A Decade of Innovation

On Friday March 16th, the UCLA Center for Community Schooling and the Center for Powerful Public Schools co-released a brief commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the LAUSD Pilot Schools movement–a community-based, teacher-led, student-centered reform introduced as an alternative to charter schools in 2007. Findings were presented at an anniversary celebration held in the historic Cocoanut Grove at the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools. The UCLA Community School at RFK was one of the founding Pilot Schools in 2007. Today, there are 47 Pilot Schools across LAUSD, serving 27,046 students.
