Statement from Superintendent Michelle King on the Passing of Dr. Judy Ivie Burton

May 23, 2017


Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of Dr. Judy Ivie Burton, who brought enthusiasm, love and high expectations to the thousands of lives she touched every day. She was an inspirational educator and leader at L.A. Unified, and her legacy is reflected in the success of her students.

I am especially grateful for her leadership as an associate superintendent and, more recently, as the voluntary chair of our Instructional Technology Initiative. Dr. Burton was a great friend and colleague, and her passing is an incredible loss to us all.
