The decision to close LUSD schools for the remainder of this week is particularly impactful to secondary schools. After consideration of multiple factors, the district has decided that secondary students will not be required to take final exams for any class for this Fall Semester. This will relieve the stress and anxiety associated with an extended final period and allow our Spring Semester to commence as planned. Resultantly, the following decisions have been made:
any plans for administration of Fall Semester finals are cancelled,
the Fall Semester grading window will remain open through January 10th,
any assignments/projects that were due this week will be accepted until January 10th,
official sports and extracurricular eligibility lists will be posted on January 15th,
students who are currently ineligible for sports or extracurricular activities due to academics will remain ineligible until January 15th.
This solution, although far from perfect, will result in no student being penalized because of the current situation that is beyond their control. Best wishes to all students and families for a safe Winter Break and we look forward to resuming school on January 8th.
LUSD has established a uniform complaint procedure (1312.3) for all relevant programs per 5 CCR § 4622 et seq . The district has a policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of gender per Education Amendments of 1972, Title IX: Nondiscrimination.
