Los Angeles Unified School District (“LAUSD”) is scheduled to open schools for in person learning this fall. However, an online option will be available for families with medical, social-emotional, or other concerns, as well as students receiving special education.
Students will receive daily live online instruction for part of the day and complete independent work during the remaining time. The program is run through LAUSD’s City of Angels School. The deadline to register for the online option is July 30, 2021. According to KPCC/LAist reporter Kyle Stokes, enrollment will “will default into full-time, on-campus instruction” if students aren’t registered for online instruction by the deadline.
Parents can register online through LAUSD’s Parent Portal, by calling at (323) 415-8350, or by visiting the City of Angels website at www.cityofangelsschool.org
LAUSD has posted a “Welcome Back to School Family Guide” in English and Spanish, a FAQ with answers for online learning, and a short video addressing questions. According to LAUSD’s Dr. Vince Carbino in the video, it may be possible to switch between in-person and online after the deadline, but there are concerns that a student’s learning will be disrupted because the programs have different teachers and different lessons.
Many thanks to Parents Supporting Teachers for pointing out the FAQ link.
