Negotiations continue between LAUSD, teachers union on hybrid learning

Jan 25, 2021 by

Unclear if parties will reach agreement before Sunday’s self-imposed deadline, which could complicate matters as district contemplates applying for state grant to reopen schools.

The teachers union and representatives for the Los Angeles Unified School District had yet to reach agreements on providing services to high-needs students and a hybrid instructional model as of the afternoon on Friday, Jan. 22 — two days before their self-imposed deadline for coming to terms on these issues.

It’s unclear what the repercussions might be if the union and district are unable to reach agreements by Sunday, though the parties could mutually consent to extend the deadline.

Even if agreements are reached by this weekend, it would not mean that students would be back on campus right away, because the coronavirus infection rate remains too high in Los Angeles County, and teachers aren’t expected to be vaccinated before February.

Still, Superintendent Austin Beutner had said in December — when the parties agreed to the Jan. 24 deadline — that it’s important to finalize details as soon as possible to allow time for educators to plan and for families to make informed decisions about whether to send their children back to campus.
