Debra Duardo, M.S.W., Ed.D.
Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools
I'm very pleased that the LA County Board of Supervisors passed a motion on July 21 aimed at providing additional resources for students and families during campus closures.
Several county departments, including Parks & Recreation and Public Libraries, will develop a plan for how to use their facilities to support students with distance learning.
LACOE has joined the county teams in developing their plans. We are advocating that priority be given to our students with the greatest need and who lack access to technology: low-income students, students with disabilities, foster youth and others.
We look forward to helping interested districts partner with the county to provide additional supports for your students and families.
