Today is the last day of spring semester classes for LA Unified, and for thousands of students it means summer is finally here. For teachers, it also is the start of vacation, and tomorrow they will get their first fat paycheck including a long-awaited raise and backpay that is due as the result of their new contract.

LA School Report will still be reporting all the important education and LA Unified news over the summer, as there will be plenty of important district news happening, not the least of which will be the school board debating and voting on a new budget.

Here are some key dates coming up over the summer:

June 9
LA Unified school board meeting

June 11
Budget, Facilities, Audit Committee meeting
Early Childhood Education and Parent Engagement Ad Hoc Committee

June 15
Summer school sessions begin

June 16
Committee of the Whole meeting
Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Committee

* Two more school board meetings are likely to be scheduled to discuss budget issues in June, with the final meeting and vote expected to take place on June 23.

There will be more school board meetings, but exact dates have not yet been scheduled or posted to the LAUSD website. July will mark the beginning of a new fiscal year, as well as the swearing in of two new school board members, Ref Rodriguez and Scott Schmerelson.

August 18
Classes begin again at LA Unified for the 2015-16 school year.
