    SENI Task Force

    Board Resolution 023-20/21 (Equity is Justice 2021) specified that: 

    [The] Superintendent will convene a taskforce to gather meaningful community input to inform the development of a support and evaluation plan for student outcomes as a result of SENI investments. The plan should be presented to the Board and public by June 2022.

    The evaluation plan should identify: 

    1. How the District will measure the impact of SENI funding on student outcomes,
    2. What support and assistance will be provided to school sites receiving funding to facilitate the effective and equitable use of SENI funding, and
    3. What additional and targeted budgeting support will be implemented for schools, communities of schools, or local districts that do not improve student outcomes starting in 2022-23.

    American Institutes for Research (AIR) Evaluation of SENI 

    In January of 2020, in order to evaluate the impacts and implementation of the Student Equity Needs Index (SENI) in Los Angeles Unified, the District entered into a contract with the American Institutes for Research (AIR) for a qualitative and quantitative mixed-methods study.
