Parent Support @East LA COS

 Meet Laura!

Listen up, East LA!  I am Laura Bañuelos and what an amazing opportunity to be able to serve this community as a Parent Educator Coach with the LD East Parent and Community Engagement Unit.  As a proud product of LAUSD, it is a privilege to give back to the community that inspired, guided and challenged me to follow my dreams.  In my capacity, I work with school personnel to increase student achievement through parent engagement.  I support and provide assistance with parent workshops, Parent and Family Centers, English Learner Advisory Committee, School Site Council, LD East Study Groups, the Volunteer Program just to list a few. 






Professional Development for Teachers/Administrators

As we continue our work with Parents as Partners, we build meaningful relationships that will support our district and school goals.  100% Graduation is possible when all stakeholders work together with those goals in mind.  As a Parent Educator Coach I support and provide assistance with the following:

  • Parents as Equal Partners 
  • School-Parent Compact
  • Parent Portal Features and Regist
  • Parent and Family Engagement Policy
  • Powerful Partnerships
  • Family Book Clubs
