LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Officials with the Los Angeles Unified School District raced on Monday to meet a fast-approaching deadline to apply for up to $40 million in federal grants.

Superintendent John Deasy told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that the application would add more jobs to the district payroll and help guide students toward their ultimate goal.

“It would put hundreds of positions to our middle schools and high schools to support students so they could be on track for graduation,” he said.
