LAUSD board approves $8.2 billion budget that pays for students' college admissions tests

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles Unified School District board has approved a new spending plan that grants free college admissions tests for students.

The $8.2 billion plan will take effect during the next school year.

Most expenses will stay the same, except students will be covered when taking college aptitude tests like the SAT or ACT.

The board also talked about asking voters for more money in November in the form of a parcel tax but postponed a decision until next month.
