KBRA Releases New Comment: "Bondholders Protected from Budget Pain Caused by LAUSD Teachers' Strike"

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases a commentary concerning Los Angeles Unified School District and its ongoing labor contract negotiations titled "Bondholders Protected from Budget Pain Caused by LAUSD Teachers' Strike."

This is the first week of the 2019 school calendar for over 500,000 K-12 students in the Los Angeles Unified School District (the "District" or LAUSD), but their teachers may be going on strike as early as January 10.

KBRA has issued a commentary addressing the topic, which lays out the District's projected financial impact after factoring in some of the United Teachers Los Angeles' demands.

KBRA continues to monitor developments in the negotiation and notes that LAUSD's outstanding general obligation bonds are secured by a pledge of voter-approved dedicated unlimited ad valorem property tax of the District in an amount sufficient to pay debt service.
