The fundamentals of school transformation are as important as ever. As we face a new future of public schooling brought about by a global pandemic and embrace the innovations to come, we believe that maintaining a focus on developing interconnected systems – around curriculum, family engagement, school culture, and more – must remain a priority for system leaders. Launched in February 2020, the Partnership Playbook outlines how to build these systems within and around schools to accelerate equity for low-income students and students of color.
We are implementing a sustainable transformation model across 19 high-need district schools, while influencing large-scale, systemic changes in LA Unified, the state of California, and beyond.
