Meeting 17
November 7-8,2011
Long Beach, CA

The California Collaborative on District Reform convened for the seventeenth time on November 7th and 8th, 2011 in Long Beach. The group examined Linked Learning as an approach to developing college and career readiness so that all students can achieve postsecondary success. Members discussed school and district level actions important for carrying out a Linked Learning approach at scale, then expanded to address the external partnerships and policy supports that can best enable a systemic approach to Linked Learning. All meeting participants received a briefing book which included resources and literature on college and career readiness, the specific approach of Linked Learning, and considerations for school systems, external partnerships, and issues of equity in pursuing a Linked Learning approach; these resources are available below.
