The Lompoc Unified School District is launching two new programs to help support students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a LUSD press release, the school is going to be providing two bilingual teachers to provide after-school support from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

They will be able to assist with “schoolwork, assessing technology and social-emotional needs.”

The school also said in the release they will be offering Saturday school via Zoom for students, taught by various LUSD teachers.

LUSD said this is meant to provide an opportunity for students to catch up who missed class, or additional time to learn.

“Our goal is to ensure that by the end of this school year students are at grade level and the difficulties of distance learning will not negatively impact students,” Assistant Superintendent of Business John Karbula said in the release. “One of our objectives has been to identify ways to mitigate learning loss that students may have experienced. We are excited to be able to fund these opportunities for our students.”
