Superintendent's Message

  • king Welcome. The employees of the Los Angeles Unified School District believe that each child can achieve great things and that it is our responsibility to provide personalized, high-quality instruction in a caring and welcoming environment.

    I am a true believer in L.A. Unified. I began in this rich and diverse district as a student. My dreams were fostered by teachers, administrators and staff who worked tirelessly to ensure I had the tools to succeed. Later, as an educator and now as Superintendent of Schools, I see students like me filled with excitement about learning and striving to achieve their dreams. I also see dedicated staff focused on building collaborative school communities that support the success of the whole scholar.

    There are so many students, teachers and parents with fresh ideas and insights about the work of the District, and I am excited to engage with them and expand on our accomplishments. Through teamwork and a commitment to student achievement, we can continue to build a District that is unified in every way so that our graduates are ready for whatever path they choose.
