The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools is looking for courageous and mission-driven teachers who inspire all students to see and realize their own brilliance and limitless potential.

Launched in 2007, the Partnership is a nonprofit organization that serves 13,200 students across 20 schools in the LA Unified School District (LAUSD). The Partnership is one of the largest, in-district public school transformation organizations in the U.S. We are not a charter organization and teachers in our schools are LAUSD employees.

Over the past decade, our high schools have seen their graduation rate skyrocket from 36% to 87% and college acceptances have risen by 17 percentage points from 32% in 2015 to 49% in 2020. Suspension rates across the network are at less than 1%, compared with 21% when we started our work. Learn more about us at https://partnershipla.org/.


Partnership schools are LAUSD schools, so teachers earn the same competitive pay, benefits and UTLA membership as in any LAUSD school, AND there are lots of opportunities to earn extra!


Hiring stipends of $5,000

LAUSD is offering an additional $5,000 paid over three years for newly-hired, credentialed teachers who elect to work in high needs schools for three+ years! Most Partnership schools qualify for this bonus!


National Board Certification salary increase of up to 15%

LAUSD pays teachers who hold National Board Certification up to 15% more than base salary: 7.5% in recognition of the certification and 7.5% upon completion of 92 hours of professional duties outside the normal duties and hours.


Additional paid opportunities, paid planning time, and reimbursement for relocation costs for qualified expenses are available through the Partnership.
