It’s official! After three years of working to prepare and submit our Petition, it is now certified by the County Registrar-Recorder as meeting the signature requirements for moving to the next phase of the formal process. We expect that the County Committee on School Organization will be receiving the petition at their next scheduled meeting in September, after which public hearings will be held and the LACOE Division of Business Advisory Services will begin an investigation and staff analysis process.

On June 29, 2016, UniteLCF! Chair Tom Smith and Co-chair Nalini Lasiewicz delivered a formal petition and signatures to the Los Angeles County Office of Education. This event marks a milestone in the neighborhood campaign launched three years ago. In June of 2013, the La Cañada Flintridge city council approved a Resolution brought by Tom Smith and scores of residents in support of a Territory Transfer. Our petition seeks to unite and strengthen a fractured community by granting all La Cañada Flintridge residents the same opportunity to attend their hometown public schools and to benefit from the same social, civic and educational resources currently enjoyed by the other 90% of LCF families, residents and voters.
