State Finds LA Public School District Kept Millions From Catholic Schools

Escala said Catholic schools with disproportionately high numbers of impoverished children started feeling the impacts beginning in 2018 as “instructional coaches, teachers, individuals who were serving these children were told to pack their bags and their personal belongings and leave the school.”

“They were no longer assigned to those schools,” Escala said. “These are schools that are already serving the poor so they’re already underresourced and small and then have to figure out how to pay to supplement for the loss of those individuals.”

Escala said he expects the district to reimburse eligible students for services that they had not received over the past several years.
