LAUSD Strategic Plan

LA Unified is working to guarantee our students will graduate from our schools ready for the world. Check out the Strategic Plan: achieve.lausd.net/strategicplan.

Black Student Achievement Plan

The Black Student Achievement Plan (BSAP) was approved by the LAUSD Board of Education in February of the 2020-21 school year. Funding allocations have been earmarked to address the longstanding disparities in educational outcomes between Black students and their non-Black peers. Dating back to the landmark case, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka in which the U.S. Supreme Court declared that segregated schools were unconstitutional, favorable outcomes for Black students and their communities continue to fall below district and national averages of their non-Black counterparts.

LAUSD Mental Health

The District is using telehealth technology to deliver a range of mental health services for students. All students can access this higher level of mental health care by contacting one of our mental health clinics or Wellness Center in your area.
