The Ad Hoc Task Force was established by the Superintendent of the Los Angeles City public schools to develop a process by which the District could plan to meet the requirements of the State Education Code (AB 724). AB 724 was passed by the 1971 Session of the California State Legislature and, in essence, places State Board of Education guidelines concerning racial isolation into law. This document is in response to the Los Angeles City Board of Education's directive to the Superintendent. A plan is outlined by which the District can meet the requirements of the State Education Code while providing exemplary educational experiences for students with many varying backgrounds. All activities suggested are structured so as also to meet the requirements of Federal support programs. The activities outlined for immediate and future implementation together constitute a comprehensive five-year plan by which maximum impact can be achieved cost-effectively in a minimum amount of time. Problems underlying each suggested activity have been identified, tentative time schedules have been suggested, and resources--both internal and external to the District--have been recommended for the planning and implementation phases of each activity. In addition, the types of community interaction suggested for each activity have been described. (Author/JM)
