LAUSD was founded in the year 1961. The organisation has been active for almost 58 years now. The LAUSD was once composed of two separate districts, namely - Los Angeles City High School District and Los Angeles City School District. In the year 1961, these two districts merged, and therefore LAUSD was formed as well. In the year 1970, the teachers working in the organisation demanded a pay increase from $13,650 to $20,000. Due to this reason, there was a five weeks strike and the strike ended after just 23 days. The teachers had received a 5 per cent pay rise as well. In the year 1989, the organisation also faced strikes for higher pay rise as well. This was followed by protestations in the year 2009 and also in the year 2018 as well.
When it comes to the uniforms or the standardised dress codes, since the year 1995, almost the same dress code is used in all of the elementary and middle schools, as well as some high schools as well. In the year 2008, due to the economic shortfall, the organisation deployed consultants. The organisation was also criticised in the year 2008 when the Los Angeles Times accused the organisation of having less involvement with the police, and thus it made the thieves and criminals to target the schools as well. The organisation started a new payroll system in the year 2004, with the help of Deloitte Consulting. But it was also criticised later because some teachers were allegedly being overpaid and some were being underpaid as well. Then in the year 2013, the organisation had approved a $1.3 billion deal with Apple and Pearson PLC in order to integrate iPads into schools, with each teacher, student and administrator having an iPad. The program was abandoned within a year by just spending $30 million because the people were not accustomed using the iPad user interface. Afterwards, the contract was settled by paying $6.4 million. The headquarters of the organisation is based in 333 S Beaudry Avenue. The name of the place is Los Angeles, while the name of the state is California, USA. The pin code of the area is 90017.
LAUSD is an American organisation that focuses on the creation and maintenance of the largest public school systems in California, USA, and the second largest in the whole of the USA. The organisation currently has more than 1,140 schools under its name. As of the current date, the total amount of budget of the organisation yearly is more than $7.5 billion. The number of students reading in schools is more than 734,600, while the number of teachers is more than 26,500. As of the year 2007, the drop out rates of the organisation for standards 9 and 12 is 26 per cent.
The primary services provided by the organisation include running the operations of the various schools that are entrusted under the organisation, along with their maintenance and also meeting their demands as well.
