Education of the people

07 12 11_7927

The Los Angeles County Office of Education, LACOE, is located across the street from the new Kaiser hospital on Imperial Hwy. This building is the main office for the Los Angeles County Board of Education but it also houses many of the departments that serve the districts within LA County.

Payroll handles over 100,000 checks each month, Technology Training educates teachers to use technology in the classrooms and the Retirement department makes sure that every employee correctly receives the retirement benefits they have earned. The main goal though, no matter the department, is “education of the people” of the Los Angeles County.

  1. I didn't realize that there was such a thing as the Los Angeles County School District until my wife's girlfriend went to work for them about 35 years ago. She had a master degree in Audiology from UCSB. She would go around to the different school districts in Los Angeles County and test children's hearing. She could fit them with a hearing aid if needed.
