LAUSD students go back to school Aug. 16, but parents and teachers say that’s too soon

On Aug. 16, most students in the Los Angeles Unified School District will return to the classroom. But according to a survey of LAUSD parents and employees, summer fun doesn’t last long enough. The district conducted a phone survey in September 2015 to gauge what its employees and parents of students want future school calendars to look like. A majority of both parents and district employees were in favor of pushing the school year start date back into September — sometime after Labor Day.
