The Alder Graduate School of Education teacher residency program is based on a model that combines immersive hands-on practice in the classroom with educational theory and research. In collaboration with the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, Alder’s teacher residents will be assigned to LA Unified schools within the Partnership’s network.
In November 2021, the Partnership announced the launch of a new $4-million college scholarship program that will support 80 Partnership students over the next eight years with their higher education. The financial support can be used for tuition and housing expenses. Students from all five Partnership high schools will be eligible for the Fellowship.
In October 2021, we released a policy brief entitled, “What Families of English Learners Say Their Students Need: Five Policy and Practice Implications.” While all students in California have been impacted by the pandemic, we know from experience that the past year surfaced unique challenges and needs for English learners, and we believe it is vital to listen and respond with supports that are rooted in their lived experiences.
