The board of the L.A. Unified School District voted unanimously to approve a resolution authorizing Supt. Austin Beutner "to take any and all actions necessary" to keep the nation's second largest school system running during the coronavirus outbreak.

Those actions include entering into no-bid contracts for relocations of students and staff, supplying food, buying equipment for remote learning, and hiring nurses, among other emergency needs.
