LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The Los Angeles Unified School Board will vote Tuesday on an interim agreement with the union that represents teachers on how to conduct distance learning next week, with campuses closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. 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 teachers` union intends to have the agreement voted on next week. The school board, which is also expected to approve the pact, is due to meet on Tuesday and could address the issue. “When LAUSD`s school campuses closed in March, educators, parents and students had to adapt to an emergency moment in a matter of days. This time, it was important to reconsider the challenges and take into account feedback from this experience – using information from a consultation with parents and members and feedback from members – which is reflected in this final agreement,” said Arlene Inouye, co-chair of the UTLA negotiating organization. This agreement is given by educators, students and parents. This agreement is not an end point – it is a start,” said Cecily Myart-Cruz, president of UTLA. We need to invest more resources to create safe and healthy schools and build on this agreement, responding to the responses of educators, parents and students. A full text of the agreement can be found in UTLA.net. The agreement, reached late Sunday, requires daily live interaction with students, while expecting to report teachers to empty classrooms every day, which district negotiators retained during interviews on Thursday, July 30, according to Arlene Inouye, the union`s co-chair. LOS ANGELES (CBLA) – After weeks of negotiations, the country`s second-largest school district and its teachers have agreed on how to continue distance learning amid the coronavirus pandemic.
