Our schools and communities — historically underfunded and disproportionately impacted by the pandemic — need a comprehensive plan for pandemic recovery and beyond.
The Beyond Recovery platform, developed by UTLA educators, parents, and community allies over months of meetings and dialogue, addresses the urgent needs of our students at a time when historic levels of funding are coming to school districts.
The district projects it will be sitting on nearly $5 billion dollars in reserves by the end of the 2022-2023 school year — a rare and crucial opportunity to make investments that ensure our neighborhood public schools meet the unique needs of students, families, and educators in each community.
In Spring 2022, UTLA educators brought the Beyond Recovery platform into negotiations with the school district. This is a pivotal time when educators standing with parents and the community can collectively fight to transform public education in LA.
