Collaborating for Equity: A Scan of the Los Angeles Educational Ecosystem. Full Report
Potochnik, Tracie; Romans, Angela N.
Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University
Los Angeles has an educational ecosystem that is rich with partners committed to providing equitable access to learning opportunities for students. Throughout the 2014-2015 school year, the "Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University" (AISR) spent time meeting with a range of partners, including the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), and consistently heard a need and desire to work and learn across three major approaches that have taken root in several of the district's schools and neighborhoods: community schools, Linked Learning, and Promise Neighborhoods. The goals of this scan were to: (1) advance discussions about the commonalities in vision and goals across these three approaches; (2) highlight the systems, practices, and structures that are in place to support these approaches at the district and community levels; and (3) identify where there are gaps or needs for further support system-wide. This work was designed to complement the national "Time for Equity" project, which includes case studies of teacher knowledge, ownership, and leadership of the three approaches in Los Angeles schools. The authors hope that this scan has succeeded in surfacing shared lessons and priorities that will inform leaders of partner organizations and LAUSD how to better align, support, and expand these approaches systemically and maximize their impact across LAUSD. The authors also hope it will provide funders with valuable information about how they can best continue to support equitable educational opportunities in Los Angeles. Appended to the report is: Ecosystem Partner Organizations.
