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.
Administrative Aide | Chatsworth, CA | Feb 18, 2021
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.
ConsEverything else.

District validation review parent representative | Los Angeles, CA | Jul 13, 2019
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.

What benefits does Los Angeles Unified School District offer?
Asked Jul 10, 2016
LAUSD has one of the best in benefits. When I had my daughter, I was in the hospital for 3 days and I didn't pay a co-pay or anything. Also, when I was hospitalized for an exploding appendix's it only cost me the Emergency room- $100.00 and I was in the hospital for awhile. Also, if you have a surgery it would be covered and free to you. You can't beat that. Hope, that helps somebody.
