In addition to Zamora, four other candidates have qualified for the ballot in the newly redrawn LAUSD Board District 2. If Maria Brenes or Miguel Angel Segura, a former member of convicted felon Ref Rodriguez's staff, are elected, they are predicted to canvass with the block of board members supported by the charter school industry. Rocio Rivas is supportive of public education and is endorsed by Network for Public Education Action, Parents Supporting Teachers, and UTLA.

The primary will be held on June 7, 2022.
