Engaging a Strategic Partner
In the spring of 2018, the La Sierra team joined California Education Partners’ College on Track collaboration, a collection of schools committed to improving college access for Black, Latinx, and socioeconomically disadvantaged students through the 2022-23 school year. The College on Track network is part of The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Network for School Improvement (NSI) initiative. Launched in 2018, the NSI supports networks of schools to support students of color and low-income students to increase access to and success within institutions of higher education. The students at La Sierra are now part of more than 250,000 students across 13 states supported by the NSI.
