We are LAUSD

Getting to Know LAUSD

One Community. One Purpose.

At the forefront of innovation in public education, our purpose is to educate all students to their maximum potential.

Geographically larger than the City of Los Angeles itself, we are 600,000 plus students and about 65,000 employees who collectively speak about 80 languages.  With over 1,000 schools and centers, we are governed by a Board of Education.  We consist of eight Local Districts, each of which is headed by a Local District Superintendent who reports directly to the District’s chief administrator, the Superintendent of Schools.  Our success in accomplishing our mission is in the strength of our people.  For over 100 years in the business of education, we have changed and grown, but our mission still remains the same, and will continue to endure the test of time.
