LAUSD celebrates all cultures – our students, families and employees represent a diverse range of culture and heritage. In all, there are more than 90 languages other than English spoken in LAUSD schools, representing the rich diversity of the greater Los Angeles area.
From Sept. 15 – Oct. 15 and throughout the year, join LAUSD in celebrating the vibrant and historical tributes of Latino heritage and culture during Latino Heritage Month.
Nationally known as “Hispanic Heritage Month,” the celebration started as “Hispanic Heritage Week” to celebrate Latinos, their culture, and history, in 1968 by President Lyndon Johnson. It was expanded to a month-long celebration by President Ronald Reagan and enacted into law in 1988.
