Students in Los Angeles Unified should be able to return to all-day, in-person instruction in the fall, assuming schedules are adjusted, more people in the community get vaccinated and the level of coronavirus infections continue to drop, Superintendent Austin Beutner said Monday, April 26.
As the district’s secondary students prepare to head back to classrooms this week — the first time in more than a year — Beutner acknowledged that middle and high schoolers won’t receive in-person instruction in most of their classes under a school day scenario that has been widely criticized by parents.
But he defended the decision to have students remain in their advisory classroom all day for the time being, noting that if they were to travel to all six or seven of their classes as they would under normal circumstances, they would come in contact with approximately 250 people, even if class sizes were smaller. A single person with the coronavirus could end up infecting many more, the superintendent said.
