LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Some big changes are expected as the Los Angeles Unified School District prepares for the start of a new school year Tuesday.
Healthier meals in school cafeterias, iPads in the classrooms, and a greater emphasis on free health services are among the changes that will be implemented this year, officials said.
Tougher high school graduation standards will require incoming freshman to maintain a “C” average. Previously, a “D” average was all that was needed to graduate.
“It’s about changing the culture,” said Bernadette Lucas of the LAUSD Common Core Project.
