LA School District Offered Parents This Online Learning Hybrid As Alternative To Reopened Classrooms. Thus Far LB Schools Won't...Unless LB School Bd Votes To Do So
|(Aug. 14, 2021, 5:10 a.m.) -- The Los Angeles Unified School District offered parents the following online learning hybrid as an alternative to reopened classrooms:
As previously reported by LBREPORT.com, in an Aug. 12 webcast LBUSD Deputy Superintendent Dr. Tiffany Brown Ed.D, stated that LBUSD staff doesn't plan to offer an online learning option to parents who don't want to put their children in classrooms with students and possibly teachers who are unvaccinated or of unknown vaccination status.
Tiffany Brown: [I]ndependent study is the option that is available for a family that chooses for their child to not come to in-person instruction, We're not planning for an online program right now...The thing that would cause us to provide an online program would be if we needed to have a closure. So while we have a plan in place should we need to do that I want to be clear that we're not planning for a virtual option in lieu of in-person instruction this year.
As matter of basic civics, non-elected LBUSD staff (including Sup't Jill Baker, Deputy Sup't Tiffany Brown et al.) don't set LBUSD policy. LBUSD's elected School Board members set policy.
And on Aug. 17, the School Board has scheduled a special meeting at which it will publicly receive, discuss and can make motions on a "School Opening Update" regarding Independent Study (12:30 p.m.)
The Aug. 17 School Board meeting to discuss these policy matters comes a day AFTER LBUSD management will hold an Aug. 16 online webinar to tell the public how management plans to handle reopening and an "independent study" option.
Will LB's elected School Boardmembers -- who have the final policy-making authority -- vote to direct LBUSD management to offer LB parents at minimum what LAUSD offered LA parents?
