The Los Angeles Unified School District has received over $44 million in state grant funds to help educational programs from under-resourced community school campuses.
"Unfortunately, schools in communities with high rates of poverty, homelessness, and food insecurity lack the funds to address student mental health issues, improve wellness, and support learning recovery. That's why this program is so exciting," said Linda Darling-Hammond, the state Board of Education President, in a statement. She continued to say that, "well-resourced community schools have the potential to transform student' lives and improve the well-being of families, thus uplifting entire communities."
