LOS ANGELES (KABC) — After two days of remote online orientation, LAUSD began actual classes on Thursday as the coronavirus pandemic forces classrooms to remain empty.
LAUSD is providing devices and internet access to students in need, and free one-on-one tutoring will be provided to K-8 students outside of school hours. Families that have additional questions about available resources can contact the help center by calling (213) 443-1300.
But remote learning doesn’t mean being stuck at home for those students taking advantage of a learning center in Echo Park.
The Dream Center opened its learning center for students to come and take part in their remote classes. The center provides an outdoor space decked out with computers sitting atop distanced desks. In addition, the facility offers tutoring to students who need it.
Those with LAUSD-issued devices were seen in one section, and those using the Dream Center’s computers were seen in another.
