LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Parents have a new tool to monitor their students if they attend the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The district unveiled an upgrade to its existing app, "LAUSD Mobile App 3.0."
It will provide instant live access to student attendance, grades, assignments due, graduation progress and Individualized Education Plans, also known as IEPs.
There is also a messaging tool on the app that allows students, parents and guardians to communicate directly with one another.
Plus another perk: transportation tracking.
