LA Schools Chief's Contract Extended by Two Years

It's always nice when you hear the bosses want to keep you around for the next two years. Superintendent Michelle King got that kind of good news after the Los Angeles Board of Education voted to extend her contract until 2020.

The LAUSD officials said there were no changes to King's contract which entitles her to an annual salary of $350,000 per year. 

King became superintendent of the LAUSD in January 2016.

“I am grateful to the board for its confidence in our ongoing effort to provide a high-quality education so that all of our students are prepared for success when they graduate,” King said after Tuesday’s vote.

Board President Steve Zimmer said King had put LA Unified on the right track and headed toward 'Destination Graduation.'

“The superintendent has lifted our district to important new heights,” Zimmer continued. “She has united students, families, employees, labor partners and community partners in setting ambitious priorities that underscore our belief that all students can and will achieve the American Dream.”
