Statement from Superintendent Michelle King on loss of life from shootings

The thoughts, prayers and condolences of L.A. Unified are with families who have lost loved ones — those in uniform, as well as those in communities — because of recent shootings across the nation.

We must remain resolute in our commitment to keeping our students and schools safe. Every school and building in L.A. Unified has a safety plan. We are assigning pairs of L.A. Unified School police officers to cover campuses that are participating in summer programs.

Violence and discrimination of any kind is unacceptable, and we must remain vigilant in keeping our L.A. Unified family safe and united.
