LAUSD parent centers aim to boost involvement at schools
from Los Angeles Times
At Gault Street Elementary in California, waves of parents flow through the campus daily. Sometimes the tide is stronger, said parent center director Rosalva Waterford, but they are always there. Volunteers make copies for the teachers using one of the center's three copy machines — including the one they call la viejita (the old woman) a decades-old, yellowing behemoth that frequently gets passed over for the newer models. Parents sometimes help move classroom furniture for an activity or clean up afterward. Centers like the one at Gault in Lake Balboa offer free classes that focus on parents' needs, from helping their children with their homework to learning English.
