"Report on the Progress and Effectiveness of the Los Angeles Unified School District's Modified Consent Decree During the 2011-12 School Year"

The latest progress report on Los Angeles' ability to serve its students with disabilities shows the district is making headway in some areas, but it is still falling short of a 6-year-old target for providing services as frequently and for as long as special education students need them.

In the reportRequires Adobe Acrobat Reader, issued Oct. 24, the district's independent monitor noted that the district was to have provided—by 2006—93 percent of the services for students with disabilities. That target was the result of a federal court case resolved in 2003. The district has largely reached that target, though intermittently.

But the district fell short of another goal set in the court case, which calls for it to provide 85 percent of those services for the duration and frequency specified by students' education plans.
