The new school year for students in the Los Angeles Unified School District is scheduled to start Aug. 18, the district confirmed Monday.

All schools in the nation’s second-largest school district have been closed since March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

More details about the planned start to the school year were expected when Superintendent Austin Beutner speaks Monday morning.

Beutner has called for a “robust” system of testing and contact tracing before schools could even begin reopening. Though details of what reopened schools would look like have not been provided, the return would be “a gradual process with a schedule and school day that may be different.”

Last month, Gov. Gavin Newsom said some California schools may start as early as July.
