Academic achievement is on the rise, graduation rates are increasing, and the health of the LAUSD is improving under School Board President Richard Vladovic. Thanks to Dr. Vladovic, LAUSD has increased local control funding and more innovative programs. As a lifelong educator, Dr. Vladovic is a trusted leader to get results for our children and our schools.

A hallmark of Dr. Vladovic's career is his willingness to implement innovative, effective programs and strategies that enhance both the quality and quantity of learning within the schools he represents. As a member of the Board of Education he advocates for smaller schools to ensure students receive a more personalized education. He also fights to take schools off of year-round calendars and renovate our existing schools. He is a strong advocate for student safety and works diligently to reduce drop-out rates, raise student attendance, and increase student achievement.

Some of Dr. Vladovic's other issues include fighting for environmentally safe and responsible schools, maintaining good labor relations to ensure negotiations remain child focused, championing the arts, and building and sustaining mentorship and drop-out prevention programs. He provides a strong and knowledgeable oversight to LAUSD purchasing and contracting staff, has a mastery of budget issues in aiding the district in redirecting resources directly to schools, and is an asset in labor negotiations. Throughout his career, Dr. Vladovic has been primarily concerned with student progress. To this end, he works to establish effective partnerships with elected officials, businesses, and community-based organizations to improve educational programs at school sites.
