LESD Board of Trustees

The LESD Board of Education is comprised of five duly elected trustees who serve four-year terms. Each Board member has successfully completed the California School Boards Association Masters in Governance Program.The Lawndale Elementary School District Governing Board encourages citizens to attend School Board meetings, and welcomes their views on pertinent subjects.

During Covid-19 closures, regular public meetings of the LESD Board are held Thursday at 5:00 PM (except where noted).

Agendas are posted online at least 72 hours before each meeting. Minutes of the previous meetings can be found here.

  • You may address the Board on any item listed on the agenda. Refer to Board Bylaw 9323.

  • To join the virtual board meeting or make a Public Comment, please complete the Google Form here by 4:30 PM the day of the board meeting. Log-on information will be emailed to you the day of the board meeting.

At no time may any person orally present or discuss charges or complaints against any individual employee that are of personal nature. Unless the meeting is specifically designated as a public hearing, a Board Meeting is not a public meeting (open forum), it is a meeting of the Board in public.

Your presence is valued, and it gives evidence of your concern and interest in helping the Lawndale Elementary School District attain its ultimate goals of excellence in public education for all children in our community.

For further questions or information, please contact the Superintendent’s office at 310-973-1300 Ext. 50002.
