L.A. School Officials Order Review Of Every Senior’s Transcript

Reacting to ongoing problems with a new computerized student data system, Los Angeles school district officials have ordered a review of every senior’s transcript and brought in counselors and administrators to ensure those records won’t hurt students’ chances to graduate or apply to college.

Supt. Ramon C. Cortines announced the move Monday. It’s unclear how many of Los Angeles Unified’s nearly 38,000 seniors are affected, but difficulties with the new system are being reported across the nation’s second-largest district.

“As superintendent, I take full responsibility for ensuring that our systems are functioning correctly in support of students,” Cortines said in a statement.
