Parent Summit
15th Annual Parent Summit and InfoTech 2011
LAUSD, the nation's second largest school district, serves more than 650,000 K-12 students, reaches over a million parents in 710 square miles and serves 27 cities. Each year LAUSD hosts the annual Parent Summit, which is attended by nearly 5,000 parents and is the largest in the nation.

This daylong event on April 30th at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 South Figueroa, Los Angeles, CA 90015, will serve to engage and inform parents and the community regarding current educational initiatives and programs, family and school partnerships, and District resources. Parents can select from more than 30 different workshops, which will include teaching parents in-home literacy and strategies to support homework, explanations of state and federal legislation, information to assist parents of children with special needs, and information on community resources.

The District's annual InfoTech Conference, showcasing the use of student technology in the classroom, takes place during the morning hours of the Parent Summit. This year's Parent Summit and InfoTech will also include participation by the Superintendent, members of the Board of Education, and other elected officials.

This year, we are also proud to announce that enrichment activities are provided for school-age children, ages 5 to 17.
