    FEMA Courses

    We highly recommend that LAUSD employees, especially school site administrators, take the following four Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) online courses. These courses will give you a solid foundation in managing a disaster at your school. Please note that LAUSD salary points are NOT available for FEMA courses. All FEMA courses now require a FEMA Student ID (FEMA SID) number, which must be applied for by the individual here. Please do not contact anyone in LAUSD regarding your FEMA SID number. 

    After you have completed each course, please email a copy of your FEMA certificate to emergencyservices@lausd.net for our database.
