Districts & Schools

Los Angeles County is home to 80 public school districts that serve 1.3 million elementary through high school students.

Our school districts and community partners take a multi-faceted collaborative approach to ensure that all students access a high-quality public education as well as the wrap-around support services they need. Collectively, our districts employ more than 200,000 educators and operate budgets totalling $25 billion.

School district territories are overseen by the Los Angeles County Committee on School District Organization. The committee is an independent, 11-member elected body that studies and makes recommendations and decisions on such matters as:

  • transferring territory between/among school districts;
  • unifying or deunifying a school district;
  • forming new districts.
