2009-2010 Summer School/Intersession Cancelled for Elementary and Middle Schools.

Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) officials announced that the 2009-2010 summer school/intersession for elementary and middle schools has been cancelled due to declining revenues and the current State budget deficit.

“This is a sad day for our students, our parents and families, and our school district,” said LAUSD Superintendent Ramon C. Cortines. “In all of my years in education, I have never seen budget news as bad as the number currently faced by this school district. As a result, I have made a difficult decision and I have announced the cancellation of this year’s summer school and intersession for elementary and middle school students.”

The District will offer summer school and intersession at the high school level for credit recovery (graduation requirements, core classes and A-G classes) only. The Extended School Year (ESY) Program, which serves eligible students with disabilities, will be offered this summer.

The number of school sites offering summer school will be reduced due to limited
District resources.

The cancellation of summer school/intersession is expected to impact more than 225,000 students in the District, saving LAUSD roughly $34 million.

After cutting $567 million from its budget, the District still must cut an additional $131 million in six weeks before the end of the current school year. LAUSD faces more than $336 million in new cuts for the 2009-2010 school year.
