Tentative Agreement Utla

An interim agreement between LAUSD and the teachers` agreement would offer students three to four hours of live lessons per day, but some parents expressed concern. (CBSLA) The Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles Teachers` negotiating team got the deal late Sunday night after a marathon weekend trading session, UTLA reported on social media. 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: the agreement will be followed by a more predictable learning plan for students, much like on a normal school day, although they do so remotely, as campuses remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Last week, UTLA said it rejected a PROPOSAL by LAUSD to order its teachers from virtually empty classrooms when the school year resumes the week of August 17. It is not clear how this was put in place in the new agreement. “This agreement is given by educators, students and parents. This agreement is not an end point – it is a start,” said Cecily Myart-Cruz, president of UTLA. We need to invest more resources to create safe and healthy schools and build on this agreement, responding to the responses of educators, parents and students. 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 in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. LOS ANGELES – The United Teachers Union Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Unified School District reached an interim agreement late Sunday evening on what is coming up for the 2020/21 school year when students return to school online. LOS ANGELES – UTLA and LAUSD reached an interim agreement on Sunday evening that meets UTLA`s top priorities for protecting the health and safety of staff and students.

Bridging the digital divide by “smart start” in the school year and promoting technology; Strengthening distance education in times of crisis to maintain the daily life of the school; Extending socio-emotional support during this period of trauma; and ensure the discretion and flexibility of educators by recognizing the unprecedented circumstances in which we live. In a briefing Monday morning, Beutner did not directly address the preliminary agreement. However, he reiterated that the number of coronavirus cases in L.A. County and the test rate will determine when students will be able to return to campus. L.A. County currently has a positivity rate of 8.3%. The school starts in Los Angeles in just a few weeks, and LAUSD has finally reached a preliminary agreement with the teachers` union on how to proceed with distance learning. The agreement is expected to be put to a vote by the school board on Tuesday, as well as a vote by union members next week. If approved, it will remain in effect until December 31 or until students are back on campus for personal education.
