LAUSD Linked Learning
All students will graduate as efficacious, worldly-wise, influential, and adaptable citizens prepared to succeed in their educational and career paths and to improve the quality of life in their communities.
We build the capacity of educators and community to integrate rigorous student-driven academics, career applied skills, work-based learning, and personalized supports.
Linked Learning in LAUSD is a rigorous approach to education with high expectations of every student.
Linked Learning in ACTION: Students from Miguel Contreras Business and Tourism School in Los Angeles launched a virtual tour company with help from Teacher Darrell Iki. The company exists only in the classroom and online.
ALL LINKED LEARNING
FOUR CORE COMPONENTS:
A curriculum that includes the English, mathematics, science, history, and foreign language courses that prepare students to transition, without remediation, to the state’s community colleges and universities, as well as to apprenticeships and formal employment training programs.
Students gain the knowledge and skills that can give them a head start on a successful career - right in their own classrooms.
Students are given opportunities for mentoring and job shadowing and move into intensive internships, school-based enterprises, or virtual apprenticeships.
Services such as counseling and supplemental instruction in reading, writing, and mathematics that help students master the advanced academic and technical content necessary for success in college and career.
