Utla Agreement

LOS ANGELES – UTLA and LAUSD reached an interim agreement on Sunday night that addresses UTLA`s top priorities for protecting the health and safety of staff and students. Bridging the digital divide by intelligently launching during the school year and promoting technology; Strengthening distance education in times of crisis to maintain the daily life of the school; Extending socio-emotional support during this period of trauma; and to ensure the discretion and flexibility of educators by recognizing the unprecedented circumstances in which we live. An interim agreement between LAUSD and the teachers` agreement would offer students three to four hours of live lessons per day, but some parents expressed concern. (CBSLA) The Los Angeles Unified School District and associate administrators in Los Angeles have reached an agreement on how to bring students and staff back to campus for private classes, one of the agreements negotiated by the District with its employee groups. Under the agreement that the school board has not yet signed, the agents would receive a $1,000 grant for work related to the reopening of the planning. This means that all staff and students are tested on COVID-19 before returning to school and that the campus is prepared to maintain standards of social engagement. “This agreement is given by educators, students and parents. This agreement is not an end point – it is a start,” said Cecily Myart-Cruz, president of UTLA. We need to invest more resources to create safe and healthy schools and build on this agreement to respond to the responses of educators, parents and students.

“When LAUSD`s school campuses were closed in March, educators, parents and students had to adapt to an emergency moment in a matter of days. This time, it was important to rethink the challenges and take into account feedback from this experience – using information from consultation with parents and members and feedback from members – which is reflected in this final agreement,” said Arlene Inouye, co-chair of the UTLA negotiating organization.
