Overall Reviews at Los Angeles Unified School District
Your work experience will truly depend upon how well you get along with your administrator.
Relationship building is key. I have been blessed to develop relationships with staff, parents & families. So, it feels as though we are one big family.
Production-driven environment leading to successful practice.
It was interesting dealing with the Architects-Designers, the school principals and the LAUSD management team. They were the source of my achievement.
ProsUnderstanding and empowerment, I am grateful.
ConsBureaucracy is not always a negative approach to management.
LAUSD was an MSW Internship
LAUSD was an MSW Internship placement, where I gained and enhanced my knowledge as a future Social Worker. The school and staff was very nice and kind
Productive and fun working place’
Managing classes in a elementary school setting was a great opportunity to apply my computer skills , and classroom management!

Teachers were very helpful and friendly! My supervisor was very helpful an flexible to all mr requests at the time!
ProsFree lunches ! Part of the Union
ConsSmall term assignments due to grants deductions!
Good school district
Worked in the early education division, at the early education centers. Was a good place to gain work experience. Started as a substitute aid and was hired for a permanent position in less then a year.
Money driven over student well-being.
LAYSD cares very little about the students' well-being, or about its staff. The only people who benefit are upper management, who push their own agendas, political opinions and personal interests ahead of anyone else's.
ProsBenefits for F/T employees.
coordinator for trash
The contacts were very pleasant and friendly. Works well with outside companies. I would recommend for everyone to work for them. I really enjoyed working for them.
My Work Day
I've had a variety of assignments that have allowed me to grow professionally, emotionally and intellectually. The teachers allowed me to bring my field into the classroom.
too much politics
Lot of personnel turnover and unstable work environment, like way too many school districts in California. huge power struggle at the top management level.
Proscommunity service oriented
Constoo political within

It was nice to work with special Ed. Administration that personally provide guidance to onsite school admin.
The workload is big. It takes people with caring hearts to do the job right. It is not easy to deal with a lot of files and go home and forget about them. To work for the district and perform for the good of the children takes a lot of passion because it's not easy.
