Save L.A. Community High School

They've run out of funding, leaving 35 aspiring students with nowhere to turn.

Funding Issues

Average Daily Attendance (ADA) is a crucial figure for funding, yet attendance is poorest in high poverty areas.  Poor attendance also happens to be a leading cause of students getting kicked out of school.  When students get caught up in selling drugs, for example, they have to go to jail or juvenile hall.  The court system is set up in such a way that they’ll have to miss weeks of school before even receiving disciplinary action.

Performance based funding is granted upon evidence of high test scores. Given the association between low scores and basis for need, the schools that are seemingly most qualified for aid will ultimately drop the state’s education numbers.
