Need Information on Los Angeles Schools?

If you have school-age children, the local schools are a large factor in deciding on
where to look for a new home. There is a wealth of information available on the Los
Angeles Unified School District’s website:

You can search for a particular type of program, such as bilingual, magnet, or pilot
or enter an address in the “find a school” feature at the bottom of the screen, and
search by the school name or residence address to find the names and locations of
the neighborhood elementary, middle, and high schools.

The listing for each of the schools includes a short history of the school, an overview
of hours, meal offerings, before and after school care and arts programs, and the next
open house. The listing also includes demographic information, rate of parent
participation, performance data, and the percentage of students who feel safe in the
school. You can also click through to the school website.

This is also the site to download application forms. Parents of registered students
have a special sign-in to get specific school information.

Making Sure you Stay Insured

In May, State Farm stopped the sale of new home-insurance policies in California.
Trevor Chapman, a spokesperson for Farmer’s Insurance, stated that the
catastrophe costs were at such high levels that the California home insurance marketplace continues to be challenging for insurers, requiring companies to take
actions to reduce risk exposure.

You need to start planning now for the growing possibility that our home or
vacation home insurance provider won’t renew coverage. If you suspect you are
going to be dropped or already have, act quickly. Check with neighbors and friends
for references and contact those companies right away.

Beware of ghost brokers who post as insurance agents accepting money for fake
insurance policies. Before giving your private information to a company or broker
you are unsure of, ask for their National Association of Insurance Commissioners, or
NAIC, number. You can search for an insurance company’s reported complaint
history in NAIC by inputting the company’s name or NAIC number in its consumer
insurance tool.

If you can’t get private insurance, you may need to turn to the state. The California Fair Plan used to be known as the insurance of last resort but may be the best (or only) option for many property owners in the state and is worth learning more about.

Below is the link to their website to you can look into the coverages available:
