The COVID-19 pandemic could cost San Diego Unified School District $71 million — $19 million for the rest of this school year and up to $52 million for summer school, to make up for learning lost during school closures, according to new district estimates.

A recent statewide poll of parents by the Education Trust-West found that 46 percent of San Diego parents surveyed had not been contacted by their teacher since schools physically closed, and 71 percent lack the resources they need to keep their children academically on track.
