LAUSD: Student attendance, COVID-19 test-positivity rates improving

Four weeks into the new semester, the nation’s second-largest school district is seeing an improvement in student attendance and COVID-19 test-positivity rates, which isn’t surprising given the overall improving conditions throughout Los Angeles County.

In-person student attendance rose to 87% on Friday, Feb. 4, according to preliminary data, the Los Angeles Unified School District reported. It was about 66% the first week back after winter break, 75% the second week and nearly 80% on Jan. 24. The figures do not include students in City of Angels, the district’s online independent study program.

The district’s cumulative student attendance rate, which is a weighted average, typically is about 90%.

COVID-19 test-positivity rates are also improving, with a seven-day positivity rate of 3.2% among staff and students as of Thursday, according to the district’s COVID-19 dashboard. The week before second semester began on Jan. 11, when students and staff underwent baseline testing, the percentage testing positive was 16.5%. That dropped to 9.8% the first week of school and has been steadily declining.
