Through SB 98, the state also requires districts to use a landmark assessment this year to measure student learning, and the district has selected DIBELS/TRC as an evaluation for ELA. The UTLA Working Group on Distance Education is currently opposed to the borough with additional assessments that are required outside the requirements required to meet SB 98 requirements. Teachers should continue the DIBELS or TRC assessment and speak to administrators in case of time conflicts with ELPAC. The DIBELS/TRC assessment should be administered in small groups during teaching. The agreement will then be submitted to the LAUSD School Board for a vote and a vote by UTLA members next week. If the agreement is ratified by UTLA members, it will remain in effect until December 31, 2020 or until students physically return to LAUSD schools for regular education. UTLA and LAUSD will continue to negotiate the conditions necessary for the physical reopening of schools. Some highlights of your: FAQ: Negotiations on a possible return This week, more than 700 chapter leaders from across the city participated in our webinar to discuss the health metrics of the community to achieve for a physical return to school. This week, meetings will be held in the chapters where colleagues can discuss the measures and general negotiations. A physical return to schools is not imminent and there is no timetable for a return.
UTLA and the District have consistently said that the timing of a physical return must be based on science. Currently, with COVID cases on the rise, no one is pressing the accelerator. Answers to some general problems can be find in the BARGAINING UPDATES FAQ section on the « Learn Frequently » page. We advise you to review the UTLA webinar or check the PowerPoint in detail on the community`s scientifically proven health metrics for a safe return and the necessary elements of an agreement for possible physical return. At its September 14 meeting, the UTLA House of Representatives approved the alternative letter agreement with LAUSD on health benefits. This agreement gives non-Medicare workers and retirees more choice when enrolling in health plans. Closure of the voluntary service: this week, LAUSD decided to stop all school and child care services from 10 December to 11 January at least. This has been a blow to the many in-person services that have taken place on school sites, but it is a smart step in the face of the acceleration of COVID-19 figures, and we agree with that decision.
