This is a festive month at the UCLA Community Schools.

October 2019 Newsletter

With the school year now in full swing, we are excited to share a new video released today by ABC that features three UCLA Community School alumni reflecting on their college-going journeys. Last month, we celebrated the UCLA Community School’s 10th birthday and released the school’s annual report: “Ten Years of Growing Together.” This month, we also share infographics that highlight the work of both UCLA Community School sites and a study tour that connected the schools’ work with the larger community schools movement. Finally, it is with great sadness, that we also remember one of our teachers who passed away last week.

Students at the UCLA Community Schools have been busy this summer extending their learning, making new friends, and exploring college campuses. This month, we highlight two programs along with a recent presentation of our work at the California MTSS Professional Learning Institute.

The Power of Self-Assessment Report

This report provides practitioners and researchers with an interactive roadmap that documents how educators and researchers partnered to pilot and design a community-based self-assessment system composed of self-assessment instruments (i.e., tools, assessment measures) and classroom routines (i.e., instructional practices that promote self-assessment skills) across grade-levels (grades 2 – 12).
