LAUSD to investigate affordable housing for its employees

LOS ANGELES >> As part of an effort to attract and retain teachers and other school employees, officials for the Los Angeles Unified School District announced on Wednesday, June 9, an initiative to provide 2,000 affordable housing units so employees can live in the communities where they work.

District officials have not made any final determinations about where the affordable units might be built, but they will be considering properties LAUSD owns that are unused or underutilized.

“As we look to recruit the next generation of talent to work in our schools, we have to understand for them to live and work in the communities they serve, they have to be able to afford it,” Superintendent Austin Beutner said during a news conference outside Norwood Learning Village, one of three previous LAUSD workforce housing projects.
