LAUSD 2022-26 Strategic Plan
Ready for the World!
For the next four years, Los Angeles Unified will focus on a singular goal: ensure ALL our students graduate READY FOR THE WORLD – to thrive in college, career, and life. This Strategic Plan represents a promise to our entire Los Angeles Unified community that we will achieve this goal. With this plan, we are establishing a new, inspiring vision on how we can improve student achievement and close opportunity gaps. We believe that by outlining a singular goal, and a vision for achieving this goal, we can ensure that everyone who is a part of Los Angeles Unified will be able to support and uplift our district together.

Our Mission and Vision
After listening to our community and holding up our District Goals as our primary drivers, we have developed the following Mission, Vision, and Theory of Action to outline, respectively, why we do what we do, where we want to go, and how we believe we will get there.
Theory of Action
I'M READY FOR THE WORLD!
The Strategic Plan
To effectively implement this Theory of Action, the District has proposed five high-level Pillars that represent critical areas we will focus on over the next four years. Each Pillar contains several Priorities we believe are required to successfully support the pillar, as well as Measures of Success and associated targets so we can gauge our progress in meeting our goals. Strategies are specific actions we can take at the school site or at the District and community levels to advance these priorities and help us meet our targets.
The five Pillars of the Strategic Plan are:
