Pathways Improvement Scope

Thirty LAUSD Linked Learning high schools orient students to their career pathways through transition year summer bridge programs. The SWP grant will be used to implement three cohorts of 9th and 10th grade summer bridge with the goal to create a true pipeline to career. Adding the community college partnership will introduce post secondary to LAUSD students at a younger age in hopes to increase the number of students enrolling in and completing career aligned certificates by HS graduation.

Goals & Priorities

The district K-12 Workforce plan goals that correspond are: will create cross-cutting bridge programs for LAUSD Linked Learning Pathways, analyze pathway demographic and completion data to improve pathway enrollment and completion, make meaningful connections to community college and industry (through recognized credentials and certificates, work-based learning, and college transition services), will strive to Embed CTE content into the core content classes through teacher training and collaboration, and build on existing partnerships to explore industry mentorship programs and to contextualize soft skills into the CTE curriculum.
