History of the Coalition

Linked Learning History The Los Angeles Regional Coalition for Linked Learning was established in 2014 to align the efforts of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the business community, and education advocates.

Over time, and with the support of The James Irvine Foundation and Jobs for the Future, the Coalition grew into a more formal entity, beyond LAUSD, and included other Los Angeles County school districts such as Antelope Valley, Centinela Valley, and Pasadena.

The Coalition now consists of nearly 200 stakeholders from more than 60 organizations, including K‑12 school districts, postsecondary institutions, industry employers, intermediaries, nonprofits, and local government.  We leverage the engagement, efforts, and resources of key partners and stakeholders to build, align, and strengthen an educational pipeline that prepares all students for high-wage, high-demand, and high-skill careers.
