Find the latest announcements and launches from the Linked Learning Alliance here—plus reflections and insights about what’s happening across the field.
As data continues to emerge around high school graduation and college enrollment trends amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that young people are facing unprecedented challenges when it comes to postsecondary transitions. With this urgent landscape top of mind, Strada Education Network, Baltimore City Public Schools, and the Linked Learning Alliance came together at the National College Attainment Network’s 2021 Rebuilding for Postsecondary Equity Conference to discuss possible paths forward.
On October 6, 2021, Capitol Advisors and the California Department of Education joined the Linked Learning Alliance for a robust conversation with the field on the historic K-12 California budget.
October is shaping up to be a busy month here at the Linked Learning Alliance, and across our districts! We are looking forward to seeing you at upcoming workshops, webinars, and network meetings throughout the month. We're also excited to share a new set of tools and resources designed to support pathways at the school and district level from creation to continuous improvement.
Happy October, Linked Learning field! In this week’s What We’re Reading, we share articles covering COVID-19’s impact on high school graduates, computer science course access in California high schools, dual enrollment, and more. Plus, a very special video highlighting a Linked Learning teacher named Los Angeles County Teacher of the Year.
Linked Learning pathways, regardless of industry theme, are preparing young people to succeed in the workforce. Even as COVID-19 begins to recede in some of our communities, it is clear that the healthcare industry is still growing and seeking highly skilled workers that represent the communities they serve. Linked Learning is preparing young people to step into these roles, in part thanks to the example set by the Oakland Health Pathways Project.
Happy Friday! In this week’s What We’re Reading, we share articles covering how school districts successfully navigated the COVID-19 pandemic, a new fund proposed to support students as they persist through higher education, changes to the College Board CSS Profile, and more.
The Linked Learning Alliance is pleased to announce the appointment of Fred A. Jones, Jr. to the Alliance’s Board of Directors.
