LA School Board Salaries Nearly Triple to $125,000

The Los Angeles Unified School Board has received a hefty 174 percent pay increase.

A seven-member committee confirmed the pay increase from $45,637 annually to $125,000, citing the copious amount of work the members do for the state’s largest school district.

The LAUSD Board of Education Compensation Review Committee Is comprised of appointees for outside the district, with two appointed by L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and another two appointed by Council President Herb Wesson.

To put the salaries in perspective, Superintendent Michelle King receives $350,000 a year.

However, the pay increase comes on the heels of the board approving mass layoffs in the district to fit a shrinking budget.
