ATTENDANCE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMMissionTo ensure that all LAUSD students are enrolled, attending, engaged, and on-track to graduate.
PurposeThe goal of the Attendance Improvement Program (AIP) is to increase the percentage of students attending school at a rate of 96% or higher in Kindergarten and Grade 9.

In September 2011, the LAUSD launched the AIP to provide targeted child welfare and attendance services and support in Kindergarten and Grade 9.Program ObjectivesAll program schools will:
