In Alignment with the Student-Focused Goals of the 100-Day and Strategic Plans, the 2022-23 Budget Prioritizes $1.9 Billion in Targeted Investments to Bolster Academic Achievement and Support Employees
Los Angeles, CA (June 14, 2022) – Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho presented the proposed 2022-23 budget to the Los Angeles Unified Board of Education today for consideration. The District’s nearly $18.5 billion budget unveils significant increases resulting in $1.9 billion in new investments that reinforce our commitment to academic excellence, joy and wellness and supporting students and employees by providing equity-based funding, social emotional learning, school greening and outdoor education, expanded learning opportunities, tutoring services, dual language programs, parent engagement, staff professional development and school safety and security.
“The 2022-23 budget addresses the District’s most pressing issues while reaffirming our longstanding commitment to providing communities throughout all 710 square miles with a nurturing environment,” Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho said. “We remain vigilant and will ensure we most effectively and efficiently allocate recurring and non-recurring resources.”
This year’s budget reflects Los Angeles Unified’s dedication to supporting our highly effective workforce, building toward long-term fiscal sustainability and protecting taxpayers’ investments.
“I am honored to present this budget as we finalize our work on the 100-Day Plan and prepare to introduce our forthcoming Strategic Plan,” Superintendent Carvalho continued. “These proposed financial investments will align with the work we are doing to inspire unparalleled student achievement.”
The Board of Education is scheduled to vote on the proposed budget at the June 21 meeting.
