Los Angeles City Council overwhelmingly approved amended maps today for the Los Angeles Unified School District today.
The council voted 9-2 in favor of the new maps, with Council members Bernard Parks and Jan Perry voting against the redistricted map. Parks expressed concern that the L.A. Unified Redistricting Commission’s final map had not been properly reviewed by the public prior to its adoption.
There has been a continuous current of criticism throughout the once-in-a-decade process about the lack of public involvement and notice.
A final council vote on the maps is set for June.
