LA School Targeted with Parent-Trigger Takeover

One of lowest-ranked elementary schools in the state


Los Angeles Unified School District will finally become a target of a Parent Trigger, a California law that allows parents to take over a failing school in which their children attend, according to L.A. School Report.

Parents at 24th Street Elementary School, with the help of Los Angeles-based education reform group Parent Revolution, will deliver the required signature petition to L.A. Unified officials in downtown on Thursday morning to start the process of taking over the school, according to Parent Revolution officials.

By law, more than 50 percent of parents at a given California school must sign off on the Parent Trigger, which allows parents to institute various changes such as creating a charter school.
