Stanford-Sequoia K-12 Research Collaborative
The Stanford-Sequoia K-12 Research Collaborative is a research practice partnership between the Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE) and nine local school districts. It began in 2016 as an idea shared by Dan Schwartz, Dean of the Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE), and Jim Lianides, former superintendent of the Sequoia Union High School District. Their idea was to create a long-standing, mutually beneficial partnership between the GSE, Sequoia Union and its 8 elementary feeder districts. Since the 2016 launch, this Collaborative has co-developed 20 research projects with Stanford researchers. Our research focuses on supporting the long-term success of multilingual learners across the nine districts by identifying the conditions, resources, strategies, policies and practices that lead to positive outcomes for students.
