LAUSD School Reopenings Will Happen In Phases, From Youngest To Oldest Students
Whenever L.A. Unified School District campuses are allowed to reopen in Los Angeles, they won't open all at once.
During his weekly update Monday, Superintendent Austin Beutner said the district will reopen schools in three phases:
"The current thinking is we'll start with Early Education Centers and elementary schools over the course of the first week when it's safe and appropriate to do so, middle schools the next week, and high schools the week after. All students and staff returning to schools will need to receive COVID tests sometime the week prior to their school reopening."
Last Friday, the district announced it had reached a tentative agreement on reopening protocols with the union that represents principals and administrators.
The LAUSD Board of Education has to approve that deal. Negotiations with the teachers' union are continuing.
