Default Catholic schools open for cancelled LAUSD classes

LA Catholic schools to allow students to attend summer school classes

Posted by: PE News

Local Catholic schools will open their doors to Los Angeles Unified School District students whose summer classes were canceled due to the budget crisis, Cardinal Roger Mahony announced today.

However, Catholic schools will charge tuition for courses normally free at LAUSD schools.

The LAUSD is eliminating most summer school programs due to declining revenues and the state's budget deficit. The move — which could affect more than 225,000 students — is expected to save the district about $34 million.

Mahony said Catholic schools offer many of the same summer courses that would normally be provided by the LAUSD. He said the schools will try to negotiate easier payment terms with parents.

The archdiocese's superintendent of schools, Pat Livingston, offered assurances that the summer courses would focus on academics, not catechism.

The LAUSD plans to continue offering only summer school at the high school level for "credit recovery," meaning graduation requirements, core classes and A-G classes. The Extended School Year Program for students with disabilities will also be offered.

A list of Catholic schools offering summer classes is available online at www.archdiocese.la by clicking on "Summer School."

The alternatives seemed unacceptable. Children usually in summer school would be roaming the streets with incorrigibles. Parochial institutions will at least provide an option to parents wishing to keep their children enrolled and engaged during while they are at work. Parochial schools also offer some spiritual guidance, something conventional schools are often prevented from.
