LAUSD: No Freebies!

An LAUSD report says 21 teachers illegally required students to purchase school supplies violating California law.

State law says California public schools are not allowed to charge for:

  • Science lab equipment or supplies
  • PE uniforms required to take the class
  • Participating in sports teams
  • Attending graduation ceremonies
  • Books used in class
  • Photography or art class supplies
  • Attending summer school
  • Graduation Attire (if required for commencement ceremony)

Director of Educational Equity Compliance Julie Hall-Panameno admits the LAUSD was made aware of the concerns but "educating administrators can be confusing in the district with 13,000 schools—the second largest in the nation."
