SAN FRANCISCO — The Los Angeles Unified School District plans to sell $1.8 billion of general obligation bonds next week, forging ahead with one of the nation’s most ambitious school building plans as it cuts hundreds of millions of dollars from its operating budget.

The nation’s second-largest school district will sell the bonds in two offerings, with about a third as tax-exempt debt and about two-thirds taxable Build America Bonds, according to rating reports. The exact proportions will be set as the bonds price Feb. 17 and 18.
