The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is the second largest public school district in the country, offering an incredible variety of programs. However, for parents and guardians, the process of learning more about potential school choices for their child(ren) can feel overwhelming. The aim of this project is to make the process easier by creating a guided school matchmaking tool to assist LAUSD website users in planning a successful educational pathway for every student.
