For the first time since the Los Angeles school district began its Safe School Inspection Program, none of its schools have a "poor" rating on the program’s Health & Safety Compliance Scorecard.
In 2003, when the program was introduced, 272 of 798 campuses received a poor rating. In May 2010, no schools received a "poor."
"The safety of our students is our highest priority," says school superintendent Ramon C. Cortines.
A poor rating indicates that a school does not meet the minimum requirements in several health and safety categories.
