Forty thousand high school students in the Los Angeles Unified School District are at risk of not graduating - including 6,000 this year - according to a new analysis that tracks the effects of school closures on students in the nation's second largest district.

In middle school, about a third of students in the district are currently on grade level in reading and math. Some of the worst learning loss was found in the early grades, where reading skills declined the most in kindergarten and first grade compared to the 2019-20 school year.

With the district preparing to reopen in two weeks, the report, from advocacy group Great Public Schools Now, shows engagement in remote classes has sharply increased since the beginning of the pandemic. But even with that improvement, more than a third of middle and high school students weren't actively participating in online work last fall, the report found.
