LAUSD Committee of the Whole Meeting Jan. 23

The Los Angeles Unified School Board will hold its Committee of the Whole meeting Tuesday at Pacoima Middle School to discuss the steps the LAUSD Division of Instruction’s Innovation Office is taking to allow educators to more easily share and implement promising practices across all subject areas. The full agenda can be found here.

According to a preview of the presentation, titled "Learning Together - Innovation and Improvement Sciences," the best practices include not only in-class instruction and management strategies but also ideas relating to school budgets and organization.

The discussion also will focus on ways to ensure that these practices are used in underperforming schools that have access to School Improvement Grants. Principals at San Fernando High School and Sutter Middle School in Canoga Park, both SIG recipients, will discuss how their schools are using grant money to make progress with innovative approaches and practices.

Other topics on Tuesday’s agenda include the Data Privacy Day, the National Day of Service, January as National Mentoring Month, a commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and special recognition for the Board’s Partners of the Month in Districts 2 through 6.
