Local District 4 Linked Learning Initiative

About The Initiative

LAUSD's Local District 4 is currently in the process of implementing the Linked Learning reform strategy in six high school pathways. This effort, funded by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation, is supported by the foundation's nonprofit hub for innovative, educational practice, policy and research, ConnectEd. The expectation is to have four programs certified as Linked Learning pathways in 2012, with the rest to achieve that status as their programs develop.

What is Linked Learning?

Linked Learning transforms students’ high school experience by bringing together strong academics, demanding technical education, and real world experience that helps students gain an advantage in high school, postsecondary education, and careers.

Linked Learning students follow industry-themed pathways in a wide range of fields, such as engineering, arts and media, biomedicine and health. These pathways prepare high school students for career and a full range of postsecondary options, including attending a 2- or 4-year college or university, an apprenticeship, and formal employment training.
