What your dollars fund this year…

Each year, as parents and supporters of King, we donate all we can to cover for programs, equipment and materials that make a difference in our children’s education and that LAUSD does not fund. As of April 2016, our parent organization Friends of King had received $133,459 in requests for the 2016-17 school year alone.
