Issues

Together, we can:

  1. Improve college and career preparation so that all LAUSD students graduate prepared to persist in their chosen path

  2. Implement responsible and equitable budget solutions that prioritize our highest-need communities so that all students and all schools get what they need to succeed

  3. Elevate the voices of students, parents, educators and school staff so that important decisions are made by those closest to kids and classrooms

 

And here’s how we do it:

  1. Increase college access and career preparation so that all graduates persist in their chosen path

    • Ensure high-quality curriculum, appropriate class size and inclusion practices support all students to meet the rigor of the standards 

    • Integrate social-emotional learning, restorative justice and the arts to help students develop the skills to be creative problem-solvers in life

    • Support teachers with the time to learn, plan, reflect and grow to strengthen pedagogy, innovation and differentiation 

  2. Implement responsible and equitable budget solutions that prioritize our highest-need communities so that all students and all schools get what they need to succeed

    • Aggressively seek additional local, state, federal, and philanthropic funding in collaboration with government, business and community partners, starting with passing the Schools and Communities First ballot initiative

    • Allocate all $1 billion Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) supplemental and concentration funds through the Student Equity Needs Index (SENI)

    • Consider all options for stabilizing the budget, including district real estate options, creative campus configurations, and benefit choices for new employees

  3. Elevate the voices of students, parents, educators and school staff so that important decisions are made by those closest to kids and classrooms

    • Conduct on-going and authentic community engagement conversations about school-site budgets and decisions that reflect the priorities and values each unique school

    • Use multiple forms of quantitative and qualitative data, including absolute and growth metrics, to make data-informed decisions and monitor progress toward goals

    • Prioritize reciprocal learning between school and community to build shared understanding, reduce bias, and improve student outcomes
