Superintendents Graphic

The Superintendent provides leadership to and general oversight over all District departments and school sites. LUSD's 49 school sites provide high quality education to a diverse student population of 29,000 students.  The success of our endeavors can be credited to the collaborative efforts involving school personnel, administration, students, parents and community members.

Thank you for visiting the webpage for the Superintendent's Office! According to recent statistics, American households have moved well beyond "surfing" the Internet. Many families now utilize the Internet as their primary source of information. LUSD has responded to this trend, by enhancing our website to provide useful tools that enable parents, students, staff and community members access to current and practical information about our individual schools, departments and the Board of Education.
