An Open Letter to Austin Beutner

Are we ready for COVID19?


Dear Mr. Beutner:

The journalists for the Bell Chimes are sending you this open letter in the hopes of you answering a few questions. 

First, thank you for the recent phone call to the people within LAUSD notifying everyone there are no cases of COVID19 so far in the district. 

However, do you or LAUSD have a plan ready in the case of a possible COVID19 outbreak in any of the schools within the district? Why have you not mentioned any specifics? 

Second, what is your opinion on China being able to move 181 million students to online learning after their schools shut down? 

Do you believe LAUSD can do the same? Why or why not? 

We sincerely thank you for taking your time to answer our questions.

The Bell Chimes
