Statement by Superintendent Austin Beutner

Aug. 27, 2018

We welcome Mayor Garcetti’s offer to convene a meeting with L.A. Unified and UTLA leadership to help resolve this situation and prevent a strike which will harm students, families and the communities we serve.

While the Public Employment Relations Board has set the date for mediation on September 27, 2018, as prescribed by California law, we are willing to explore any avenue which helps resolve the issues for the benefit of our students, families and communities we serve.
