Linked Learning Conference 2024 is just days away—and the Alliance is preparing an extraordinary slate of sessions and speakers. It all happens April 8–11, in downtown LA. Are you ready?

Connect with leading pathmakers, like San Bernardino City Unified School District.

  • Hear about the district’s journey to Linked Learning Gold certification in the session The Path to Gold: Using a Collaborative Leadership Model as a Roadmap.
  • Catch sessions that tell the story of San Andreas Continuation High School and its successful Tier 1 interventions.
  • Jorge Ruiz de Velasco, co-author of a rich report on integrated academic, career, and technical pathways at San Andreas, is a featured speaker at the conference. His session, Structuring Success for Homeless & Highly Mobile Students on the Path to Prosperity and Equity will provide strategies and recommendations to support students in greatest need.

Dig into dual enrollment to accelerate postsecondary success.

  • Multiple sessions featuring dual enrollment within Linked Learning districts, including Gold Certified pathway examples
  • Dual Enrollment 101 and working with community-based organizations to offer this approach, in two sessions led by Career Ladders Project
  • “Ask Me Anything” Q&A session led by Fast Forward California, an initiative working to ensure the effective implementation of California’s $700 million Golden State Pathways and dual enrollment programs

Get real with workforce development.
Because pathmakers know that learning experiences enriched with world-of-work relevance come alive for students and prepare the workforce needed for high-skill, high-wage, high-opportunity careers. Don't miss our plenary session led by leaders from U.S. Departments of Education and Labor, plus a host of breakout opportunities that deliver the goods on:
