A letter from School Board President Marlene Canter

August 16, 2006

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Los Angeles Unified School Board and Superintendent Romer,
I am proud to announce that student test scores in the LAUSD are continuing
to rise for the sixth straight year, according to official state data
released this week.

LAUSD's elementary and middle schools outpaced statewide gains in English
language arts, and State Superintendent Jack O'Connell praised the LAUSD for
our upward momentum in scores - which he says show "the district is on the
right track." I invite you to find out more, by following these links:

In addition, I invite you to review three recent articles from the Los
Angeles Times, concerning the District and Assembly Bill 1381 - state legislation sponsored by the Mayor of Los Angeles that would drastically change the governance structure of the LAUSD:

Thank you for your attention to these important matters, and I look forward
to continuing our dialogue.


/s/Marlene Canter
Board President
Los Angeles Unified School District
