Daze, the school that has become a symbol of American education, is shutting its doors for good.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the popular, free, public school in Pasadena will shut down on January 7, 2019, to be replaced by a new school that offers students more academic options.
Students at Daze are hoping to get a better education in 2019.
In 2017, the LA Times reported that the school had a student body of about 7,000 students, which is far smaller than most schools in the state.
But, in 2018, the newspaper reported that Daze was facing a $5 million budget shortfall, so its students had to choose between continuing to pay for school expenses and making a few more extra bucks to attend the nearby Los Angeles Unified School District.
Daze’s parent company, L.A. Public Schools, said that in 2019, it would not continue to pay teachers at the school, because it would no longer be able to provide for the school’s ongoing needs.
Dazed students, some of whom have struggled with drug use, are already living in a tent city, sleeping in a makeshift shelter in the school grounds.
They are also dealing with homelessness, according to the Times.
Dazing was a high school in the San Fernando Valley, located in Los Angeles, California.
It was founded in 1959, and served about 8,000 kids and adults, according the Los Angeles Times.
Today, it serves about 5,000 people.
As the LA Weekly reported in January 2019, Daze is the only public school district in the region that does not have its own school district.
It is the largest district in California and serves roughly 1.8 million students, according TOHO Education, a global education company that specialises in providing school systems with financial resources and information.
In addition to being a school district, Dazed also serves a special needs community.
The district offers free health care, food, and counseling, as well as mental health services and other support services for students with disabilities.
It also has a 24/7 Crisis Line.
Dazys founder, Michael Sussman, said in a statement to the LA Examiner that the district’s decision to close the school was based on an “unprecedented financial burden.”
“We are disappointed in the district for the decisions they made to close Daze,” he said.
“We will continue to work with our board to move forward with our vision to grow our school system to serve students with special needs in the future.”
Schools in Los Alamitos, Santa Ana, and Santa Barbara County also announced that they will close.
In Santa Ana County, the Santa Ana Unified School Board also announced it was ending its program to offer free education to students with autism.
According the Santa Clarita Daily News, the program has existed for more than two decades, and in 2017, it received $6.7 million in federal funding.
In January 2018, Los Angeles City Councilmember Eric Garcetti, who represents the area where Daze currently sits, announced that the city would also close its public schools in 2019 because the city’s budget was running out of money.
Garcetti said that if the district were to shut down, the city could still help by offering to build a new public school.
Garcett added that the closure of Daze could affect up to 30,000 children in the area.
“In addition to the many challenges facing our students, the district is currently facing a significant debt load, and as a result, the financial outlook for the district has deteriorated,” he told the Daily News.
Garcetz said that the Los Alamits budget was “not sustainable” and that if it were to close, the closure could impact up to 20,000 school children.
The closure comes at a time when the number of school closures is rising in California.
The number of closures has more than tripled over the last five years, to more than 30, with many schools having closed more than once.
The state’s school closures reached a peak in 2016, with a total of 963 closures.
In 2018, California’s school districts saw a total total of 13,947 closures, according a report from the state’s Department of Education.
In 2019, that number rose to more like 20,835, according ToHO Education.
Schools in the Los Gatos area also announced they were closing schools, which could have an impact on about 1,200 students.
“There is a growing awareness of the economic crisis in the schools, especially for families with children, and we will continue working with the school board to ensure that the community remains in a position to care for their children,” the Los Santa Cruz Unified School district wrote in a letter to parents.
In a statement released to parents, the Los San Carlos Unified School board said that it is “continuing to work to improve the quality of life for students at Dazs, which has impacted many students who have struggled in the past and are currently experiencing difficulty.
