    CAC Student Membership Application

    The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) application window for new student members has re-opened! The CAC seeks to fill two student member vacancies. This is a wonderful opportunity for an LAUSD high school student, with an active IEP, to gain leadership skills, learn how LAUSD supports students with IEPs, and provide recommendations to the Board of Education on programs and services to help our students become college and career ready.

This includes highly mobile children, migrant children, children experiencing homelessness, children who are wards of the state and children attending private schools located within LAUSD boundaries regardless of where they reside.
