Meet The Candidates For LAUSD’s West Valley Seat
Voters in the West San Fernando Valley: Still trying to figure out who’s got your vote in the race for the Los Angeles Unified school board?
Scott Schmerelson is the incumbent, trying to hold onto his seat in District 3 — which covers most of the West Valley, plus Sherman Oaks and Valley Village. Schmerelson has the support of LAUSD’s teachers union, United Teachers Los Angeles.
Marilyn Koziatek is trying to unseat Schmerelson. She works in a front-office role at Granada Hills Charter High School and has the backing of the California Charter Schools Association.
