County Administrator's Office

Welcome to Inglewood Unified School District
Erika F. Torres, Ed.D., MSW
County Administrator

I am pleased to welcome you to the district’s website and am delighted to be a part of the Inglewood Unified family. Prior to joining the district, I served as the Deputy Superintendent of the Los Angeles County Office of Education and have more than 20 years of experience in public education, including an extensive background in oversight of major departments and programs that promote academic achievement by addressing safety, health and academic potential of every student.

I have been working directly with Inglewood Unified since October 2018. During this time, I have been impressed with the strong, collaborative spirit that exists between our Board of Education, parents, community, staff, and students. These strong relationships are essential because it takes community-wide commitment and hard work to make sure that our schools and students are successful.

Our district has much to be proud of. Some of the remarkable strengths of this district include strong parental involvement, caring and dedicated teachers, administrators and support staff, and a district-wide focus on putting the needs of students first. In Inglewood we know the keys to our success are hard work and a strong commitment to teach relentlessly, to every child, in every classroom, in every school, every day. Regardless of our roles in the district, everyone’s job is to ensure student success. It is through our common commitment to hard work and a focus on improved student learning that we will continue to build a better future for the students and families of Inglewood.
