According to the Los Angeles Times, students in Los Angeles County will not be allowed back into the classroom until at least November.
The Los Angeles Times listened in on a Thursday briefing with the county's public health director, Dr. Barbara Ferrer, finding that both the Los Angeles Unified School District (L.A.U.S.D) and the district's teacher's union, United Teachers Los Angeles, said they are opposed to reopening campuses at this time because of health concerns.
Therefore, no campus in Los Angeles County will be allowed to reopen to all K-12 students. Meanwhile, some schools in nearby Orange County have reopened as the area continues to improve most COVID-19 trends.
According to the Times, first, small groups can begin coming to campuses as soon as Monday and no approval from the county is required provided that schools attest that they are following required safety guidelines.The students who come back must be defined as having special needs. Top priority will be given to students with disabilities and students who are learning to speak English.
Join the conversation below. Tell us what you think about this move from L.A.U.S.D and the district's teacher's union.
