Introducing Speak UP Board Watch

Speak UP Board Watch is the new digital hub for parents to keep up with all the important LAUSD board actions affecting your kids and their schools.

We believe the best way to hold lawmakers accountable for putting the needs of kids first is for parents to stay informed and to have the knowledge and resources needed to take action and advocate for your kids.

The goal of this site is to provide a one-stop resource to learn what’s coming up at LAUSD board meetings (Board Agendas), to watch the meetings live (LAUSD Live Stream), to get analysis of how well board actions reflect Speak UP’s kids-first agenda (At The Board) and to take action, contact your board members and make your voice heard (Take Action).

In our About the District page, we provide an organizational chart breaking down who does what at LAUSD, and we provide their contact numbers so you can reach the right person and get your concerns addressed.  

With Sacramento Watch, we will keep you up to speed on important state legislation and policies passed by the state Board of Education and state superintendent of public instruction – all through Speak UP’s kids-first lens.

And we’ll feature parent voices with videos about important topics related to Speak UP’s platform, principles and kids-first agenda.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about the site and ideas for how to make it more useful to you. Please feel free to reach out any time at or

Many thanks,

Katie Braude, Executive Director of Speak UP
