“We’re going to have to empower the parents and create parent-led teams for those parents who need help with the education of their children. We’re going to surround you with people and resources to help you with your children. “We want to make sure these schools are serving your children better … We’re going to make sure you’re directly involved.” Brewer said the centers are designed to serve as bridges between schools and parents, helping answer questions and get services faster than through a central office bureaucracy. Brewer said he will release more details in coming weeks, as well as a plan to put parent literacy centers in neighborhood housing areas. Julie Baxter, a parent at the summit, said she looks forward to a center that would help her and her preschool-age son, who is in special education. Boosting efforts to engage communities, schools Superintendent David Brewer III said Saturday he will open parent-led centers in neighborhood housing areas, with the first one in the Jordan Downs housing projects in Watts. The announcement at the 11th annual Parent Summit came just a day after an audit concluded that the Los Angeles Unified School District is disorganized, lacks financial controls and suffers from a pervasive lack of accountability. One key recommendation of the audit was to increase parent and community involvement in the district in an effort to boost student achievement. “I would like to take this district to world-class status,” Brewer told thousands of parents gathered Saturday at the Los Angeles Convention Center. “But I cannot do that without you. You will be the engine … because without the parents, we will not be able to increase student achievement. “In preschool, I had to fight to get my son tested because there’s no communication with that main office and it’s really disorganized,” said Baxter, from Sun Valley. “Hopefully, it gets implemented, and the money gets distributed properly. A lot of it is bureaucracy here and the money is not even for the kids.” Brewer said he wants to streamline communication between offices and give employees the tools to make the LAUSD a more efficient system. To help change the culture of the district, Brewer said he plans to create a transformation team to “right the ship of LAUSD … and create more efficiencies inside LAUSD.” “We have a good school district, we have great, hard-working people in this school district, but the problem for many of our people is that they are working inside a system that, frankly speaking, is not very efficient. It’s not serving them well,” Brewer said. Teacher Jerrilyn Taylor said that in more than 30 years with the district, she has never seen a superintendent so intent on involving parents. “We’ve never thought of anything like that before. He is really working to make this school district and educational process very effective and successful,” Taylor said. “We’ve never had a superintendent in touch with the community and parents like this one.” But while parents were excited about news of parent-led centers, some were wary. Erika Rodriguez of Montecito Heights said she recalled a parent summit two years ago at which then-Superintendent Roy Romer vowed to improve schools. “I didn’t see that much improvement, so I’m a little skeptical,” Rodriguez said. “I think Superintendent Brewer has a lot of great ideas, but the implementation is where it counts.” [email protected] dailynews.com (818) 713-3722 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
