What
Student Recovery Day to Reclaim Drop-Outs Every Student Matters
When
9/14/2017, 8:00 AM 12:00 PM

School Board Members, District employees and volunteers refuse to give up on students who have not returned to school. On this Ninth Annual Student Recovery Day, L.A. Unified will continue the campaign to locate students who have dropped out or are at risk of leaving school. They will be offered resources and supports to help them get back in school.

Board members also will visit targeted schools and participate in a news conference that will include three “recovered” students. Deonte Lewis, Emely Rios and Haley Aguilar will share their stories. In addition, L.A. Unified employees and volunteers will visit homes, make phone calls, and identify no-show students and help them re-enroll. Since 2009, the first District-wide effort, 5,219 students have been recovered.
