Overall Reviews at Los Angeles Unified School District

Owner/Manager | Los Angeles, CA | Nov 19, 2019
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
Teacher's Aide | Los Angeles, CA | Nov 17, 2019
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.
Customer Service Representative | Los Angeles, CA | Feb 10, 2020
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.
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.
Student Intern | Wilmington, CA | Feb 25, 2019
Very good collaboration and support from supervisors
Supervisors were very helpful, knowledgeable, accessible and willing to listen and support me as a time and attendance counselor and as a psychiatric social worker in both LAUSD internships in 2018.
ProsGreat collaboration and support
ConsEnd of internships
School Teacher | Los Angeles, CA | Jan 14, 2020
Substitute Teacher
Very limited at times and you can find yourself financially stressed when jobs are not available. It is very important that you have another job because this will not provide enough money to survive in Los Angeles. Too inconsistent.
ProsHealth Care
ConsConsistent work and pay
Mulholland MS Junior Police Academy Magnet, Grades | California | Jul 30, 2018
Working in LAUSD is like working while on a roller coaster, you never know what to expect. District mandates change regularly. Administrators are very unsupportive of developing outstanding teachers.
Mathematics Teacher | Los Angeles, CA | Sep 6, 2019
Challlenging and Formative
Though I decided to leave the company, I learned all I know about teaching in the classrooms of LAUSD. I will greatly miss its students, teachers and administrators.
Career Advisor | Los Angeles, CA | Aug 17, 2019
Great District to work for
Great school District to work for. Great benefits and good pay. One has an opportunity to help students everyday. It feels incredible to make a positive difference.

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.
