To turn around under-performing schools and improve their academic performance, the Partnership implements a comprehensive education model that addresses key instructional, cultural and policy issues that have plagued LAUSD schools for years. Our model is focused on fundamental changes rather than incremental improvements.  We are committed to working with existing school staff and providing them with supports necessary for improving their practice.
