Message from the Director

    Director José Cole-Gutiérrez

    On behalf of the Los Angeles Unified School District's Charter Schools Division, welcome to our website! We hope it serves as a center of helpful and reliable information about our diverse portfolio of charter schools and the work our office does to ensure every child has access to a safe, high quality education. The information included is designed to give you an overview and help understand our role in reviewing new charter school petitions, overseeing existing charter schools, analyzing renewal petitions, and sharing promising practices, among other very important items.

    Please click on our School Directories link to view the entire list of LAUSD-authorized charter schools, and, for your quick reference, each school has the contact information for our staff member assigned to each school for oversight purposes.  

    Again, thank you for visiting our site.


    José Cole-Gutiérrez,
