The district has also stated that “Based on a preliminary analysis of critical business systems, employee healthcare and payroll are not impacted, nor has the cyber incident impacted safety and emergency mechanisms in place at schools.” However, if you experience any issues or have questions, contact the district hotline at 213-443-1300. If the issues cannot be addressed, please contact SEIU Local 99 by completing this inquiry form or calling our Member Resource Center at 213-637-0296.

To address the issue of cyber-security in the long term, the district has stated that they will set-up a task force to review the current IT operation and have additional staff and resources available. SEIU Local 99 members are part of the IT Team at LAUSD and share in the concern over cyber-security. We look forward to working with the district to be part of discussions and plans to improve the Information Technology systems at LAUSD.
