Advocate

Alliance was founded in 2004 by longtime Los Angeles educators and community leaders who wanted to strengthen public education in our city. Motivated by their deep belief in the promise of all children and driven by a fierce commitment to social justice, they created Alliance College-Ready Public Schools.

At Alliance we amplify the voices of our families through different programs like the Parent Ambassador Program, the Parent Leadership Network, and through our wonderful school-based Parent Engagement Specialists. Parents can participate in carefully curated workshops and learn about legislation that directly impacts their children and their communities. Alliance families are our partners in advocating for high-performing, college-preparatory public education.

Charter Renewals

Charter Schools are governed under the 1993 Charter School Act and must seek reauthorization every five years. When an Alliance school is up for renewal, parents, staff and scholars share their public charter school experience with the Los Angeles United School District (LAUSD) Board Members through letter-writing campaigns and public comments during LAUSD Board meetings. The day of the renewal vote, the One Alliance spirit comes to life as scholars, families, and staff rally outside LAUSD headquarters.
