The Los Angeles Unified School District (“District”) and United Teachers Los Angeles (“UTLA”) agree to the terms of this Sideletter Agreement (“AGREEMENT”) regarding school closures during the 2019-2020 school year in response to the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Parties recognize there is a need to close schools and move to an online/distance learning program to allow for social distancing as recommended by public health officials in order to prevent the spread of illness arising from COVID-19 during the 2019-2020 school year. It is understood by the parties that in our endeavors to implement distance learning, flexibility for all will be crucial. At this moment, we will all need to model resilience, critical and creative thinking, and empathy to ensure that students continue to grow personally and academically.Has the UFT negotiated something similar?
