Last week, Los Angeles Unified School District’s Hollenbeck Middle School became the first in the nation to achieve Linked Learning Middle School Certification. Educators, families, students, industry partners, and district leaders gathered to honor this momentous accomplishment.
Leaders from the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) and the Linked Learning Alliance joined elected officials and industry partners in congratulating three educational pathways for achieving Linked Learning Gold certification.
As pathways, schools, and districts leverage Linked Learning to engage and anchor students learning and their postsecondary aspirations, the Linked Learning Alliance is here to help. In this three-part series, we will be highlighting resources that can support your college and career pathway journey in the three main categories: integrated program of study, work-based learning, and integrated student supports.
The Linked Learning Alliance has set a goal: 1 million students in Linked Learning certified pathways by 2030. This goal reflects the critical role certification plays in the Linked Learning movement. When pathways begin their certification journey, they underscore the revolutionary change taking place in their high school, and schools around the country. Scaling Linked Learning through certification shows how real, relevant opportunities to explore industry through work-based learning, authentic assessment, and integrated curricula in a supportive academic environment can change the trajectory of a young person’s future.
The Linked Learning Alliance is pleased to announce that STEM Academy of Boyle Heights in Los Angeles Unified School District has achieved Linked Learning Gold certification. This is a national distinction that recognizes the highest quality integrated college and career pathways for their exemplary efforts to prepare students for the full range of postsecondary opportunities.
