Statement by School Board President Mónica García, on Behalf of the Los Angeles Board of Education on the Superintendent Search

Feb. 6, 2018

The Board had a very productive meeting this afternoon. The Board is committed to expediting a confidential recruitment process to attract the most qualified candidates who possess the skills needed to lead our District as the new Superintendent. 

The District is in the process of re-engaging Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates as a consultant in this search. The firm has agreed to honor the provision in their earlier agreement to perform a subsequent recruitment at no charge (save certain costs).  Approximately two years ago, the Board participated in an extensive community outreach effort for input in the selection of the Superintendent. Board members are currently reviewing this robust community input, and are also exploring additional stakeholder outreach opportunities. 

The Board will continue to meet regularly on this topic until a new Superintendent is selected.
