Q&A with a Parent and School Leader

Post date: Aug 18, 2017 12:56:57 PM

Daniel Allen and Jaime Ramirez discuss multi-modal efforts to message personalized learning at Advanced Learning Academy in Santa Ana Unified School District. Advanced Learning Academy opened in Fall 2015 as the first district dependent charter school in SAUSD. The school focuses on personalized learning environments for students - meaning most concretely a combination of project based and competency based learning. Students are group by competency level as opposed to grade level. The school has no attendance zone, but rather is a district-wide school of choice. The school opened with grades 4-6, expanded to grades 3-8 last year, and currently serves students grades 3-9 with an Early College program. After the video, check out an infographic about the school as well as their English and Spanish school brochures.
