Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho presented the proposed 2022-23 budget to the LAUSD Board of Education on June 14 for consideration.
The district’s nearly $18.5-billion budget includes significant increases, resulting in $1.9-billion in new investments that reinforce a commitment to academic excellence, joy and wellness, and support for students and employees. The budget prioritizes equity-based funding, social emotional learning, school greening and outdoor education, expanded learning opportunities, tutoring services, dual language programs, parent engagement, staff professional development, and school safety and security.
“The 2022-23 budget addresses the district’s most pressing issues while reaffirming our longstanding commitment to providing communities throughout all 710 square miles with a nurturing environment,” Carvalho said. “We remain vigilant and will ensure we most effectively and efficiently allocate recurring and non-recurring resources.”
This year’s budget also reflects LAUSD’s dedication to supporting its workforce, he said, building toward long-term fiscal sustainability and protecting taxpayers’ investments.
“I am honored to present this budget as we finalize our work on the 100-Day Plan and prepare to introduce our forthcoming strategic plan,” Carvalho added. “These proposed financial investments will align with the work we are doing to inspire unparalleled student achievement.”
The LAUSD Board of Education is scheduled to vote on the proposed budget at its June 21 meeting. For information, visit lausd.net.
