Update: Nearly 500 Kids Graduating From Locke High School

IMG_0493I'm at my godson's graduation in DC otherwise I'd be at the Locke High School graduation taking place this afternoon in Los Angeles-- the third since the school shifted over from LAUSD to Green Dot.  The last class of kids who started out under the old regime is finishing up.  The school board president is going to be there, which is a nice sign of ceremonial cooperation between the district and its charter brethren.  Over all, 484 kids are going to graduate, a larger number than in the two previous years (and the last year under LAUSD though the 2007 number may have been close). The numbers for next year -- the first set of kids who've been through four years under Green Dot -- should be even stronger, I'm told.  There are 525 juniors currently on track to graduate in 2012. Pictured are Mike, Vick, and T -- three of the tough but warm campus aides who generally helped Locke kids feel good about coming to school (and made sure they went to class).
