Statement from Board Member Ratliff on Vandalism at Sunland Elementary School

 March 14, 2016

"The break-in and vandalism of a public elementary school is obviously outrageous. I greatly appreciate how everyone immediately rallied around Sunland Elementary School today. While community members were quick to offer to fundraise and replace the vandalized computers, Local District Northeast (LDNE) Superintendent Byron Maltez offered to replace all of the computers out of LDNE funds. The teamwork between our L.A. Unified School Police Department and the Los Angeles Police Department is impressive, and clearly shows the devotion of law enforcement to our students and schools.”
