LAUSD's Latest Strategic Roadmap Overview

LAUSD's four key strategies to help ensure students graduate college-prepared and career-ready are: Data-Based Instruction, Supporting All Employees, Budgeting for Student Achievement, and Creating and Supporting Quality Schools.

NEW School Performance Framework

The School Performance Framework (SPF) is used to evaluate school performance in terms of student achievement using a variety of measures, both status and growth related. The overall goal of the SPF is to:

  • Support and improve overall student learning and achievement;
  • Provide the most complete and comprehensive picture of how schools in LAUSD are performing; and
  • Assist teachers and school site leaders in setting school goals that are aligned with the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SMART Goals).

Please visit the School Performance Framework page to learn more about how the SPF works and each school's performance classification.
