Community: Got Questions?

How do I remove my phone number from the District's automated call centers?

The District has a special phone number to use to report errant numbers listed with our call centers: please call 213 241-0875 to report the problem. You may be directed to leave your information with a message service; if so, please do so, and the number should be removed within 48 hours.

Since automated calls may come directly from a school as well as from our central call centers, It is always a good idea to contact the school directly if you know which school has your number in their system. To find a list of schools in your neighborhood along with their contact information, use our school finder where you can search by zip code.


Where do I report Waste, Fraud, and Abuse?

Concerns of waste, fraud, and abuse should be reported to Office of the Inspector General.


How do I obtain a Civic Permit?

The major function of the Civic Center Permit Office is the issuance of the appropriate permit to allow for the use of school facilities in conformance with the California Education Code mandate and the Board of Education rules, which require that each and every public school facility be made available as a civic center to members of the community and non-profit organizations for supervised recreational activities, meetings and public discussions, when regular school activities are not disrupted.

How do I Sign Up to Speak at a Board Meeting?

Beginning with the November 2009 meetings, a new process for speaking at Board Meetings has been implemented. Please note:

Does the LAUSD Rank Its Schools?

No. The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) does not rank its schools. The Accountability Progress Report (APR) from the California Department of Education provides schools and school districts with information about their annual progress on the state Academic Performance Index (API) and their results on the federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) report.
