Training Program & Labor Resource

In recognition of the size and complexity of the District's school construction program, the Board of Education entered into a Project Stabilization Agreement (PSA) to ensure labor stability and to maximize local economic benefits through a 50% Local Worker participation goal. This ambitious Local Worker participation objective is the guiding principle for the "We Build" Program.

The "We Build" Program provides local District residents with an opportunity to enroll in a comprehensive, ten-week pre-apprenticeship training offered at seven LAUSD Division of Adult and Career Education Occupational/Skills Centers and through its partnership with the Century Community Training Program (CCTP) and other community-based training programs. Upon completion "We Build" graduates will be competitively positioned to enroll in Union Apprenticeship Training Programs and placement on LAUSD construction projects. Use this link to learn more about the "We Build" Program.

Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE)

The LAUSD supports the State of California's DVBE participation goal of 5%. To be certified as a DVBE, a business must be at least 51% owned by one or more disabled veterans, have its daily operations managed and controlled by one or more disabled veterans, and have its home office located in the United States. The LAUSD will accept the State of California, Department of General Services DVBE certification for participation as an SBE contractor for District construction bids.
