The agreement will then be submitted to the LAUSD School Board for a vote and a vote by UTLA members next week. If the agreement is ratified by UTLA members, it will remain in effect until December 31, 2020 or until students physically return to LAUSD schools for regular education. UTLA and LAUSD will continue to negotiate the conditions necessary for the physical reopening of schools. Some highlights of the TA: California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on July 17 that public and private schools in all California counties on the state`s coronavirus watch list – including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura – will begin the fall semester remotely only because of the increase in coronavirus cases. 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. Cecily Myart-Cruz, president of United Teachers Los Angeles, said in her weekly message to union members on Friday that utLA continued to meet with district officials to discuss returning to school. While district officials said January would be the earliest that LAUSD would require for a general reopening of schools, “that doesn`t mean January is safe,” she warned. Since the beginning of the pandemic, UTLA has prioritized the health and safety of students, families and communities during the closure of the school campus.
An important part of these measures was the consistent requirement for a rigorous testing and monitoring program. LAUSD did the right thing and responded with a test program accessible to our students and our communities, and school nurses are needed to make the program work. Although district officials were concerned that schools would reopen in January, if possible, no plan has been drawn up as the district continues to negotiate with the teachers` union and other workers` groups and continues to monitor the current increase in coronavirus cases. 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. Last week, UTLA said it had refused a LAUSD PROPOSAL to order its teachers in virtually empty classrooms when the school year resumes the week of August 17. It is not clear how this was implemented in the new agreement. The agreement will then be submitted to the LAUSD School Board for voting and voting by UTLA members next week.
If the agreement is ratified by UTLA members, it will remain in effect until 31 December 2020 or until the physical return of students to LAUSD schools for regular training. UTLA and LAUSD will continue to negotiate the conditions necessary for the physical reopening of schools. Some TA highlights: The Los Angeles District`s Unified School District and the Los Angeles Teachers` negotiating team got the deal late Sunday night after a marathon weekend bargaining session, UTLA reported on social media. The agreement expires on June 30, 2020, or schools open, depending on what happens first.
