Glendale Unified Board of Education Commits to Full Return to In-Person Learning for the 2021-22 School Year


GLENDALE, CA – The Glendale Unified Board of Education unanimously adopted a resolution committing to return all students to in-person learning for the 2021-22 school year at their meeting on May 18. The District will resume full on-campus instruction beginning with the first day of school on August 18.    

Glendale Unified offered on-campus child care in Technology Learning Pods, athletics, and expanded learning opportunities throughout the 2020-21 school year, and pivoted to in-person hybrid learning on March 29 for elementary grades and April 26 for middle and high school. The District plans to offer in-person expanded learning and enrichment opportunities for students throughout the summer.

“Based on the significant strides we have made across Los Angeles County with vaccinations and slowing the spread of COVID-19, we are excited to safely welcome all of our students back to campus for the 2021-22 school year,” said Glendale Unified Board of Education President Shant Sahakian. “In-person learning has proven to be the most effective form of learning for a majority of students to excel academically while developing socially and emotionally.”

“As conditions across Los Angeles County continue to improve, and based on our successful implementation of on-campus Technology Learning Pods and hybrid instruction this year, we are confident our health and safety measures are effective and eager to safely return all students for in-person learning this August,” said Glendale Unified Superintendent Dr. Vivian Ekchian.
