LA Unified took another step today toward completing the roster of parents who will serve on an advisory panel charged with helping set spending goals for new state money coming into the district through the Local Control Funding Formula.
In recent days, meetings of parents and guardians at the district’s five Educational Service Center areas have produced two representatives of low-income families and two at-large members to serve on the Parent Advisory Committee. The final four members, from the ESC-West, were selected today.
Those 20 parents will be joined by others, representing foster children and English learners, as well as one parent representative nominated by each of the six board members plus a seventh for the vacant District 1 seat for a total of 47 committee members.
The panel will review the Local Control and Accountability Plan, which is required by state law as a condition of the district’s receiving the new education funding.
