BREAKING: this morning, LAUSD parents filed a citizen complaint to ask that the Los Angeles Superior Court’s Civil Grand Jury investigate/audit the iPad and MiSiS deals that were costly but seemed highly ineffective. They want an independent body outside of LAUSD to conduct its own investigation.
The Civil Grand Jury consists of 23 residents of Los Angeles who consider whistleblower evidence presented by city or county employees, perform investigations and audits into county or city agencies, scrutinize jail conditions, and also consider requests by Angelenos to address the actions or policies of Los Angeles County agencies. They issue a public report and operate under the guidance of the Los Angeles Superior Court and the judges who sit there.
In addition to holding a press event, one of the main parents driving the request, Kahllid Al-Alim, also spoke to the LAUSD School Board during public comment at the regular session (currently taking place as of this posting.)
More as it develops.
