LAUSD utilizes the Grad Van as part of outreach efforts to engage students, parents and the community. The Grad Van provides a unique means of support and information to families across the district that face logistical barriers in accessing school and community resources.
The Grad Van is an eco-friendly vehicle donated by the Southern California Air Quality Management District. It serves as a mobile information center to assist parents and students. The Grad Van is staffed by Pupil Services counselors who provide information on:
Enrollment and registration support
Graduation information, credits earned A-G requirements
Importance of Attendance
Identifying resources needed for student success
The goals of the Grad Van are to:
Promote & inform parents about LAUSD and Pupil Services
Highlight the importance & significance of attendance to academic achievement
Promote and explain superintendent’s performance meter
Provide information on post secondary options
The Grad Van is available for school events anywhere in the district, including health fairs, resource fairs, parent meetings, or activities aimed at community outreach. If you are interested in having the Grad Van at an event, please complete the Request Form and fax to Pupil Services.
