The Board of Education voted Tuesday to extend the contract of Superintendent Michelle King for two years, until 2020.

Los Angeles Unified School District officials said there were no other changes to King’s contract, which pays her an annual salary of $350,000.


“I am grateful to the board for its confidence in our ongoing effort to provide a high-quality education so that all of our students are prepared for success when they graduate,” King said.

King became superintendent of the LAUSD in January 2016.

Board President Steve Zimmer said King’s “accomplishments as superintendent demonstrate that L.A. Unified is on the right track and headed toward `Destination Graduation.”‘

“The superintendent has lifted our district to important new heights,” Zimmer continued. “She has united students, families, employees, labor partners and community partners in setting ambitious priorities that underscore our belief that all students can and will achieve the American Dream.”
