We commend the LAUSD board of education on the collaborative spirit of the Superintendent selection process and we are delighted with its result.
“The board conducted a thoughtful and exhaustive nationwide search, and we are confident that the selection of Michelle King represents their best judgment. She possesses the experience, talent and dedication needed to lead this district. We look forward to collaborating with King as we strive to ensure all students graduate from high school college-and-career-ready,” said David Rattray, president of UNITE-LA, which convenes the L.A. Compact.
King, who has worked in the district since 1984, has served as the district’s chief deputy superintendent since October 2014. King began her career as a life sciences teacher and followed with a variety of academic and administrative roles, including high school principal, local district superintendent and the district’s chief instructional officer for secondary schools.
