Statement on New L.A. Unified Superintendent

Great Public Schools Now Executive Director Myrna Castrejón Statement on Appointment of Austin Beutner as next L.A. Unified Superintendent

May 1, 2018 (Los Angeles, CA)- On behalf of Great Public Schools Now, I congratulate Austin Beutner on his appointment as the next superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District. As a distinguished Angeleno, he has a long history of working to improving civic life in Los Angeles, from serving as deputy mayor to advocating for immigrant students through his support of DACA, and bridging philanthropy with the needs of LAUSD students.  He is uniquely well-positioned to solve the challenges the district is facing while also helping L.A. Unified’s many successful programs continue to grow.

We look forward to working with Supt. Beutner to help all children have an equal opportunity at a great education.
