LAUSD Coaches Receive First Scholarship Upgrade in More than 20 Years

Los Angeles Unified School District coaches will receive their first coaching scholarship salary increase in more than 20 years starting in the 2021-22 school year, according to a letter signed by Anthony DiGrasia, District Director of Labor Relations, and signed by United Teachers. Los Angeles President Cecily Meart Cruz.

The letter, first published by the Daily News on Thursday, says LAUSD will increase the difference, bringing the varsity football coaches out of the $ 2,811 scholarship to $ 5,622. Basketball and baseball coaches will cost between $ 2,512 and $ 5,024.

“Historic,” said Garfield’s football coach Lorenzo Hernandez. “If true, it will attract and retain good coaches and help maintain stability.”

“This is amazing,” said Eagle Rock football coach Andy Moran, who said that in 1999 the scholarships were increased for the last time.

“It’s high time,” said Woodland Hills Taft basketball coach Derrick Taylor. “Who was president in 1999? We haven’t had a promotion since Bill Clinton. This will prevent the coaches from leaving. This could attract some young coaches. I think it’s exciting. “

On Thursday, UTLA sent out a letter of consent to its members.

The coaching scholarships will change from 2021 to 22.


LAUSD has long lost out on scholarships to other school districts and charter schools, leaving schools struggling to find and retain qualified head coaches.

Breaking the impasse for coaches and increasing their scholarships was the three-year goal of Trent Cornelius, District Athletics Coordinator. The matter has always been complicated by the fact that the teachers’ union was negotiating for the trainers, as it was at the discretion of the UTLA, and many trainers are prostitutes, not union members.

Cornelius declined to comment because he had not seen any official documents.
