Engaging Families and Communities

  • An integral component of the PSC Resolution is the inclusion of parents, students, and community members to assist with the transformation process at our PSC schools.

    All applicant teams are expected to meaningfully engage their school community members by both regularly informing the community-at-large, as well as incorporating community feedback into the development of the School Plan Outlines as part of the application process.

    The goal is to ensure that parents, students, and community members are invited to make informed decisions about the schools in their community.

    With the support of the Federal Investing in Innovation Grant and ongoing partnerships with organizations such as United Way of Greater Los Angeles (UWLA) and LAUSD’s Parent Community Services Branch, LAUSD will support teams to effectively engage school stakeholders throughout the entire cycle of the PSC process.

    Parent and Community Engagement Facilitators will be available to support schools in hosting regular meetings for parents, students, and community members where participants will have an opportunity to review school data, understand elements of a high-quality school and review the school proposals and offer their feedback for the Superintendent’s consideration.
