order to receive funds. It will also make them one of the last school districts in the country to reopen.
