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 members of the community to attend School Board meetings, and welcomes their views on pertinent subjects.
Board Meetings
Agendas are posted online at least 72 hours before each meeting. Minutes of the previous meetings can be found here. Regular public meetings of the LESD Board are held Thursday at 6:00 PM (except where noted).

Board Agenda Public Comments: We are doing our part to help in the reduction of the spread of COVID-19. Public comments will be allowed as required by law. You may address the Board on any item listed on the agenda or on non agenda items. Refer to Board Bylaw 9323.
  • Beginning October 7, 2021 at 6:00 PM, all public comments will be made in-person at the district office. A face covering is required at all times while visiting the Lawndale Elementary School District located at 4161 W. 147th Street, Lawndale CA 90260.
At no time may any person orally present or discuss charges or complaints against any individual employee that are of a 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.
