September 2020 Community Schools News

Den 1 Back to School Artwork, Ms. Gallardo’s Class

The 2020-21 school year is underway and we are pleased to highlight how community schools are seizing the current moment to transform teaching and learning. We celebrate the first class of seniors at the Mann UCLA Community School and share their experience learning mathematics throughout high school. Our longstanding partnership with UCLA’s oldest student-run philanthropy, UniCamp, is responding to the need for enriched learning by putting camp in a box! We also share a recent presentation by educators on preparing a racially just and culturally responsive return to school and a powerful commentary on how K-12 model schools can address social, economic, and educational inequality for Black students across the University of California system.
