Welcome to LAUSD's Budget Realities Website

Here you will find up to date information on the District’s budget, and the ongoing challenges we face. Each year since 1985, California's spending on public education has declined from the national average.  Today, California schools rank at the bottom of almost every national ranking in terms of spending and supports for children.

As requested by the LAUSD Board of Education, town hall meetings will be held across the District to increase understanding  of the State of California and LAUSD budgets, and to gather community input on the priorities LAUSD should invest in.
