    Pupil Services attends the Annual Kingdom Parade

    King Day parade collage The 33rd Annual Kingdom Day Parade was held on Monday, January 15, 2018 to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King's 89th Birthday. Los Angeles Unified School District's (LAUSD) Pupil Services staff, Ms. Jessica Gonzalez and Ms. Karen Duarte Bustos, joined LAUSD's Beyond the Bell All District Marching Band at the parade to show their support for student attendance. As the All District Marching Band proudly marched down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Los Angeles, Ms. Gonzalez and Ms. Duarte Bustos distributed flyers to parade attendees to showcase the District's new Attendance Campaign, "I Rise. I Attend. I Matter." The flyers provided the opportunity to highlight to the broader community the importance of student attendance and L.A. Unified's commitment to 100% attendance.
