  • Our Purpose

    The AEA Unit approaches all training, initiatives, administrative and teaching practices through a lens of equity to cultivate culturally proficient mindsets and close academic and opportunity gaps.


    Professional DevelopmentProfessional Development 

    Culturally and linguistically responsive skill sets are developed as teachers are provided with training and resources to provide higher levels of motivation, engagement, and access to the content for underserved student populations.



  • Equality GraphicThe Why

    As opportunity gaps become more pervasive in society, we need to address the inequities and implement systematic solutions across the district. The Access, Equity and Acceleration, unit of LAUSD works collaboratively to ensure fair, equitable opportunities for all students. The departments within AEA work to increase the academic achievement and social-emotional wellness of students, helping to ensure that all students will reach their full potential in life.




    Culturally proficient mindsets are cultivated as teachers and school leaders are provided with professional learning opportunities and resources that help them identify asset-based strategies and confront biases.






    The AEA unit approaches all meetings, initiatives, administrative and teaching practices with a lens of equity. We stand up and speak up for our underserved students so they may rise up to the high expectations we know they can achieve.
