Message from Vivian Ekchian
Welcome to the L.A. Unified School District.
My name is Vivian Ekchian. I am humbled and honored to serve the students, families, employees, and community members of the L.A. Unified School District as interim superintendent.
Having worked as a teacher and principal in L.A. Unified, I am keenly aware that students require individualized supports to meet both their social-emotional and academic needs. Student achievement data will continue to serve as our compass, so that our energy is focused on strategies that work best in the classroom, and resources are directed to the areas of greatest need.
Diversity remains our strength. Our district is the proud home of students and families from all walks of life who collectively speak nearly 100 different languages. We respect and value each member of our L.A. Unified family, and prioritize the cultivation of warm, welcoming, and inclusive learning environments for all.
I look forward to accelerating the transformative work that is occurring throughout the District. Together, we will achieve our goal of 100 percent graduation and equip students with the knowledge and global skills they will need to thrive in college, career, and life.
