A $25,000 one year renewal grant will enable CADRE to develop parent leadership from within South Central Los Angeles communities to hold public schools accountable for providing quality opportunities to learn, regardless of race and class and end school push-outs/dropouts. In 2011, CADRE expanded its target outreach to the local teachers’ union (UTLA) to obtain their support and buy-in of the full implementation of the LAUSD comprehensive school-wide positive behavior support (SWPBS) school discipline policy. Since then, suspension rates in LAUSD have dropped District-wide by over 48%. Over the next year, CADRE will continue to organize to ensure full implementation of positive behavior and restorative practices in South LA and LAUSD schools.
