LA schools to save $6.4M in reorganization 

The Los Angeles Unified School District plans to overhaul the way it oversees schools in a move intended to save $6.4 million a year and focus administrators on improving student achievement.

Superintendent John Deasy announced Thursday that the reorganization will slash the number of local administrative districts from eight to four and result in 64 fewer jobs.

The four "local education service centers" will be headed by instructional directors, who will be expected to spend at least 70 percent of their time on improving student achievement.

A new districtwide operations division will handle the bulk of non-instruction issues at schools such as maintenance.

Deasy has said that he wants to streamline district bureaucracy in order to grant schools more freedom to tailor instruction to their local students.
