Superintendent Carvalho's 100-Day Plan Report
Dear Los Angeles Unified Family,
Since I first arrived in Los Angeles Unified, I have challenged our team to be bold, innovative and focused on the elements to support student achievement. This challenge was welcomed with open arms and excitement. On February 24, 2022, we released an ambitious 100-Day Plan to take immediate actions to support Los Angeles Unified, while devising the foundation for the work ahead, including the development of our 2022-26 Strategic Plan.
With the core beliefs of equity, collaboration and excellence, we embarked on four key tasks: Learn, Assess, Communicate and Act. I am proud of the work that has taken place across these tasks and I remain steadfast in my commitment for the work to come.
Throughout my first 100 days, we have engaged nearly 6,000 stakeholders in person and virtually about what must be prioritized to support student success and close gaps, and over 14,000 individuals shared ideas and feedback via surveys. The input from our stakeholders has truly laid the groundwork for our 100-Day Plan actions and Strategic Plan.
We have already accomplished great things together. We have filled all in-school vacancies with fully credentialed individuals, launched a pilot data dialogues program with priority schools, welcomed central office employees back to our headquarters safely and identified key strategies to address the negative impacts of the pandemic through an incredible array of summer school and enrichment offerings and additional acceleration days next school year. We are proud of the continued investments in our most needed communities as evidenced by commitments to closing the digital divide, expanding early education, monitoring and improving air quality, the Black Student Achievement Plan, increasing arts education, the greening of schools, and expanding dual-language programs.
I am grateful to all of our employees who have the skill, will and deep commitment to our students and school communities. I am also grateful for the students, families, staff and civic partners who offered their voices. Please know that the conversations we had and the work in the 100-Day Plan is not a “one and done”; it is just the beginning.
There is much work to be done, but I believe we have all the resources and skills needed to turn the impossible into the inevitable as we shift from being compliance-driven to student-driven and sharpen our focus on supporting student achievement. I am standing with you – shoulder to shoulder – to continue to move mountains for our students and the entire Los Angeles Unified family.
