Embracing our diversity to educate L.A.'s youth, ensure academic achievement and empower tomorrow’s leaders. We are Los Angeles Unified.
“We have much to do to help our students, families, and school communities heal and continue learning. We also have a unique opportunity to transform the way we think about public education, improving the outcomes for many of our current and future students. It’s these possibilities that I’m most excited about. I believe that a good education should not be a privilege, but an opportunity afforded to all.”
-Interim Superintendent Megan K. Reilly
