Board Members Kelly Gonez, Nick Melvoin and Monica Garcia are introducing a resolution to help provide housing and support for homeless students and their families using LAUSD facilities. LAUSD-owned sites could be used for safe overnight parking, and schools could be used as overnight shelters. Board Members Monica Garcia and Nick Melvoin are introducing a second resolution to help create affordable housing for LAUSD employees.
LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner has also requested a resolution to waive the fee for fingerprinting parents who want to volunteer at schools.
LAUSD will also hear a presentation on student growth. Some highlights of the data: 29 percent of LAUSD elementary schools have above average math growth, and the worst math growth comes from Local District West elementary schools. The entire agenda can be found here.
