Governor Brown visits Alliance schools

When Alliance College-Ready Public Schools began, our mission was to prove that a network of public schools serving low-income students could be consistently excellent. We sought to be innovators who could share our successes with educators across the state and nation. After ten years, we continue to work towards that goal.

Governor Jerry Brown, State Board of Education Member Trish Williams, and Executive Director of the State Board of Education Karen Staph-Walter visited Alliance Susan and Eric Smidt Technology High School and Alliance College-Ready Middle Academy 5 to learn about our blended learning initiative, known as BLAST. Also joining us were Alliance Board Member Ambassador Frank Baxter and Alliance supporters Susan Smidt and Nicole Mutchnik.

The Governor and his team saw how Alliance teachers are leveraging technology to increase their effectiveness, and the positive impact on students who receive more individualized attention as a result of BLAST.

We feel honored to have had this opportunity to share our experience with Governor Brown and are very proud to be recognized for our success as leaders and innovators in education. We look forward to continuing our work with state leaders to improve education for all students across California.
