Mission Statement

The Partnership for LA Schools is a non-profit organization focused on turning around LA’s lowest performing public schools and on piloting innovations that can be scaled across the Los Angeles Unified School District, (LAUSD).

Description

Launched in 2008, the Partnership is a collaboration of LAUSD, the City of Los Angeles and the philanthropic sector, and today it serves more than 15,000 students across 17 campuses in Watts, Boyle Heights and South LA. The Partnership is the same size as the Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Malibu school districts combined, and is one of the largest public school turnaround initiatives in the nation. Last year, the Partnership schools outperformed the district and state in every subject area covered by the California Standards Tests, (CSTs). Moreover, the Partnership was the # 1 improving mid- to large-size school district in the state last year, the year before that, and over the last five years according to the Academic Performance Index, (API).
