This AB2648 report provides a blueprint for California as it expands pathways in the state.
ConnectEd works in partnership with policymakers, educators, employers and others to promote state policy that enables the creation and expansion of Linked Learning. The following objectives guide our work in the policy arena.
INFORM policymakers, educational leaders, business and industry representatives, parents, advocates, and others stakeholders about the social and economic benefits of increasing student access to Linked Learning. The Linked Learning Alliance’s Legislative Watch keeps stakeholders informed on recent legislative proposals.
CONNECT a range of stakeholders to foster healthy dialogue about education reform needs and opportunities.
BUILD local and state coalitions of partners comprised of stakeholder groups supporting Linked Learning as a vehicle for transforming today's education to meet the needs of tomorrow’s economy.
ADVANCE the development of policy supporting Linked Learning at local, state, and federal levels by offering policymakers technical assistance including conducting research, providing lessons learned from schools implementing Linked Learning, drafting language, and providing expert testimony upon request.
Note: ConnectEd is not a lobbying organization and must receive a written request from policymakers to work on legislative issues.
