LOS ANGELES (Dec. 10, 2016) – The Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education voted today on a resolution to promote, celebrate and replicate successful schools across L.A. Unified. It is the goal of the board to showcase its high performing schools that offer academically rigorous programs.
“The movement toward 100 percent graduation in Los Angeles is a model for the nation on collaboration and partnership with students, families, educators, employees, schools and community partners. As trustees for our children’s education, we are responsible for strengthening the bridges into our district and beyond our district for our college and career ready graduates and accelerating success for all,” said School Board Member Mónica García. “Today, we reaffirm our commitment to every child in Los Angeles in our search for partnership and investment for the schools our students deserve.”
Since last year, the board has been on a quest to promote its successful programs within the District with various resolutions such as: “Believing in Our Schools Again,”
Equity on A-G: Reaffirming Our Commitment to A-G Life Preparation for All,” “Zero Dropouts in LAUSD,” and “Excellent Public Education for Every Student.”
“This resolution demonstrates that LAUSD and the Board of Education are committed to developing a portfolio of innovative and homegrown district programs that serve all students,” said Board Member Dr. Ref Rodriguez. “Due to this district’s limited resources, we cannot do this work alone. We call on our external partners, community organizations, and businesses to invest in the replication of our successful district programs. Together, we will move forward toward achieving our goals that all students will graduate from high school, successfully complete A-G requirements, and excel in college and beyond.”
The District aims to continue developing successful school models and to identify the best strategies such as Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math courses, targeted magnets and academies.
