Los Angeles public schools will start on August 18, according to LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner. But the district hasn’t decided if classes will be online or in person. In the meantime, graduation will take place virtually, summer school will be expanded for students having trouble distance-learning, and teachers will undergo more training to teach online.
