The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is one of eight California school districts recently awarded a No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Waiver for the California Office to Reform Education (CORE). The waiver allows these districts to create a more robust, flexible system of accountability to ensure students are college-prepared and career-ready.

The Board of Education postponed its vote on the District’s Common Core State Standards budget proposal for a special session scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 12 p.m.

In an effort to further engage parents, the Board of Education passed a resolution to help make the screening process easier for potential parent volunteers. The resolution calls for a plan in 30 days to increase locations for parent volunteers to get required fingerprinting and provide more affordable, convenient options for tuberculosis (TB) screenings.
