Superintendent Message

  • LD South Superintendent I am honored to have been selected as the Superintendent for Local District South. I am committed to serving all constituents in the communities of San Pedro, Wilmington, Lomita, Harbor City, Carson, Gardena, and selected geographic regions of Los Angeles. My 30 years of experience in L.A. Unified have given me an appreciation for the dedicated work of principals, District employees, families and our Local District South communities, and their dedication to the success of our students.  We celebrate the diversity in Local District South and pledge that all of our students will receive a high-quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.

    As I begin my tenure as Superintendent, I want to share my priorities with you:

    • We will work to ensure that we provide high quality instruction and a coherent and rigorous curriculum in every classroom to facilitate learning and achievement at high levels.
    • We will facilitate the use of data to drive all decision-making and ensure effective core instruction for all students, coupled with support and intervention, when students need extra assistance or accelerated learning.
    • We will build the capacity of every adult who works with children through the establishment of professional learning communities that translate into improved teaching and learning.

    With administrators, teachers, staff, parents and community members working together, we can realize our vision of 100% of our students being college prepared and career ready. Your partnership is critical to our success, and I welcome your input on how better to serve you.

  • Strike Hotline

    Local District South parents and families, 

    Los Angeles Unified has welcomed students at all elementary, middle and high schools during the current work stoppage. Schools and educators are providing meals and a safe learning environment. Schools are open and throughout the UTLA strike. Our early education centers are open to special-needs students and our state preschool sites will be closed.

    Los Angeles Unified wants to keep students safe and learning in schools. We regret the hardship the strike is creating for you and your child. The District will continue to work around the clock to find a solution to end the strike. 

    If you have any questions, please visit LAUSD.net or call our district hotline at 213-443-1300. 

    Thank you.
