Non-elected LB Schools Supt Baker Says NO to Parents Seeking Digital Option To Reopened Classrooms, Will Offer Only "Independent Study" (With No Details Yet Announced). LB Policy Setting School Board: Zzzzzzz....
|(Aug. 3, 2021, 7:30 a.m.) -- In an Aug. 2 YouTube video, LB School Superintendent Jill Baker has reiterated a stance she previously implied in a July 26 video that LBUSD management will NOT offer parents the option of online video instruction if they don't want to put their children in classrooms with possibly unvaccinated children or check vaccination status for students and teachers.
"We will not be offering a hybrid program. We will be sharing information soon about our transitional Kindergarten through 12 grade independent study option for those families who do not want their students to return to in-person instruction," Dr. Baker said in her Aug. 2 video.
Sacramento's (Newsom administration) CA Dept. of Public Health, and LB's Health Dept. (city management run) haven't required student or teacher vaccinations or a check of their status prior to reopening. A majority of the elected policy-setting LB School Board can implement greater protections if it wishes.
The School board's next scheduled meeting is August 18 (preceded by an Aug. 17-18 workshop) with agendas not yet available.
The Brown Act allows a school board majority to schedule a special meeting on 24 hours notice to discuss and/or take action on an individual item.
CA Govt Code (Brown Act) 54956(a) states in pertinent part: "A special meeting may be called at any time by the presiding officer of the legislative body of a local agency, or by a majority of the members of the legislative body...The call and notice shall specify the time and place of the special meeting and the business to be transacted or discussed. No other business shall be considered at these meetings by the legislative body..."
