72,000 kids show up at LAUSD to reverse their years of learning loss

Under Superintendent Carvalho’s ‘acceleration days’ students flock to 300 schools during holiday break

Winter break was delayed today for thousands of Los Angeles Unified School District students who enrolled in the district’s first “acceleration day” designed to help students recover learning lost during the pandemic.

Roughly 72,000 LAUSD students signed up for the acceleration classes scheduled for Monday and Tuesday at about 300 campuses across the district. Two more acceleration days are scheduled during the district’s spring break.

Superintendent Alberto Carvalho had initially announced that the four additional instructional days would be held during the regular school year, which would then end four days later than usual.

District employees who work for the acceleration days during the breaks will be paid.
