The La Jolla Cluster Association (LJCA) is a 501(c)3 organization made up of parents, teachers, and principals from the five La Jolla public schools. Our goal is to promote and support excellence in education in all La Jolla public schools. The LJCA works collaboratively to meet the needs of our diverse student population in grades TK-12 by implementing community based school reform in collaboration with SDUSD. Cluster board meetings are held every month and are open to all stakeholders.
The San Diego County public health order requires all school districts, charter schools, and private schools serving grades TK–12 to report the following information for each school site and school district, if applicable, to the San Diego County Office of Education on or before the second and fourth Monday of each month
