The Los Angeles teacher's union and LAUSD have reached a tentative agreement about rules for instruction for the coming fall school year. 

Although all campuses will remain closed, according to the agreement, the students will have virtual learning with a schedule that reflects a regular school day. 

After a marathon weekend of bargaining, UTLA and LAUSD reached a tentative agreement late tonight on crisis distance learning for 2020-21.The agreement is tentative, pending a vote of UTLA members and the LAUSD School Board. More details on the voting timeline tomorrow.

The union was unequivocally opposed to having LAUSD teachers hold the online-only classes from their classrooms. 

Monday afternoon should offer more details, but the pact, in essence, resolves a huge obstacle for teachers and parent, anxious about how the learning was going to happen as the Aug. 18 school year start fast-approaches. 

A vote will be made with the union's membership and the school board is set to meet Tuesday.
