After months of vocal lobbying by well-organized groups of teachers and parents, the Long Beach Unified School District is trying to get a citywide perspective on when and how campuses should reopen during the coronavirus pandemic.
The founders of the two largest groups, Parents For Teachers LBUSD and Reopen Long Beach Schools, said Facebook has provided them with tools they would never otherwise have had, but also acknowledged the limitations and challenges of social media.
A pesar de que el Departamento de Salud de Long Beach anunció más temprano ese día que comenzarían a aceptar y procesar solicitudes de las escuelas, es probable que el distrito no aproveche la oportunidad.
Boardmember Megan Kerr said she’s hoping the district can convert some of the unused properties into affordable housing, something the city is lacking—which former Superintendent Chris Steinhauser cited as one of the reasons the district is declining in enrollment.
Long Beach Unified Board of Education members on Wednesday criticized a new waiver process that allows them to apply to reopen campuses to students who are in second grade and below.

The district has had several Blue Ribbon award-winners in previous years, but it’s the first award for both Kettering (a K-5 school) and Tincher (K-8).
