Reporter Roundup for August 18

Back to School Edition | August 18

On the August 18 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC education reporters talk about what we can expect for the new school year amid the pandemic. 

Kyle Stokes brings us up to speed on the Los Angeles Unified School District’s plan on the first day of a new academic year. 

School districts around Southern California have provided millions of healthy meals to children for free since the pandemic started. Carla Javier explains why this could change.  

Cal State students have a new requirement under a law signed this week by Gov. Gavin Newsom. Adolfo Guzman-Lopez has been following that story. 

Mariana Dale shares how early education administrators hope to implement social-emotional learning techniques for preschool and transitional kindergarten students in the fall.
