Parents vote for partnership at 24th Street Elementary School
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Parents at a low-performing school in Los Angeles' West Adams area approved a plan under the so-called Parent Trigger Law.
The 24th Street Elementary School will now be managed by a partnership between the Los Angeles Unified School District and Crown Preparatory Academy, which is a charter school company.
The Parent Trigger Law lets parents decide who should be in charge of under-performing schools. Although previous parent-trigger petitions have led to legal battles, LAUSD officials opted not to challenge the petition from 24th Street Elementary parents.
According to Crown Prep, more than 80 percent of voting parents opted for the partnership, under which the district will operate kindergarten through fourth-grade classes, and Crown Prep operates fifth- through eighth-grades.
