Operation Save Our Special Schools, a coalition which includes several parents and teachers, demonstrated Tuesday outside the school board building at 333 S. Beaudry Ave.

The group was trying to keep the LAUSD’s remaining special-education centers, which were on a list of budget cuts, open.

“Parents, Teachers and Students United for Action is concerned that health and safety measures are not in place for students being transferred to traditional campuses,” according to a news release from the organization.
