The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) has proudly served as the sponsoring organization of the Los Angeles County Teachers of the Year Program—an honors competition that spotlights excellence in public education. The county program, the largest in the state, is part of the California and National Teacher of the Year programs. Each year, LACOE recognizes all district-level Teachers of the Year, including the one LBUSD Teacher of the Year (TOY) winner.
LBUSD has established its own internal process for selecting one exemplary teacher to compete in the County program. LACOE allows one nominee from LBUSD. The timeline below reflects the LBUSD TOY Program information for this school year.
