The California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) congratulates Austin Beutner on his appointment as the new Superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District (L.A. Unified). We commend the L.A. Unified Board of Education for selecting a local leader who possesses the experience and skills to navigate the significant challenges facing the District and Los Angeles education community. Now is the time for everyone invested in public education to work together towards policy solutions that put kids first. CCSA and our members, who serve more 110,000 Los Angeles public school students, are committed to working alongside Mr. Beutner, the L.A. Unified Board, staff, and other stakeholders to ensure that all children and families have access to the high-quality public education they deserve.
