With new education tax dollars coming in, LAUSD is quickly assembling a 47-member Parent Advisory Committee as part of its Local Control Accountability Plan, which represents the district’s spending priorities. For parents there’s a two-step process for participating.

A local School Site Council identifies interested parents as  potential candidates. Then each council nominates one parent of a “low income” student and one parent of an “at large” student, who will then proceed to the next round.

Parents of English Language Learners (ELL) and foster youth will also be represented on the PAC but are chosen through a different process.

All potential candidates must attend the next parent meeting at the regional Education Service Center, where nominations will be made. After each candidate speaks, those in attendance will vote.

The schedule for elections is available here.
