The Los Angeles Unified School District is inviting students to apply for three vacant positions on the district’s Sex Equity Commission.
The commission has 29 members, and three seats are reserved for students. Positions also are available for non-voting student members. The commission discusses the study of women’s history, elimination of sexual harassment, equity for female students in school programs, a student’s right to take non-traditional vocational classes and equal education for students who are pregnant or have children.
The commission proposes recommendations to the school board for changes in policies and practices in the district.
Commission members serve on the board for two years and meet monthly at district headquarters. Interested students may call Donna Cassyd at (213) 625-4004.
The district includes schools in Bell, Cudahy, Huntington Park, Maywood, South Gate and Vernon.
