Alliance College-Ready Public Schools: Alice M. Baxter College-Ready High School
The largest charter organization in Los Angeles serving more than 11,000 low-income students aims to prove it is possible to educate students at high levels across an entire system of schools. Alliance College-Ready Public Schools developed the PACE blended learning model, launched at the new Baxter High School, to more effectively prepare its students to persist in college. PACE addresses three challenges to college completion for its alumni: insufficient academic rigor in high school, lack of self-direction and time management skills, and financial pressures. The two-page grantee profiles from Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) provide factual information about the secondary school and postsecondary degree program designs awarded grants under NGLC's third and fourth waves of funding, which focused on two areas, "Breakthrough Models for College Readiness" and "Breakthrough Models for College Completion." The profiles describe what makes each model "breakthrough" and express both visually and through at-a-glance details the academic and organizational models, student demographics, hardware and software choices, and contact info. These profiles serve to illustrate the innovations of these new blended and online models, with practical details of interest to those starting a new school or degree program.
