LAUSD expects to finish reassigning staff to vacant teaching roles this week

Redeployed staff will remain in the classroom for the remainder of the school year

Los Angeles Unified is temporarily reassigning staff to 420 vacant classrooms across the district.

The move comes as part of Superintendent Alberto Carvalho’s 100-day plan, which flagged the shortage of teachers as an issue he would address within the first few months as superintendent following his arrival in February.

LAUSD has successfully redeployed staff to half of the vacant positions flagged with the intention of finalizing all the reassignments by Friday, Carvalho said.

The staff will remain in those positions through the end of the school year, although Carvalho said there is still a possibility that the district will need to rely on temporary assignments for the beginning of the new school year. Click here to read more:
