L..A. Unified parents were elected by their peers to make recommendations on Superintendent John Deasy's spending plans, but found important details missing.

It's budget season at school districts across California and this year, parents are getting more of a voice than usual.

New state law requires districts to get meaningful parent input before passing next year's spending plans. That's no small task for Los Angeles Unified, a district of 650,000 kids, and a budget of nearly $7 billion.

KPCC's Annie Gilbertson takes us to the district's newly-created parent committee.
