Dear LAPS Parents and Families,

Public Education Department Announcement 3-27-2020

PED Frequently Asked Questions, School Closure

This information tracks closely with what I sent yesterday about our plan called innovative LA learning.

Today, we are working on a special message for high school students.  Finding a way to recognize and honor the class of 2020 is one of our priority projects right now.

Next week, we will be: 1) developing additional learning strategies and rolling-out details, 2) providing professional development for staff, 3) developing additional communications, 4) beginning one-on-one checking in with students and families and 5) distributing learning packets and computing devices to parents, as needed.

Dr. Kurt Steinhaus
