Getting Our Kids Graduated

The Black Community Health Task Force was fortunate to have Dr. Michelle Woods as the guest presenter on Monday, August 29, 2016. She discussed with us the importance of Individual Graduation Plans (IGP). This plan is a clear visualization of what is needed to meet California, CSU, and UC graduation requirements. Unfortunately, many counselors in LAUSD are not providing parents and students with this plan.

Here are links to LAUSD IGP templates we located online here and here.

In a recent article here, it is stated that only 59% of LAUSD high school students are receiving an IGP!

Parents of high school students (and middle school students) need an Individual Graduation Plan. If you have not received one, contact your child’s counselor immediately. If the counselor cannot or will not provide you with one, contact the principal.

Let’s make sure we are aware of resources that are available through LAUSD and share the information.

Onward & Upward,
