Establish and refine systems to recruit students to Los Angeles Unified schools through targeted, community-based initiatives

Develop toolkits and resources for schools and District offices to support effective student recruitment efforts

Improve data-informed decisions to expand learning options such as magnet, dual language, specialized career pathway programs, Schools for Advanced Studies, and virtual and independent learning options, based on student needs

Expand and streamline transportation opportunities to promote equitable access of District resources


By 2026, we will:
