Tuesday is the special election to fill the school board seat in L.A. Unified’s Board District 5.
The person elected will become part of the seven-member school board that decides on policies, budget and approval of charter schools in L.A. Unified, which is the largest school district in California and second-largest in the nation.
The District 5 board member represents students enrolled in schools located in parts of the southeast of Los Angeles — including the cities of Huntington Park, Maywood, South Gate and Bell — and in neighborhoods northeast of downtown, including Highland Park, Echo Park, Silver Lake, Eagle Rock and Los Feliz.
The elected board member will complete a term expiring in December 2020.
