LAUSD Charter Transparency
Keeping Parents Informed: LAUSD-‐Authorized Charter Transparency
Watts Learning Center Charter Elementary School is a charter public school governed by a nonprofit board of directors and overseen by the Los Angeles Unified School District. On January 12, 2016, the LAUSD board voted to approve a Board Resolution, “Keeping Parents Information: Charter Transparency” which was passed with the support of the LA charter community. The resolution highlighted information and data that charter public schools share with parents through their charter petitions, School Accountability Report Cards, Local Education Agency Plans, Local Control Accountability Plans, Annual Audits, and other publicly available documents.
This information is available from Watts Learning Center electronically or manually by parent request. Per the board resolution, parents may request this information in English and any single primary language meeting the requirements of Sections 45400 through 45403 of the California Education Code. Please submit parent requests for information, including translations to School Director, Dr. Kemi Mustapha at [email protected] or make the request to the front office of Watts Learning Center Charter Elementary in person or via phone 323.754.9900.
