LBUSD Vision 2035 Graduate Portrait

In the fall of 2022, the Board of Education and the Superintendent of the Long Beach Unified School District launched a community-wide collaborative process to develop a long-term vision for how the public school system will serve children from birth to 12th grade and beyond, in Long Beach. “Vision 2035: Education Reimagined in LBUSD” was developed through the collaborative design work of the Guiding Coalition—a group of 103 individuals, including students, family and community members, and district staff, selected for the diverse communities and perspectives they represent.

Vision 2035 Comprises Four Main Areas Core Values:

  1. The Graduate Portrait envisions the outcomes for students
  2. The Adult Portrait describes what all adults working in the school district need to know, be and be able to do in order to support each student’s journey toward realizing the Graduate Portrait.
  3. The System Portrait focuses on creating the conditions that will enable LBUSD students and adults to thrive and grow, guided by the Core Values.
  4. The Core Values express the principles that guide the school district’s actions in realizing the vision.
