Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho announced changes on Nov. 15 to the district’s organizational structure to align its purpose, functions and positions to the new 2022-26 strategic plan.
After a series of achievements for the district including increasing attendance rates, demonstrating greater growth than similar schools on the National Assessment of Educational Progress test and receiving positive financial assessments from three rating agencies, the new alignment continues momentum and will ensure all students receive an equitable, world-class academic experience, Carvalho said.
The plan eliminates redundancies and duplication of services, streamlines directives and initiatives, provides greater focus on instruction and academic programs and promotes accountability. It also focuses efforts on the shared goal of ensuring that all students are prepared to thrive and succeed in college, career and life.
The plan uses a three-phased approach beginning this school year, consolidating the six Local Districts into four Regional Offices to improve support for neighborhood schools. While schools and families will not experience immediate changes this school year, the new alignment will enable the district to increase coherence, clarify strategy and messaging, and better align resources that can be reinvested to support schools. The approach is intended to bring about greater efficiency and effectiveness through need-based, standardized staffing.
“Through efficiencies and strategic configurations, the new alignment is expected to result in approximately $40 million in savings that can be reinvested in preparing our students to be ready for the world,” Carvalho said.
In the Central Office, personnel functions and business practices will be streamlined to increase effectiveness. A new chief eco-sustainability officer will oversee efforts to increase the district’s role in combatting climate change. A deaf and hard of hearing coordinator will oversee DHH programs and foster a more inclusive district. A chief of compliance and audits will conduct performance audits of district programs.
