On Monday, LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner announced the district will provide the subsidy “for employees who have childcare issues and help ensure the appropriate staffing of schools as they reopen.”
According to the announcement, the district – the second largest in the country – will provide “full-time employees with a $500-a-month subsidy for each child age 5 and younger who is enrolled in a childcare program.”
The subsidy is offered to all district full-time employees, including custodial staff and bus drivers,
