LAUSD School Transfers

LAUSD School Transfers

CNS–The Board of Supervisors today sought to modify a plan by the Los Angeles Unified School District to cancel “interdistrict permits,” which enable students who live within LAUSD boundaries to go to schools in other districts.

Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said students should be allowed to finish out their education at their current elementary, middle or high schools before being forced to attend an LAUSD school.

The district should “do this rationally, in a phased-in approach,” rather than canceling all transfer permits summarily, Yaroslavsky said.

As proposed by the LAUSD, students enrolled outside the LAUSD would have to transfer to LAUSD schools this summer, unless they have less a year left to graduation or promotion to the next level of schooling.

Superintendent Ramon Cortines and the LAUSD Board of Education are hoping that canceling interdistrict permits will save about $51 million in state funding.

The change is expected to affect about 80 percent of the 12,000-plus students granted interdistrict permits. In Torrance alone, 2,169 students attend school under the transfer permits.

But Yaroslavsky said the LAUSD’s gain will be a revenue loss to other districts, calling it a “zero-sum game.”

The board voted unanimously to send a letter to the LAUSD asking for the change.
