LA County Guidelines For Reopening Head Start: Fewer, Smaller Classes
L.A. County’s Office Of Education has released new guidelines for reopening Head Start programs, but it's not clear when that will happen.
The agency, which oversees Head Start for 11,000 kids, closed its centers in March, and since then has been providing some virtual instruction.
The hope was to open 50% of classrooms by September, but that plan is being re-evaluated given the rising number of coronavirus cases, said County Head Start Executive Director Keesha Woods.
If centers reopen, it will be with smaller groups of children and daily health checks. Students with disabilities and four-year-olds will be prioritized for in-person instruction. For all other kids, remote learning will continue.
The federal program provides early education for low-income kids under 5.
