Los Angeles Unified School District Unique Learning SystemDownload Case Study
As the second largest district in the U.S., the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) serves 9,000 students with a wide variety of disabilities and learning needs across more than 1,200 alternate curriculum classrooms. The district was challenged with implementing a consistent special education solution to meet a wide spectrum of student needs while also providing training and support for up to 1,000 special educators. After a brief pilot with Unique Learning System, LAUSD mandated its use districtwide to ensure successful implementation. Recognizing the importance of training and teacher buy-in for such a large-scale deployment, a specialist tasked with overseeing the implementation developed a multi-pronged approach to supporting educators, including a weekly e-newsletter, webinars, monthly training sessions, weekly support group meetings and incentives such as an LCD classroom projector.
